This week we’re going to finish off with some inspiration from the You + Me* girls for a stop-motion save the date video! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and see you here on Monday for the video itself…its a good one! – Vané
We love any kind of animation, and were dying to try our hand at a stop motion save the date after seeing so many amazing stop motion videos (see, for example here, here, and here) hit the internet over the last few years. Mike and Amber, our couple from the the cozy couples’ shower last month, seemed like the perfect couple for this endeavor; they’re fun, spontaneous, and love to try new things. They’re Brooklynites through and through, so we took old-school Brooklyn as our inspiration, along with healthy doses of Sam Cooke and fashionable bikes. We think you’ll love the finished product, and can’t wait to share it with you!

So here’s a fun take on a photoshoot…a collaboration between Brookelyn Photography and You + me* is always interesting..it starts off with an inspiration board and a cryptic set of directions, and goes from there!
for your photoshoot, we would like to capture the essence of your life as a couple in New York. Our concept for your shoot is “refined paparazzi”–we’re not going to go chasing you down the street or anything, but for the first part of the shoot, we’d like to capture images of you without you posing at all. To get the spontaneity we’re looking for, we’ll send you a box with some provisions for the shoot, and with a note telling you where to meet us. When you get to said place, you’ll text us letting us know you’re there, and then set off to explore the place together for about a half hour. We’ll be behind the scenes taking pictures of you as if you’re just going about your day. After we’ve gotten some truly un-posed images, we’ll meet up with you, and get some posed photos that still have an essence of spontaneity.

It doesn’t get more NYC than Little Italy, right? Loving these shots…they’re making me hungry for a slice!

Cia and I went to the same college, so it was a fun surprise to see her wedding in my inbox…lovely little details abound, so enjoy!
Cia and Jamie were married on a beautiful warm fall day in Oakland, California. Food was a priority for Cia, she works for the James Beard Foundation, and they chose Pizzaiolo for their setting. Besides the fresh, local tastings, the best part of the day was the bocce court, the chickens roosting in the coup in the backyard and the very touching and entertaining speeches.
