Starry Love Story, Lufkin TX
This is one of my favorite photos from Emilee and Michael’s engagement session in downtown Lufkin. It was obvious right away that these two are wildly in love. They had that beautiful private intimacy at all times, despite being in front of our cameras. I love seeing love like that!
Lufkin is a fun place to shoot; they have lots of cool murals. I draw inspiration from a lot of amazing wedding photographers, but here you can clearly see the influence of Todd Laffler. Todd loves to use graffiti, murals and street scenes, and he loves to make the couple very small in the frame. I like it. I think it conveys that they were having a private love moment in the corner of a big scene. And of course I’ve loved Vincent van Gogh since I was a child. I’m not sure who painted the mural, but they did a great job.
What’s up smuggers? I’ve been crazy busy moving across the country and trying to start a new business and we are finally getting settled down now. Sala is doing great, thanks for those who’ve been asking. I’ve got a question for you. How do you like the new smugmug? Does anyone know what’s happening with communities? I’ve heard they won’t support communities in the new smug. Does this mean goodbye? Nope, we’ve got a facebook group here. Join us there or suggest another place to stay connected. Another question: has anyone else’s photo views gone wild over the last few days? I’m averaging something like 35,000 views over the last four days, despite only posting one new photo in that period. Before these last four days I averaged about 7,500 views a day for the last year, so this is quite a huge jump. What’s going on?
