A few weeks ago I received a random, and somewhat frantic call from my good buddy Craig Sumsky from Cutting Edge Entertainment .
“Kevin… Dude… I just got off the phone with the couple from the Love of a Lifetime wedding, and I’m going to need your help!”
If you know Craig, or read his blog, you know he always has these crazy half-cocked creative ideas, and although I never know what he’s going to come up with next, I can always count on him for it to be some sort of adventure, and better yet, a great photo opportunity. Whether shooting his staff, traveling to New York City to photograph Rock & Roll legends or simply photographing him doing burnouts in his work vans, it’s always something interesting. I have to admit, I love to work like that.
This time, his idea was just as ingenious as ever, and as I said before, I’m always up for the new and exciting. He explained the concept to me and I was all for it. About six months ago, Craig and Pedro built a Rock Band room over at their DJ studio, and I’ve been telling him ever since how it would make for a great photo shoot. When Craig told me to bring my camera, I knew exactly what he had in mind.
So the meeting was called for 4:00 on Sunday night, and we sat and discussed some wedding plans with Matt and Faye. The conversation went from wedding plans, to celebrities we had all met, to how Matt and Faye had attained somewhat of a celebrity status from all the press they’d been receiving. I’d met the couple before, but this was Craig’s first time making their acquaintance… and as usual he had all of us laughing and having fun in no time.
After the meeting (over sushi), we headed back to Cutting Edge, and Craig’s like “So who wants to be a Beatle?” We jammed out for this photo shoot, and Faye even grabbed my camera and took a few shots as well. Faye said she fancied herself a rock star, and Craig delivered. As you can see from the photos we all had a great time, and I even scored 99% on vocals (Oh yeah baby)!!! It really was a blast.
