Lacey & Martin Engagement

When I found out that Lacey & Martin were BOTH art students, I knew I wanted to try some very different and experimental stuff for their engagement session! On one hand it was inspiration to step outside of the box, and on the other hand, it was a lot of pressure to create something very unique and different for a couple who already lives outside of the box in their everyday lives! ;-) I wanted to create more abstract images... striving to make unique pieces of art. Some of the things I attempted were a great success, and some were not so successful. I'll let you be the judge. ;-)

This little sculpture is a piece of Lacey's art and I LOVE what she did with it! The subject is actually found in the negative space between the two pieces- if you look long enough, you'll see the shape of a pregnant woman outlined by sculpture.

We had started off in the Broad Ripple area and ended up in downtown Indianapolis, along the canal. I planned for about half of our session to be after dark, so we could get some great night shots and try some different lighting techniques.

  1. I really liked them - different angles and different perspectives. Love the expression on Lacey's face when their hands are joined. The skyline one is neat. The last one has great color. COOL :)

    I love the last one, but they're all really interesting. I think you could look at each of them several times and find something new each time. Great job!

  6. I LOVE it! you are so creative with trying new things, and SO gifted at using available light in unique ways. I like a ton of them, but my favorites are probably the b/w with the stripes on the wall, and the one of their legs in the grass. Congrats!

    I really love the second to last image! I think it creates a very intimate and personal look into their relationship.
