Two weeks ago, on January 1st, Colin and I had the pleasure of driving up to Santa Monica Pier to meet the lovely Mary Frances and Scott Chrisman of Floataway Studios, a brand new photography/videography team for engagements, weddings, and people in love!
Mary and Scott are destined to be hugely successful in their new venture together. It was an incredible experience working with them. Not only are they fun to be around, but also impeccably professional. Having done modeling work before in my life, I can tell you that Mary and Scott were both excellent at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. They encouraged us, and made us feel like we uniquely special in our love and how we looked in the images. If that's not one of the best traits of a photographer shooting couples, I don't know what is.
Aside from that, I've worked with a wedding photographer before, and I know others in the industry. Mary and Scott have a talent and eye for this work that surpasses any I've seen, including people who have been in the business for far longer, and are considered among the best. Soon, the rest of the industry will be keeping an eye on these two. Mary and Scott are unique in their talent, and the images I've seen from various couples in their portfolios prove it. Their style and creativity is something I just haven't seen before, and their youth and spirit are clearly going to push them through the ranks of the highest caliber of photography. It was such an honor to be asked to join them in this journey at the beginning. Thank you both so much! I can't help but want to take the energy of that very first day of 2010 and carry it through the rest of the year, maybe even the decade.
I could easily post so many more images. No, really, it took me a ridiculous amount of time to just pick these. But, I want you to go to their site to see all the rest!
Well, okay. Just one more thing. Did I mention that Scott made an incredible video as well??
I highly recommend Floataway Studios for any of your photography and videography needs. Mary and Scott will make your love shine.
