Megan Light Test

"HEY MEGAN!  Wanna come stand in front of my camera for 30 minutes to an hour?" "Uhhh... sure!"

And THAT'S... how this shoot happened. :)

I've been admittedly addicted to a wonderful website full of photography workshops and after watching a string of them, I was inspired to go outside and play with light!  It was a really spur of the moment shoot, completed with running up and down stairs as I realized that there were things inside that I wanted, in order to accomplish my experiment, bribing my husband to come outside with Megan and I to hold equipment, and ending back in my home watching silly Youtube parodies of Gangnam Style while classily sipping a glass of wine.

Now, Megan and I have worked together on several different occasions.  The FIRST time was on her Gears of War inspired engagement shoot!  The second time was on a boudoir shoot, and the third time was for their Gears of War, comic book hero, zombie infused wedding!!!  (I admittedly haven't gotten a blog posted about that yet, but I plan to!).

Megan is absolutely one of my favorite people to photograph!  She's funny, quirky, and totally beautiful!  Shooting with Megan is definitely more like just hanging out (except I happen to be holding a camera), than like a photo shoot.  ^_^

The one that almost got away...

Remember Meagan and Jerimiah? Well, I was getting ready to burn their images to a disk and I thought to myself... wait a minute... there's one missing!

When I had gone back and doubled checked, sure enough, I had missed one!

I processed these images out of order because she needed some sooner than later, so I got her the ones she needed first... which caused me to forget to process one! O_o  Whoops... my bad!  But I processed it and I think it's pretty awesome (they look so awesome with their Gears of War lancers!!) so I wanted to share it with all of you! ^_^

Here it is!

Megan and Jerimiah

Megan and Jerimiah are getting married in April (Yay!  Congratulations, guys!), and getting engaged means it's time for an engagement shoot! Megan and Jeremiah are also huge Gears of War fans.

Megan and Jerimiah are also fun people.

Megan and Jerimiah... ... ...

Haha, sorry, I had to.

SO... putting all those things together, Megan told me that she didn't want a "normal" engagement shoot, so we had some fun with it!

We did the shoot at the Bethlehem Steel Stacks for a more industrial look, incorporated some lancers from the game, and then made sure to capture some goofy moments to really display what Megan and Jerimiah's relationship is like... FUN!

I processed this set a little differently than I usually do, because since we were inspired by a video game, I wanted to give them a slightly more surreal feel.
