Last week I had the privilege of photographing a lifestyle session for Steve Limones. I’ve know Steve for years from working at Disney together. It feels as though we had been talking about doing a shot for aaages, I am so glad we were finally able to “get er done!” We shot in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, which was SO much fun! We felt very safe… especially at night.. [sarcasm]. Also, the cityscape got me super excited about my move to NYC. We had a homeless man try to sell us books so that he could buy a bus ticket, we ran out in the middle of the street for countless photos, we were heckled by lots of homeless men, the server at Cole’s gave us free drinks after our table was covered with mimosa glasses, Steve almost stole a mint vespa, and we laughed… a looooooot. I can’t even tell you how much fun we had. I think it shows in the photos. Anyway, enjoy the session and please share with your friends!
Steve asked the day before if he could bring his friend Jen Maletto for some Mad Men-ish photos. I wasn’t quite sure how we were going to achieve this.. But I am obsessed with what we got!
This is just me being a nerd. But this was shot with natural light. I couldn’t handle how amazing the light looked when we were shooting. Like a fat kid in a candy shop, jumping up and down.. That was me.
I mean, dear Lord they are perfect!
We started with mimosas at Coles.. then we ended back there with Steve in suit, Jen on his arm, and a Manhattan on the bar. The rest of the photos were shot in quite possible the darkest room in the history of the world. But I couldn’t be more pleased with what we got here. I think the following photos scream Mad Men. Special thanks to Steve’s hair dresser who tagged along for the shoot, Chelsea Feaselman from Salon TM:2. This woman did Jen’s up-do in literally 3 minutes. Fierce.
Not gonna lie. Never ordering a Manhattan again. Oy.
