We have been trying to shake things up here at Casa Studio Sixty. See? Even just using the word casa is a bit risque don’t you think?! We are daredevils really – hiding out in the bodies of photographers and studio managers. We fear nothing – being shot out of a cannon – ho hum – being thrown to the lions – whatever – jumping off a cliff – yawn. To keep things fresh around here, we strive to do them a little bit differently – to push the envelope if you will.
We usually do our engagement portraits in some beautiful, outdoor, location somewhere – a location that we choose and scout and like for silly photographer reasons. But does that location actually mean something to the couple? To be honest, not usually. And do they look at their photos and think about their special, meaningful time spent there – um, well, actually no. So we thought why not shoot an engagement portrait in the couple’s home? We can take photographs of all the things that really mean something to them, letters, gifts, favourite spots to think and dream and hang out, right there in their own homes. We had been toying with the idea when we met Beau and Lauren so when we suggested it to them they were keen as mustard. So here are the photos – a work in progress – but then again aren’t we all just that, a work in progress?
