Sweet as can be, Ilene & Andrew had hired me just a few months ago to shoot their June 2012 wedding. During our initial meeting we had talked about some ideas for their Vintage Raleigh Engagement Photos that they wanted to emulate during their session. I was stoked at the idea of it and of course recommended my fabulous hair & makeup artiste, Margo Williams of Belloviso. Ilene was sold! The vision truly can’t happen without Margo and her artistry. Day of makeup and hair proved impeccable.
We opted to start in studio at Swank Photo Studio in Smithfield NC with our studio Hollywood lights to emulate the look of the period style imagery dating back to the 195o’s. Andrew was a great sport! He came dubbed in his best vintage inspired suit and fedora.
Afterwards, we headed to downtown Selma, home of the antique district to get some close to sunset pictures. Can’t beat that late afternoon light. The pair really hammed it up during their session and played the part. The backdrop of the downtown Selma area was idyllic. I look forward to their Beatles style wedding.
