“It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter” – Alfred Eisenstaedt
These simple words have been our mantra from for a long time, and the concept was brought home the first time we met with Bri and her parents. Bri has a theatrical background and Jonathan is in the Navy and they met in an acting class, so when Jonathan proposed they decided the wanted to recreate Eisenstaedt’s famous photo V-J Day in Times Square. Needless to say, we were over the top excited to make it happen for them since we have always been huge fans of his work. On a side note, Bill actually got to meet Eisenstaedt in Dallas during his book tour for his book Witness to Our Time.
We decided that 2 engagement sessions were in order – the first at Fair Park with Jonathan in his Petty Officer uniform and Bri in the vintage 1940s nursing outfit. The end result recently won first place in a photo competition and we created this fantastic Save the Date for them. We parted ways and met up again later that day to do their “regular” engagement session which was just as stunning as their morning session.
