I don't keep up with too many of the current trends in wedding photography but I have noticed an uptick in at-home (in-home?) portrait sessions with couples. Usually when things trend I don't intentionally seek them out but when Clarissa & Peter approached me with the idea I was pretty intrigued. I mean, when two architects invite you into their personally designed home, you gotta take that opportunity as a photographer. I couldn't have asked for a more ideal setting, seriously, I'm trying to convince them to rent this place out to me for future personal portrait work. Anyway, the large windows + white walls created some incredible lighting, it was dream-like, almost hyper-real. The atmosphere felt like an editorial photoshoot, with hip-hop playing throughout the house's internal sound system.
We were vibing on good tracks and Peter made us a killer pour-over coffee. I felt right at home and got to experience why this place is so meaningful to them and their relationship… it’s a literal work of art they collaborated in creating, something truly special.From there we hit up the weird pants statues that you can see from the DVP here in Toronto. Clarissa & Peter are fans of weird, minimal art, so I used that as an excuse to explore this particular place I’ve always noticed driving home from work back at one of my old photojournalism jobs.
To Sum - good tunes, good coffee, good people, good light, crazy cool house, cute dog,weird pants statue art, good times.
