I am so honored to have photographed my fellow photographer friends, Dylan and Marisa! You probably already know them as Boy Girl Beauty World, and Dustin and I are so excited to have them as our own wedding photographers next September! I've known Dylan for some time before they launched their duo business. Dylan and I both regularly second shoot for his sister, Vienna Glenn.
Before settling in their rental home for a short stint, Dylan and Marisa were living up the van life. Now that they're current chapter of recharge back in their hometown is coming to an end, they asked me to document this time for them.
We started the shoot by making coffee. I couldn't say no to a cup myself knowing that Dylan worked as a barista for years ;p
We moved outside to bask in the sun:
We came back in for an intense pingpong match. Marisa and Dylan have a room strictly dedicated to the game! hahaha
Another important asset in their lives is their furry friend, Oscar! Oscar has been in Dylan's family since his father's passing. Dylan and Marisa were more than happy to take a turn caring for him and soaking up his presence while in Hancock.
Dylan and Marisa are both vegan! I think that's such an incredible feat living in Michigan's Upper Peninsula where hunting culture is prevalent and most of us up here have grown up on meat and potato meals. Vegan and vegetarian options are more limited, but it's certainly doable with proper planning and prep. Marisa and Dylan devote time weekly to meal prep, making it an important piece of their life to photograph too:
For the last few frames, I followed Dylan and Marisa down the road to the Keweenaw Co-op with a reusable grocery bag in hand.
Thanks for letting me invade your space, Dylan + Marisa ;)
