The Skinny

Hey folks (and Mom),
Sorry we don't have an album up yet. With over 2,500 pictures to choose from, you can imagine the massive job dear, sweet, wonderful Joel has ahead of him. (Not to mention the possibility of yet another shoot so Joel can play with his new $4,000 camera) So, to satisfy a few restless blog fans....ahem Mrs. Linden....I'll give you the run down on just how the massive project went.

I gave the power to Tay and Joel, "Come up with what ever and we'll do it". I in no way regret this as the team came up with some pretty awesome shots. Tay wanted to go with a theme: recreating some classic and funny images from movies and around OC. Here's what they came up with (in order of shoot):

1: Film Noir--Tays favorite movie genre, and basically a reason to break out the hats. I wore my favorite, a black 1960's cocktail dress, and tay wore his grey three peice suit and fedora.
2: Aviator--We busted out our shades and some awesome vintage we had lying around for this puppy. I wore a vintage navy and red uniform while Tay got in some military getup. The lighting was great, the clouds were beautiful and Joel had blast capturing it all. ...Also Casey climbed a tree.
3: Prison Break--It turns out Jeremy, Tays roomie has a prison jump suit (the real deal). So he got dressed up as a convict, while I donned a vintage ladies pin stripe suit, what else would a classy lawyer wear? We spent a great deal of time running up and down the bible building steps (in heels).
4: OC engage-tastic-- We played up the cheesy, typical OC forum engagement shots. Nerdy clothes, stiff poses, and RIDICULOUS faces abound.
5: Glamour-- We were given a generous and rare opportunity to use the recital hall stage and the beautiful grand. I put on my creamy colored silk gown and Tay put on a tux. Elegant...and probably the only ones our parents will be unashamed to frame.
6: The next day we reshot some of the glamor shots to try some different lighting.
7: 1920's speak easy-- Another ridiculous idea that can only be given justice with actual pictures. me-sparkly dress and havy makeup (think Lillian Gish/Mary Pickford). Tay-bowtie, tangtop, suit vest. Hilarious.
8: Band shots-- in the recital hall again. We brought together a bunch of friends. It was BYOI (bring your own instrument). We sat in the seats and then moved to the stage for some gorrvy, relaxed group shots. I believe the term is chil-laxed.
9: Solo shots-- the final shoot? Just Tay and I on guitar and auto harp, rockin out and looking like we're in love.

It was al ot. Understatement. It was a ton. Joel was great, and I'm excited to see some of the edited pictures from the second day. We'll keep you posted on the album jazz.
