Channeling Irving Penn - Alena + Akarsh

These two are some of my favorite people on the planet!!  We met in Atlanta Georgia and its been a fun journey to where we are now.  They were visiting for the weekend and were kind enough to spend some time with my husband and I.  We dropped by the studio to do some Irving Penn styled couples portraits, and I LOVE how they turned out.  Akarsh keeps the images fresh and real while Alena's unique vogue look keeps the viewer engaged.  

They were so willing to do all the unusual poses and positions I requested of them.  I loved watching them try new things and goof around in between shots.  They would laugh at each other and then suddenly turn stoic for the shot.  Attempting to emulate the great Irving Penn was definitely a challenge and pushed me outside my comfort zone, but I'm happy with how they turned out and I hope you enjoy!!
