A loom curated shoot – the charcoal studio
To say that photographing this session was an absolute dream would be a massive understatement. Ginny Au, stylist and owner of Loom Curated carefully developed the concept alongside Tony and Hannah in order to capture an authentic representation of their relationship in an environment that was comfortable, relaxed, and intimate.
From Ginny herself
“Before the shoot took place, I provided the couple with a storyline and together we blocked the movements, then I left the couple to find their own rhythm… We turned the space into a studio and applied the same principles, restricting the direction and pushing to use the cameras as a tool to preserve the moments as they naturally progress. This Loom philosophy is always an emotional journey for me and in some cases the photographers themselves. Perhaps this is why I strive to encourage this form of photography, to evoke an emotion from the photographer allows them to become actively invested in what they are shooting. The end result is a beautiful glimpse into the world of an artist in her studio surrounded by the adoration of her husband.”
