I know these guys have been eagerly waiting for this blog post, so I am thrilled to present (drum roll please) some images from Richard and Brantley’s downtown portrait session! Brantley and Richard are an awesomely (not sure if that’s a word) talented husband and wife photography team down in Columbia, South Carolina (be sure to check out their work by clicking here) who actually stumbled upon our blog back at the beginning of the year, and have been avid blog stalkers ever since! Brantley decided to shoot us out an e-mail a few months ago introducing herself, and asking about the possibility of us traveling down to Columbia to shoot a session for their two year anniversary this November. Low and behold, it turned out they’d end up being in the Cleveland area in July on business, so we decided to bump up our session a few months and show them around town a bit as well. They were quite incredible models in front of the camera, and we’ve all become good friends since we met up a few weeks ago. Not only are they amazing artists themselves, but its kind of scary just how much we all have in common with each other! Rachel and I will be traveling down to South Carolina to give a workshop for the South Carolina Professional Photographers Association this November, and we are really looking forward to seeing and spending some more time with Richard and Brantley during that time. Thanks again guys for allowing us the privilege of capturing your relationship through our lens. We feel tremendously blessed to call you friends!
Richard and Brantley allowed us to do whatever we wanted creatively, and we were thrilled to try out some new locations we’d scouted out.
There’s a ton of color downtown!
This idea has been on the books for quite a while, and I’m glad we were finally able to give it a try!
Brantley did have one request for her session: She wanted an awesome Linczak reflection shot! Sign, sealed, delivered!
Another one of our newer locations…
This is probably my favorite shot of the day!
You guys rocked it! We’re really looking forward to hanging out some more in a few months!
