Gold glitter/sequin/sparkle dresses are my favorite because they photograph so, so well. They turn into little shimmery magical fabrics of fabulousness in front of the camera and if everyone could just take a page out of this blog post and wear nothing but gold glitter dresses from now on, that would be great. It doesn’t even really have to be gold. Just any glitter or sequins. Basically, turn into a 1920s flapper and we’ll be good to go. Speaking of 1920s, does Tim here remind anyone else vaguely of Michael Pitt? We totally should have done a Boardwalk Empire themed engagement session with these guys, but I have a feeling it wouldn’t end up being particularly romantic since I’m pretty sure that show had at least one death per episode. Instead, Stephanie wore a beautiful sequin sparkle dress and Tim vaguely reminded me of Michael Pitt and we were graciously granted permission from the 21C Museum Hotel in Durham to shoot in their old bank vault in an un-Boardwalk Empire way (although the vault could have very well been from the early 1900s… and we did make Stephanie use a very old wall telephone… and they laid on a floor covered in fake money…….. you know what? Maybe this was more Boardwalk Empire than I thought). They posed dramatically, they cuddled for a while, they ate pizza while showing us the Stranger Thangs RIP Barb video. All in a day’s work. A special second thanks to Pie Pushers in downtown Durham for also graciously granting us permission to shoot in their shop.
