Engaged in Colour: Lemon-Lime Love

I have a cool little treat for you today – I randomly found this gold nugget of fantastic colour use incorporated in this engagement session by Micah Williams Photography.

Big thanks to Micah (Micah Williams Photography on facebook) and PhotoBiz (www.photobiz.com). I found Micah on PhotoBiz’s Facebook fan page (facebook.com/photobiz) randomly last week after seeing this photo (below) appear on their wall. This one was my main inspiration. LOVE her yellow shoes, with his green shirt and of course the awesome wall of coloured glass behind them.

Per my suggestion and introduction to our wonderful community in colour, Micah just recently joined us on COLOURlovers too (micahrae224). So be a colour-buddy and drop her a hello!

“Hey everyone! My name is Micah Williams and my true passion in life is photography – right now I still have a ‘real’ job being a teacher during the school year being a rock star to 25 kids, but when I’m not teaching, my camera is in my hand and I’m helping people hold onto those special memories in timeless photographs. I love to be artistic, colourful, and unique when shooting.” – from Micah’s profile

What I loved about this engagement session was what the couple wore in accordance to the location – not on purpose. Micah literally tells us what kind of personality this couple has. They are so adorable and I can tell they love colour too!

I asked Micah if she or the couple chose the location, which was in St. Louis down by the riverfront. She said that she likes to get to know the couple a little and then decided on the location based on the fact that they liked the cobblestone.

They certainly got more than cool cobblestone for their shoot. Check out how dramatic the lemon and lime are in context to the surroundings. Their colours aren’t overbearing either.

Her shirt and jeans compliment the “Blue Jean” walls with the charcoal doors. It works so nicely and subtly sitting atop the eroding cement.  The fiance’s pants work with the accent blue in the “Blue Jean” wall as well.

Even with the dramatic red here, the subtle lemon and lime works great!

I love graffiti used in photography. It’s just something about the wild, unruly colours with people poised in front of it, who would never do such a thing. It just cracks me up. This image struck me as hilarious, especially using it in an engagement shot. Hopefully I haven’t offended anyone with this one, let me know and I can remove it.

Lastly, some trailing graffiti shots…

Since I’m already name/link dropping here (in regards to the top of this post), I’d like to take a second to rate www.photobiz.com as a very exceptional resource for photographers. I recently helped a friend/client get set up with them for a website template, client proofing and cart option. Their services are professional, punctual (excellent customer support) and definitely affordable for any budget. As a web designer myself, I would instantly suggest using them rather than paying a bloated amount for custom coding your own. With all the functions a photographer needs in order to have a great website, it’s the ticket!

If you’ve been reading my posts, you know I like to support businesses and services where I can. Neither PhotoBiz.com or Micah Williams Photography pay me or COLOURlovers to vouch for their services. I just love to support great services because they are so far and few between. :)
