meet leigh + scott. this amazing couple is bound together by love, creativity, and laughter. a few weeks ago i had the opportunity to meet up with them in downtown philadelphia to celebrate their 8th wedding anniversary (woohoo!) with a fun, impromtu photo session!
the entire shoot was so wonderfully serendipitous – leigh is the genius behind LL2B – the fabulous + renowned maker of all sorts of goodies, most notably these custom lip balms! she contacted me a few days prior to the session to inquire about a shoot and see if i’d be in the philly are anytime soon. i was already planning on heading up on the 19th for two engagement sessions and was excited to squeeze her in – especially when i found out that the 19th was their actual anniversary date! so perfect!
in addition to LL2B, leigh + scott have a sweet studio + exhibition space in the city – basekamp – that showcases large scale collaborative projects by contemporary artists. we met at the studio and then walked around town, weaving in and out of parks, courtyards, and the oldest cemetery i’ve ever seen. we made our way back to basekamp and did a few shots on the roof and inside of the studio. i got to learn about their newest project and was absolutely fascinated by the projects they work on! if i ever hesitate to refer to myself as an “artist” it is because of tremendously talented and creative people like leigh + scott. to me, they are the coolest kind of artists – using visual and philosophical methods to explore dynamic sociological issues and truly living a life entrenched and influenced by art, creativity and knowledge. i really enjoyed spending the morning with these two and can’t wait to visit them again soon.
