underwater | thomas + laura

Yay again! More underwater fun from one of several of our underwater portfolio shoots we did over the summer. We have to give a major shout-out to Thomas and Laura for jumping in the pool with us on this one! Laura is actually a very talented wedding-planner who we’ve worked with several times over the last year. As we were brainstorming couples who we thought would be fun to do an underwater shoot with, we knew Laura would be a great person to ask because of her fun-loving personality. And when we met her husband, Thomas, for the first time as Laura was getting her makeup done, we knew we’d made a good choice! Both of their adventurous and outgoing personalities made for a great set of images from their shoot. We’re so glad they were up for the challenge (swimming in evening-wear is no joke, guys), and we’re so thankful for Erin of Erin Ashley Makeup for doing astounding waterproof makeup for us!

Yay! Finally posting some images from a really fun shoot we did over the summer! We shot this session smack-dab in the middle of June wedding craziness, just based on the availability of everyone who participated, knowing that our wedding work-load would make it difficult to get these portfolio images edited and posted since they were mostly for our own artistic experimentation. We took Jamie’s bridal portraits (which you can view here) about 2 years ago for her October 2011 wedding. She was such a natural in front of the camera, that we asked her to model for this shoot. The incredibly talented Erin Chapman of Erin Ashley Makeup did an exquisite job doing artistic underwater makeup! We photographed this session at night so that we could experiment with some new lighting techniques. We chose a gown with lots of texture that would take on a lot of visual interest underwater. Check out our favorites from this fun night-time, underwater bridal-fashion shoot!
