Designing a Shoot: From Glam to In-N-Out Burger
So you ask... how did we go from a huge pastel flower crown to stuffing down a Double Cheeseburger at In-N-Out.
Short answer: Tom, Neesha, and I styled the shoot
Longer-blog-length answer: Well here we go
Designing a shoot can either go in two directions: the client brings in their own ideas and concepts to tell me how exactly they want to look or the client fully trusts me to create a beautiful photo shoot for them.
Neesha and Tom were in the latter group. They never had couple portraits taken and they both didn't remember the last time they had their pictures taken. (First timers are one of my favorites to photograph!!)
So first we determined that the shoot was going to be two parts: First, for Neesha's portraits and second, for the two of them together.
They liked the idea of studio portraits but also wanted some outdoors. I asked them if they had anywhere in mind, Tom brought up the classic arboretum. I thought aw they probably have cute memories from there but apparently, they've never been! So I rephrased the question to: "is there a significant spot in Davis where you shared a romantic moment?
"In-N-Out" Tom joked.
ON THE SHOOT DAY
The shoot day came around fast and we started it off as we planned. We put Neesha into make-up & hair and glam'd it up in the studio.
We got to utilize the beautiful flower crown we have and of course our oh-so-popular tulle dress (I really need to order more variety, seriously)! Of course, Tom was in and out of shots 🙂
Before we headed off to In-N-Out, we decided to hit up the park right next to us to get a few shots.
We captured some beautiful shots there but the sun was dropping so fast out of nowhere so with fresh In-N-Out burgers and fries in mind, we jolted for our cars and raced our way to our last stop.
Now, THIS is the proper way to end your 8th-anniversary photoshoot.
Hope everyone enjoyed this blog post with the gorgeous images as much as we enjoyed producing everything 🙂
