I’ve never pretended to be an artisan. Mike definitely is – he can craft and carpenter, and does all the things that I couldn’t even start. When we got this submission, I had to accept it. These two artisans had some of the coolest engagement photos ever with Kelley Deal Photography. They managed to incorporate whittling, knitting, a loom, and their precious cat in photos that they’ll cherish forever. Their lifestyle engagement session truly showcased their personalities and the photos are sure to be something they’ll cherish forever.
From the photographer:
“Leah and James have been together for more years than I can remember considering how young they both still seem. They’re crafters and creators – Leah works with textiles and James is this awesome master woodworker that carved a spoon in front of me while we chatted. They’ve got a cat – Dennis – and an incredibly old home in Chapel Hill, NC, decorated with everything from a stuffed fox to old typewriters and everything in-between. They’re easily the most at-peace and eclectic couple I’ve ever photographed, and the character of their home and their crafts shows through in their photos.”
