Hey guys :: it’s been a pretty busy year for us. I would love to share album I recently was working on. It has been amazing
experience to work with Max and Julie. They both have such passion for life. We enjoyed every second talking to them.
SAVE THE DATE SESSION
About five month before a wedding day Max called me to talk about setting up an additional photo session for “Save the Date” cards. So one weekday
we set up time (about 30 minutes) to have a quick photo session. So in the veining time when we meet up at Starbucks Julie already
had veil in her hair and she was dressed in gym tights. So right of way I knew this was going to be a very unique shoot. Max told me
that they already knew the idea they were trying to accomplish and they had to run to another appointment. Very quickly I picked up
on their idea and “Save the Date” turned out amazing! Here is link to view best save the date design idea
About a month later Max and I set up time for for an engagement photo session. Usually for engagement sessions we meet up at
certain location however Max and Julie asked me to stop by at their residence. They invited me in
and when I came in there were so many kids crying and I just thought that Julie needed extra 10 minutes to get ready for a photo shoot
but when Julie came out they said that photo session is going to be inside their home and all this kids were brought for an engagement photo shoot.
At that point I didn’t knew what it was , so Max filled me in with their story line. The idea was to shoot 3 scenarios to show 3 phases in their life.
The first one was when they are young, second one when they were one big happy family. For this that Max dressed up as a business man who just
came after work and needs to help his wife around family helping feed 7 kids. And third phase was when they get old. For that
Max and Julie borrowed their grandparents cane and support walker. Personally I bought it was a very bold move to put such an amazing
idea. But I have to tell you that this 2 sessions totally reflect this couple. The text that Maks and Julie came up with for invitation was written
by them, and again is totally amazing. It makes me smile every time I look at it. Just love it! Here it link to Makxand Julie invitation card design
Sept. 19 2010 was the wedding day. The wedding day turned out to be awesome as well! I really enjoyed shooting at this private place where we went to.
The location was very quite with so many private spots. One of my favorite shoots is when I asked Julie and Max to stand on top
of the table see spreads below. After the photo session the entire bridal party went to downtown and stopped at Makuni Sushi Bar, and after that
we went to ceremony and reception place which was Croatian american cultural center.
