This was my first Celebrity look-a-like senior portrait. Doesn’t she look just like Kristen Stewart from the Twilight series? What a fun and creative session! We headed to some special locations in Bethel CT and captured the grunge, artsy, rock star feel we were going for. I always try and get to know my seniors before their sessions so we can create a session that fits their style and taste. It creates such a naturally comfortable environment, one where we both feel free to be as creative as possible. My senior told me she felt like a complete rock star which is the best compliment I could get as an artist. Hair and Makeup artistry was provided by Sara Keo.
This couple is very special to us here at Karie Peterson Photography! I was thrilled when I heard that Mike proposed! I couldn’t get on the phone fast enough once that infamous ring shot was posted to Facebook. I have known the Bride-to-be my whole life and of course knew the story of how this couple met, so we thought it would be hilarious to re-in act that fateful night and give Famous Pizza in Bethel, CT a little shout out too! The story goes, that one late Summer evening a group of friends were hanging out and here comes Lissa with her hot Famous Pizza’s. She goes to her hot rod of a Civic turns up Country music and sits on the roof of her car and starts chowing down. Now to everyone else there… that’s normal.. That’s just Lissa being Lissa but not to Mike… oh no… just as she had stolen his pepperoni right from off his pizza…she also made it off with his heart that night too. I can not wait to attend there wedding next year! It’s going to be filled with love, laughter… and hopefully… some Famous Pizza J
