Teaser: Megan and Michael’s Mad Men-themed engagement shoot

RK2 6170

I don’t do a lot of styled engagement sessions, mostly because I’m not a stylist, as anyone who’s seen the way I dress on “Image processing days” can tell you. But when a theme fits a couple’s personality and vision so well, and when they have Megan’s impeccable taste and precision … well, I think I spent most of this shoot excitedly giggling.

Since the theme was Mad Men, and not generic 1960s, I kind of wanted to turn “vintage wedding photography” on its head a bit. Mad Men is vintage only in its props, wardrobe and styling, but modern and gorgeous in its visuals, with nary an old-timey filter to be seen. Generally they are playing with more time and budget than five minutes in the back of Gramercy Park Hotel, but Megan and Michael still rocked it. I can’t wait to show the full set and all of the hard work Megan did, with everything 1963-appropriate from the newspapers to the dog leash.

Lens: 35mm f/1.4
Camera: Nikon D3s

Elissa - Oh this photo is such a tease! I can’t wait to see the rest….

Two Ring Studios - Can’t wait to see the rest. I’ve seen soooooo many engagement blog posts claiming to be “Mad Men” themed, but… they aren’t. This photo is just freakin’ awesome and has so much going for it. If anyone can pull off Mad Men theme as far as the photography, it’s you.

Jamie Seed - this is wonderful, can’t wait to see the rest!

Cate Waters - Is this two photos layered to have both people in focus? Awesome shoot!

Brianne Daul - my gorgeous friend, Megan Duffy & her dashing fiance, Michael Kinney look like they just stepped off the set of ‘Mad Men’. move over, Joan & Don! I can’t even deal. <3 <3
