April 29, 2009 - Engagements
brianna + brian
When we were talking with Brianna and Brian about their engagement shoot, Brian mentioned that he'd love to do a shoot inside Pearl Street Brewery, so we talked to the fine folks there and headed over for their awesome eshoot. Brianna had never been inside, but Brian couldn't get the thought of doing part of their shoot there out of his head, so we happily obliged. We love cool, old, brick exposed buildings, and while none of us had a clue what it's original purpose was, it's a killer building.
I love mirrors! And I love places that are decorated in that casual, "old stuff" style - if we had any old stuff at all, it's totally how I wish our house would look!
So, I'm changing lenses, and I come back to find this. Seriously? And you give me crap about the things I do without disability insurance?? You're in flip flops, Rich. On a handrail. Three feet of the ground. On a decline. Awesome.
Sometimes if I get stuck on an idea, I have to try to move to a few different spots to get the angle I want - and sometimes that spot is on a hand rail...and don't give me crap for wearing slippers...not only am I "da kine," it was about 90 degrees outside. Don't worry folks, I caught Alyssa in a ridiculous location later in the shoot and have photographic evidence...
This was one of my favorites of the day. Yummy!
And I also loved this one!
Yeah, it was a lot of fun to shoot around Pearl Street - it was lots of windows, so that was all good...
Because you can't do a shoot inside a brewery without a shot that screams brewery!
We headed outside and wandered around downtown for a while, and I have to say it was brutal. None of us thought to put on any sunscreen, and it was about 100 outside. We were all super confident we were going home sunburned (as Brianna and Brian are just about as pale as us!), but it made for some pretty light!
...in the shade, anyway :)
What's that you say?? A feet shot and a squirrel shot? I love me!
I was a little worried that squirrel was going to steal my wallet...
My mom used to hate squirrels, and she never understood why people hated rats, but had no problem with rats with bushy tails, Clearly, I was not allowed any rodents as pets.
And yes, they are too cute together!
So, every time we're driving downtown, I see these awesome wood garage doors at this church, and I'm always like, "Rich, we HAVE to go there!" And then every time we're with a couple downtown, I can't find them for the life of me. So guess what we found with Brianna and Brian?? Hell yeah! Seriously, aren't these doors cool?
I love this tiled wall! If you stare hard at it, two photographers pop out of it - like those stare-o-vision things in the mall (it's a sailboat!).
You were taking this, and Brian was mumbling something about never, ever coming back out to recreate this shoot when the sun went down, Admittedly, it was a pretty crazy alley, but I loved it!
Uhhh, so sometime I look down and, well, patience is not your best virtue...
Hey, if you take the best angle, I'll take what I can get! And I did get a killer shot, so I came out happy!
must hold back from obvious joke, must hold back from obvious joke, must hold back...
Veeeeeeery mature, Rich. Very, mature.
Anyway, guys, it was a great shoot, and thank you for hanging out in that really brutal sun with us all afternoon! You were awesome, and we can't wait to see you again soon!
