The breakdowns of roles are as follows:
‘RURAL BOHEMIAN COUPLE’
This couple is warm, sweet, knowing, and comfortable with one another. Their style is modern bohemian - not overly organic or hippie, but approachable, tasteful and laid back. This couple spends their time at the farmers’ market, cooking delicious vegan food, or helping one another with their craft-of-the-moment. They can laugh together easily, but they’re mostly sweet and gentle with one another.
This couple can be any gender-makeup, any race, and any size, as long as they can believably embody the ‘modern bohemian’ look.
‘THE CLASSIC COUPLE’
A couple (could be same gender), they are very in touch with their feelings and can express big emotions. They are quick to happy tears, especially when they get a look at their fiance in wedding attire. Classically dressed with an edge, they are unafraid to ham it up in front of the camera and really soak in the moment together.
They enjoy the outdoors, hiking with their dog, and a nice drive in the countryside. Romantic and a little bit dramatic, this couple’s wedding photos express a ton of personality and editorial flair - they know how to work a room and slay a couple’s photo.
‘THE URBAN COOL COUPLE’
Non-traditional, cutting edge, and confident, this couple is sexy without being overly affectionate or showy. They are two individualized creative souls who have come together to bring out the best in one another, and their artistic lifestyle has brought them together. Their style is effortless cool - unique accessories, structured ensembles from thrifted pieces, color-blocked wardrobe. They are all about nonconformity, adventure and shirking tradition in favor of what truly moves them.
They are always the coolest couple in the room.
‘THE QUIRKY COUPLE’
This couple is playful, a tiny bit awkward, but so deeply in love they can’t fake it.
They’re into games: long-form strategy, role playing, retro video games, whatever is in front of them, and there is a DIY flair to everything they do. They are silly without being downright goofy, but embrace any awkwardness with humor and wit. Their uniqueness is their bond.They see the world as playful, because at their core, playfulness is what brought them together.
