Having never participated in a professional photo shoot, E+M made us feel super comfortable and we were able to just relax. Walking around Bloomington, they found unique and fun backdrops that we would have never thought of. Our photos look great even WITHOUT all the Instagram filters we put on them.
Thanks to the excellent work of Erin and Mike (and general lack of mullets) our family portrait was able to avoid the Awkward Family Photo card section at Target
For several years, Mike and Erin have volunteered their time running their incredible photo-booth for our annual Rhino's fundraiser, "Chocolate Prom." The photo-booth is always such a huge hit for the kids and we love being able to share the photos after the event. Not only is it wonderful to see the gorgeous photos but it's hilarious to see how many kids will squish in to one photo and how creative they get with their poses. Thanks so much, T+S, for making our annual fundraiser a more playful event and creating a time capsule that we can always open up and peek inside to see the past.
There's no doubt that Mike and Erin were the perfect photographers for our wedding, but it turned out many of the most memorable photos from the day weren't taken by them at all! The photobooth provided a fun and unique space for kids, parents, friends, and my drunk uncle to share in the excitement. We avoided props and couldn't believe how creative everyone was, joining groups and families together in a way that could have never happened if we had tried.
Neither of us had had professional photos taken before so we were both pretty nervous when we started. We weren’t interested in traditional prom-like, waist-holding, staring-longingly-into-each-others’-eyes type photos, but we didn’t know how to act naturally in front of the camera. Without the guidance of E + M, our pictures would have all been forced smiles and jazz hands. Instead, they made us feel at ease, treated us as family, and encouraged us to be ourselves, resulting in many fantastic shots, including us kissing under a waterfall and laughing while caterpillars crawled across our faces.
