ONE + ONE = 4? When Ashley, Jeff, Esther and Jason approached us to shoot their engagement session, we were stoked. When they asked that we shoot it on the same day at the same time, we accepted the challenge. Oh and did we mention Jeff and Jason are IDENTICAL twins. Double E-sessions were harder than I thought… double the ideas and half the time! It was super windy the day of the shoot and our first location ended up being a “bust” so with props in tow (picture 4 beach cruisers strapped to a mini van driving at warp speed down the freeway) we all caravanned over to the Irvine Fields, it couldn’t have been a more AWESOME “plan B”. We swapped every 10 minutes between couples (thank you to Sarah Rico who was a blessing to have help me on the shoot). It feels like two different shoots although we wanted to get the best shots for both… Regardless of the challenge it really was a blast. I’m still laughing about this skipping double mint shot. Only wish we had more time to do the other 5 ideas we had! When we meet with couples, we always ask them to tell us a little bit about their “story”. We have such RAD clients that it’s always super awesome to hear how they met and ultimately brought them to an epic Burnt Exposure shoot.
In Ashley’s words (and we tend to agree), as identical twins it was only fitting that Jeff and Jason would each find true love just two months apart. Esther and Ashley were already friends when Esther and Jason began dating so when Ashley started dating Jeff, it gave new meaning to the word double dates and before long they became the self proclaimed “Quad.”
Jeff and Jason are both musicians, so when it came time to propose they knew they not only had to do it at the same time but it had to be nothing short of amazing (as if a twin proposal wasn’t epic enough…clearly they are over achievers)! So how does one…err we mean TWO go about pulling off the proposal of the century? Why during a performance in front of 3,000 young single adults at a church conference in Arizona State University’s Gammage Auditorium OFCOURSE! They were slotted to play on Saturday night after Mitt and Ann Romney would address the attendees, and would be followed by performances from Brooke White, of American Idol Fame, and Youtube star Alex Boye. Talk about PRESSURE! Needless to say, they pulled it off, even with Ashley running things behind the scenes! You can check out their RAD proposal that was posted on KSL News in Salt Lake City, UT here or on Jeff and Jason’s youtube channel
We had such an great time shooting these FANTASTIC FOUR skipping, biking, bubble blowing and even frog kissing!
Jeff and Ashley…
Esther and Jason…
Vanity Fair ain’t got NOTHING on these four!
Thanks for coming all the way out from Gilbert, Arizona. We are SUPER EXCITED for your double wedding at the Gilbert Temple next month!
