Meet: Julia & Mike

When Julia & Mike sent us their "Get to Know You" sheet, one theme instantly jumped off the page at us. Actually, it jumped off the page, slapped us a few times, and shouted "HELLOOOOO." But you get the idea. Under the question, "What do you think is unique about you as a couple," these guys put that they love to share equally in the chores of taking care of their brand new house...everything from the gardening to the vacuuming. So we thought, "Hey, we're down with equality." And what could possibly stand for equality more than a 1950s take on housework? Right?! Makes sense to me!

Okay, so we put a slightly modern twist on it to bring it into SOMETIME this century, but seriously how fun is this theme?? And Julia & Mike totally ROCKED it!! They went out and hunted down all the outfits you see to get totally in character. I LOVE it!!

Meet: Julia & Mike
Their theme: A five page spread for the 1952 Home & Garden Summer Issue

















Of course, we also got to spend some time with these guys just being their adorable selves (rather than the 1950s version of themselves). From the first second we started shooting, these guys were just total naturals! It was so cool to watch how comfortable and sweet they are with each other.




One of their other favorite activities is chillin with Andy the Superdog! Doesn't his little scarf look like a cape??


Julia & Mike, we had such a blast hanging out with you! You are total rockstars and you make our job wayyyy too easy! We can't wait to see what all you come up with for the wedding!
