The Photographer: Wes Sumner

Ladies and Gentlemen, we present to you Wes Sumner, amazing photographer and all-around nice guy.

Cath and I were lucky enough to meet up with Wes and his awesome assistant Andy (like that alliteration?) this Sunday afternoon. Wes contacted us about doing a few shots to add some fashion photography to his already incredible portfolio (view here). Don't get us wrong, folks. We do not think of ourselves as models... maybe "real people" models, but even then we are pretty uncomfortable with a camera in our face (this blog has been a growing experience). Yet Wes and Andy made it all so easy and enjoyable I would gladly spend every Sunday afternoon with them, gazing at their photography accoutrements and talking their ears off (Sorry, guys. I usually avoid caffeine for that reason).

Here are a few "behind-the-scene" shots, photographed by yours truly.


The guys hard at work.


Wes, me, Andy and Cath at our photomerged kitchen table.

And here are some results:










Thanks Wes and Andy! We think you guys are the bees' knees.

Gorgeous shots! This looks like such a fun experience. And since I know you have a weakness for the label, I have to ask--is the purple tee by Esperanza? ;)

Mr. Wes and Mr. Andy are extremely talented and they should work for a fancy magazine (if they aren't already). I wish I had connections b/c I'd totally make them take cool pictures.

These photos are so incredibly sharp. I like them a whole lot. =]

I agree, Thursday is definitely pre-weekend mode. I like it more for the fact that there is still time for the weekend to "last" by Friday it already seems over... =[

That's a super cute picture of yall in your closet, and it looks like an amazing closet. And since you're local and judging by your music taste on your profile, I thought I would direct you (or anyone else who's local and reading this!) to my review of Adron, a musician who grew up in Decatur and who is performing a free show at the Star Bar thursday night!
