Love shoot: Kelly + Matt

katiestoops1

I’m totally loving this shoot that Courtney of Merriment Events did with photographer extraordinaire, Katie Stoops! Its got such a great vintage vibe, and I definitely think that last photo with the piano is my favorite! Courtney gives a little insight below…

Our couple are college sweethearts. They’re everything that being young and in love is about.

Since we were on a college campus in this magnificent old house called “Camelot,” we took a lot of our inspiration directly from the surroundings.

Camelot is a Grey Gardens kind of place. A house you can imagine was magnificent in its day, but has since fallen in disrepair. The disrepair is the cool part though. I felt like we were going back in time, to the kind of place where vintage books line bookshelves and unpolished silver is plentiful.

What is your aesthetic?modern with a touch of traditional, clean lines, bright, fresh

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? I’m very fun and outgoing (hence the orange walls). When designing our space, I laid out every single detail in my head then on paper before actually looking for each piece. The same with our clients, we like to get to know you and find out your personalities and story. Thus making each event personal and unique, down to the fine little details.

Favorite part of your studio? My office, it over looks the entire downtown Ypsilanti.

Where do you go for inspiration? Fashion, Home, Architect and of course wedding magazines/articles.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? My Mac, can’t live without nor do business:)

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? Yes, I would love to one day have a store front. The view is lovely up here but the interaction with people coming in and out everyday; would be awesome!!
