We were recently described as very risqué wedding photographers and it made me chuckle. I’ve been asked on numerous occasions to describe the Applehead ‘style’. My reply is always the same…its just what we do. The second I attach some adjective to what we do we’re doomed. If we’re edgy can we be whimsical? If we’re romantic can we then be salacious?
In a recent discussion w Spencer Lum about trends and getting caught up in fads he told me this, “… what’s interesting is that your perspective is so distinctly you, and you take pictures with a clear voice.” Spencer is like my Seth Godin so this meant a lot but what struck me the most was that he didn’t use any adjectives.
In an industry so full of sharing, copying, trends and fads, workshops and actions its ironic that the one thing we have that sets us part from all the others is not something that can be bought or found online. Yes, some things we shoot are risqué but some are just completely over the top, ridiculously cute and adorable. Call it whatever you want, its just something we do and we hope you like it.
If you’re interested in risqué, check back tomorrow for a look at a few images from Susanne’s Burnside Honeymoon Suite photo shoot.
