Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Alexis & Gerard are Engaged!

Alexis & Gerard are Engaged!

As a wedding photographer, you would think I study the wedding magazines for photography ideas. But honestly, I don't. I boycott them.

Instead, I study fashion magazines. I love marrying the beauty of a wedding day with a fashion flair and throwing in a touch of passion. Anyone can take a shot of two people kissing. It's the intensity of what I call the "almost kiss" shot that I love so much. That last second before two lips touch, it's a little bit flirty, a little bit of a tease, and a lot way hot. It's the shot in fashion ads that say "I need it, I want it, I gotta have it now." (I'm referring to the clothes the models are selling, of course. )

Yeah, um, Alexis and Gerard have this shot mastered.

When Alexis and I were first emailing about her wedding, she told me her and Gerard were both former models and attached a bunch of pictures of their old portfolio photos asking if we could get some high fashion style photos for their engagement pictures. I immediately became giddy!!

I went down to Miami, where they live and one of the fashion capitals of the world, to shoot their session. We had so much fun in the hustle and bustle of South Beach and trespassing on protected sand dunes while Alexis and Gerard got their supermodel on.

While shooting the session, I was also being filmed for a new promo video I will be releasing in the next few weeks! I can't wait to debut it very soon with the BIG news!!!

It was so hard to pick favorites from their session, but here they are and their slideshow below!










Gerard reminds me of hottie James Mardsen in this pic:










The "almost kiss." Love it!




An accidental shot but I love how it didn't phase them that a million people were walking by.










Another accidental shot when I was testing lighting. I normally would have deleted this shot because it was waaaay underexposed but playing around, I brought it back in RAW, and I don't know, I kind of like this one. Something about their caught off guard expression intrigues me. I'm not into editing with add-on textures like what is trendy right now in the industry, but if I were to like textures, I would like natural ones like this.


















I love the security guard casually riding by.




This is the part where we were trespassing.










I didn't realize this at the time of shooting, but I love love love the people in the background as Alexis and Gerard just hang out like supermodels.









The happy couple and I and my fabulous assistant, Rachel!

Oh....My....God! Scarlett you never cease to amaze me with your talent. I have the same philosophy on wedding photography and engagement sessions when shooting my couples. I want them to feel like they are super models for a day. Of course I haven't succeeded nearly as well as you have. But I am working on it! You are awesome! (And the couple aren't so bad looking themselves ; )

First off, I like the 14th one better than the "almost kiss" one. In response to your previous post, I understand a little about the risque part. But a little mix is fine. As my friend put it once, you want a few photos that your grandma can put on her coffee table! : )

Oh, and she looks more like Keri Russell than he does James Marsden. Not that he's not nice looking, but James Marsden... Whew!!!

Oh, yeah, the photo with your assistant reminded me of a question: Do all you girls just pay back favors and second shoot for free or do you all pay each other? Just wondering what the industry standard is.

The pictures are amazing!!! We are sooooooooo happy! I am glad that you got so many good ones. It is funny that you said Gerard looks like James Mardesn, he gets that a lot. I really like the way the music works with the slide show too. Thank you, thank you for all your hard work (and Rachel too!) I cannot wait to show my sister!

Great job. Her curls are so great. Makes me wish I hadn't chopped all mine off. You all look so cute in the last picture. That may be the best hold the camera out and hope we all squeeze in at the end of the night picture I've ever seen!

Rachel- Thanks for all your help!!!!!!!!!! Many more fun times ahead!

Jona- So thrilled I could help inspire you!

Jackie- Oooh cool, no I don't get V, but I do get W. Bring a copy of V next month when you are here!

Susan J- LOL, yeah I'm starting to wonder if God has plans for me to get married too! I'm sure He'll surprise us both when we least expect it!

Caroline- We rock!

April- I definitely do a mix. I was just talking about what rocks my world creatively! And good question about the standards for payment.... I'm about to launch a new opportunity for other photographers to come spend a day with me and ask me anything you want. I hope you'll participate!

Alexis- Woo hoo! You guys rocked it! I can't wait for your wedding day to get my camera back on you!

Ashley- LOL, yeah and believe it or not, that was the first try! Gotta love the 28 1.8

Danielle- I know they will be! Can't wait to shoot yours too!

These are so amazing, as always!! I'm always so anxious to ask clients to attempt shoots like this where there might be passersby and lots of human traffic, but these seriously inspire me to suggest it to my clients! They are fantastic!!
