I absolutely love when a couple comes to me with a unique idea. It challenges me as a photographer and it increases the chance of creating one of a kind images.
Meet Keyon and Alana. Almost exactly 10 years ago to date, these two met while working at Target in Long Beach, CA. Keyon was a world-class cart attendant while Alana managed the store register. When she was just 15 years old, Alana used to pray for her ideal man. She asked for someone who was tall, dark and handsome and as soon as she first laid eyes on Keyon, she knew that he was the man of her “dreams.” It was a sunny afternoon when Alana approached her future husband on her day off to ask him on a date. Needless to say, Keyon said yes and 10 years later we are here! In honor of how they met, Keyon and Alana decided to have a photo shoot using Target. Now I have to admit, initially I was a bit apprehensive about the idea but after we spent some time acting like kids again I knew that this was a great idea! After having some fun with a few grocery carts, we headed downtown to capture some intimate shots under the night lights of Long Beach. Who would have though that these two had some GQ Magazine modeling skills in their bag.
Overall this turned out to be a pretty amazing day spent with amazing people. Congratulations on 10 years of love!
