If you’ve been reading GWS for awhile now, you know I LOVE great photography. There are lots of different styles out there and I try to share lots of them here so you can get a better idea what type of photography you would like to invest in for your wedding and engagement/anniversary photos. One of my most favorite photographers is Clayton Austin. His style is very distinct: artistic, vintage inspired and extremely passionate. His portrait sessions are always amazing. I don’t think I’ve seen one that hasn’t taken my breath away! Clayton is about to embark on a fun adventure, the Hammers & Strings Tour. Beginning on October 13, he will travel with his beloved piano and photograph couples in love in some of the most breathtaking landscapes. The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Salt Flats and more. And I’m so excited to announce that Clayton found an amazing spot in Malibu and has offered to photograph one lucky couple from Green Wedding Shoes on his tour!! So, for all of you that dream of having AMAZING romantic photos of you and your honey, this is your chance.
You must be available on Sunday, October 24 in Malibu, CA. You must be in love. :) And the fun part…if you read Clayton’s blog you know he is also an amazing writer and storyteller. I love that. I wish I could tell stories like that! Well, we thought it would be fun to play off that idea by having you tell us a song lyric that best describes your relationship as a couple. So, if you are interested in having your photos taken by Clayton and can be in Malibu on Sunday, October 24th, just leave a comment in this post with a single line from a song that best represents your love/relationship. Fun and easy, right? Clayton and I will pick our favorites and then we’ll have you the readers vote for the couple you would like to see Clayton photograph! We will close comments on Sunday Sept 26th at 10pm PST and name the finalists later in the week. Have fun and I can’t wait to read your song lyrics!
