Time & Travel: A Victorian Couple in the 21st Centur
I've always been fascinated by shadow and light, which makes sense because I'm a photographer. When I was in high school and college, I loved taking art history classes and studying the different lighting techniques invented and used by great artists. When I became a photographer, I made it a goal to take photos mimicking the light from 18th century art. So when an early 20th century minded couple approached me about photos, how on Earth could I possibly turn the opportunity down to fuse together two of my favorite time periods?
I loved blending in the personalities of these two. Christina and Wervyn love dressing up and brought tons of interesting props from their home. Wervyn has amazing bone structure and his serious expression really brought authenticity to these photos. We also used Christina's type writer and quill pen as a nod to her writing profession.
Honestly, I can't get enough of these kinds of portraits. They were so much fun to create, and I'd love the opportunity to photograph anyone interested in recreating another time period. Just send me an email (Christina[at]photosayshello.com) and I'd be more than happy to work with you!
