Around the beginning of December my buddy Krispen contacted me wondering if I could do a couples shoot with He and his Girlfriend Genelle. He said. “I don’t want the same old boring couples photo. A little more creative…”. This was something I’d been looking for, for a long time. Basically free reign over the initial concept and artistic impression. I asked him to send me some info on the two of them to help build the idea. Pets, work, some favorite stuff, etc. I already knew Krispen was a bit of a snappy dresser, so that helped, but he shot back an email that made my mind race. They had 2 dogs, a Great Dane and a Doberman and 3 cats. Genelle was a vet, she enjoys wine, and Krispen enjoys Manhattans and a Cigar now and then. After a couple of days I had the idea in place and they were all for it. One image, with every component to be shot separately, that tried to capture as much as possible, and put together with a sense of humor.
