Between battling snow storms during our last session in Chicago and enduring scorching Miami heat this time around, it feels as though we’re working towards a degree in “extreme weather photography”. But one thing for sure: Miami is hot in more ways than one. The beaches, the iconic Ocean Drive strip with bright neon lights, the exotic buildings… all are up for grabs as perfect photo locations. Throw in a hot, photogenic couple like Meri and Iwan who are so adventurous and creative – and we’re scratching our heads choosing a few favorites for this blog. There were just too many beautiful photos!
Just a little “behind-the-scene” story: while we were at the beach, paparazzi was all around us. Apparently, Tom Cruise was there shooting for his latest flick (could it be Mission Impossible 4?) and supposedly Katie Holmes and beautiful Suri Cruise were there, too!
Interesting fact: the area where Meri and Iwan lives is appropriately named Hollywood (Florida, of course). We think it makes sense since Miami does seem to have a strong tie with Holywood, judging from the many celebrity homes and landmarks used as backdrops for blockbuster movies (Fast Five, anyone?)
By the way, there is a fun “consequence” of looking absolutely gorgeous while having two photographers snapping your pics. During our session, more than a dozen strangers stopped by and asked if Meri and Iwan were models and which magazine their photos will appear in. Some even took the liberty of snapping a few pictures of them from near and afar.
Guess we could (and should) have tried to stop them. But, seriously, who could blame these strangers for being so “enmused” by this beautiful couple? :)
