A few months back my good girlfriend, Angela Hawkins enlisted the help of TRUE YOU to bring to life an amazing idea she had for her forthcoming engagement shoot.
The inspiration, you ask?
THE FRICKIN' WIZ!
The only word I could formulate was "YAAAAAAASSS!". It was something I hadn't seen before and one that I knew, creatively, would be so much fun.
Sharing her vision, I was amazed at how detailed she was in terms of what they envisoned. When I tell y'all this fab chick and her equally style-conscious fiancé, Devin Richards, had every detail covered, they had EVERY DETAIL COVERED! That made it so very easy to mesh their desires with the T.Y. expertise by hooking them up with the Virtual Styling and True Beauty packages.
Drawing inspiration from the original film, Wizard of Oz and the 1970s theatre/film adaptation, The Wiz, I was able to bring their featured look to life without it reading cheesy and over-themed. We both wanted those who viewed the photos to be forced to pay close attention to detail.
Combining that with two other set-ups featuring their stunning bridal party; the shoot was perfection! Shout-out to the world's greatest photographer, Joseph E. Gray, III. of JEG3 Photography -- YOU DONE, DONE IT AGAIN!
I am so blessed when it comes to my clients because the (future) Richards' were so much fun to work with. The energy was so positive and the love that filled the air was practically transferrable -- everybody got in on it!
Now that their I Do! date is only 10 months away, ease on down to ROADTORICHARDS.COM for more shots from our session and to learn more about these lovebirds!
