Karissa + James Inaugural Steel Wool

post-1-3Well, this happened. It was only a matter of time before I found the right couple to try this with. My 4th attempt at a steel wool portrait and my first attempt with clients. Happy to report nothing was ignited; except for their love (cheesy joke anyone?). I so enjoyed shooting with this couple.

preview-1-3They are stylish, fun, energetic and the chemistry between them was electric.

There are so many gems from their session but for now, here is a sneak peek.

preview-1-6At the start of their session I handed each of them a stack of post-its and a pen. I asked them to list some of the reasons they love the other on each sheet. They were asked not to show each other their answers during the session and the big post-it reveal will happen when they receive their final photos.

post-1-2I also played around with long exposure with this couple and we not only got some cool steel wool shots but we also got this rad ghosting shot!

preview-1-2Just look at how adorable they are!

These are just a snippet from the session. Stay tuned! More soon!

  1. This looks amazing. I have been doing Steel Wool photos for a couple of years now and was wondering how did you get their faces light up but with out flushing them out.
