This beautiful shoot with a sweet couple, Hannah and Tony, was put together by Ginny Au for Loom Curated, and took place at the Erich McVey Workshop in Elk, California. It was a truly moving experience to be a part of. Rather than directing the couple, as we would at a regular styled shoot, Hannah and Tony were given some blocking ahead of time, and then were instructed to find their own rhythm, and just “be” together. We, the photographers, were told only to capture the natural interaction between the two, and not to instruct or direct them. It was as if we were placed inside a raw, beautiful moment of everyday life. It was honest and true – what photography should be. This take on shooting was so different and so much more real than anything I’ve experienced before, and I absolutely adore what came out of it. It was a wonderful thing to be a part of. I’m so excited to share that this shoot was featured on Wedding Sparrow – one of my favorite wedding blogs!
