Photo 5: Christine and Taylor Save the Date
Taken on April 3, 2010
I met Christine and Taylor when I started dating Sam.
Since then, they’ve become good friends. They are quirky, fun, and maybe as much into great food as we are.
When I met them, they were already engaged and also already had a photographer. I tried to forgive them.
They wanted to do something a little different and unique for their Save the Date announcements. They wanted a theme. The announcement was to be inspired by 1920’s and 30’s era playbills and encourage guests to travel to exciting Nebraska for adventure and thrills.
And it required photos.
Knowing that I specialize in creative portraits, they asked if I could help out. Costumes. Makeup. Hairstyles. Sets. Are you kidding? This is right up my alley!
We needed locations. I knew the perfect place: The Rogers House Bed and Breakfast Inn. Built in 1914 and restored to fit the era, the Rogers House perfectly fit the target time period. Better yet, being friends with the owner, I was able to get us full access to the house for a photo session.
With costumes on and makeup and hair done by Sam (did I mention she’s also a fantastic vintage makeup and hairstyle artist?), we embarked on our own adventure.
The day was amazing. All of the photos turned out great and it’s impossible for me to pick just one favorite. This one, however, of the couple enjoying their morning tea in the sun room before embarking on their adventure, seems to capture all of the feelings we were going for.
