Ali + Andrew are simply awesome!
I met them last month through the sometimes-not-so-wonderful site Craigslist.com. Our initial meeting, however, had nothing to do with photography. I was selling 2 chairs on there that they were interested in purchasing for an event vintage rental company that they are starting up. Unfortunately, the sell didn't happen, but I definitely feel like I got something better out of it. Seeing that they were both very laid back people, and knowing that they had a lot of cool "antiques" on hand, I decided to go on a whim and ask if they would like to collaborate on a shoot one day. I told them to check out my blog and to get back to me if they were interested. Well, about a month and a half later, we made it happen.
Me, Ali + Andrew, and my longtime friend and fellow aspiring photographer AJ Perkins (who contributed a few of these shots as well) set out to our destination with our gear on hand and a truck full vintage pieces and we shot the day away. We probably shot a lot longer than we needed to, but Ali + Andrew were super troopers the whole time so we took advantage of everything we were working with and shot for as long as we could. Also, major props (no pun intended) go to Ali and AJ Perkins for a lot of the design aspect of the shoot. It was awesome.
