Hurricane of Fabulousness









Our engagement shoot photos are in. See them on Max Wanger's blog HERE. A "hurricane of fabulousness"! Realizing that the two of us were uncomfortable in front of the camera, Max had us stand at certain marks and would then "disappear." Le cub and I would hear Max or Margaux instructing us to kiss from some spot that we couldn't see, and then the magic would happen. There wasn't a single moment when Max counted down and asked us to smile. This probably explains why all the photos are so candid and voyeuristic. Max was our lil' stalker. Somewhere in our deck of 75 processed photos (we haven't seen them all yet) will be 5 shots for my parents. Shots of us smiling and looking straight into the camera. But le cub and I love the shots taken through the strange crevices that Max found. We also love that all the kissing shots mask my cub's blinking eyes and my flat face. And boy, does Beans look handsome! Those shots were taken right outside our apartment in Burbank :) You'd never guess. Max is just brilliant like that.
