Friday night was the grand opening party of our friends Mike & Marcie’s new photography studio. The place was packed, the wine was flowing, and the photographs on display were incredible!
The highlight of the evening was the video release. This couple is insanely talented. They put together a short film (about 3 minutes) that tells an enchanted if not eerie love story. The film is set to music, and you just might recognize the actress & actor *wink, wink*. Also, you may have seen a sneak peek of that day here, maybe ;) .
As a gift, they gave us a huge print of this photo in a matted frame that now lives on the ledge behind our sofa. Thanks guys! You rock!
This was not our wedding, by the way. You can see our real wedding pictures (shot by the same photographers) here. This shoot was done purely for the love of the art and their passion for perfecting their craft.
This husband and wife photography team is always edgy and constantly pushing the envelope. See for yourself…
The Sterling Opera House in Derby, CT opened April 2, 1889. The video & pictures were shot at on April 2, 2011, its 122nd anniversary. This location is said to be extremely haunted, and even appeared very recently on the SyFy network’s “Ghost Hunters” reality show. A quick video clip of that episode can be seen here if you’d like to hear the history behind this place. I’m glad this aired AFTER we were inside this abandoned building!! YIKES!!
Today is the official public release of the video and photos they shot from that day.
You can see all of them by clicking this link. I just watched it on full-screen mode and got the chills! Feel free to poke around on their website. Their work is amazing. Please leave a comment on their blog to show your support!
Also shooting that day was Jennifer Dougan (you can see her blog here). Here’s a sample of her work…
Enjoy the photos & video!
