American Horror Story Inspired Engagement Session >
When making plans for their engagement session, Andrea and Ryan thought a bit higher concept for the photographs they wanted to make. Being big fans of American Horror Story, they put themselves in my hands to create something a bit darker and edgier than average.
We decided to take on American Horror Story Season One: Murder House. Rather than literal interpretations we instead made images inspired by that season. We traveled to a sprawling mansion in Danvers, MA that has built into its architecture parts of the now-demolished Danvers State Hospital, which in different times was also named the State Lunatic Hospital at Danvers, the Danvers Lunatic Asylum, and the Danvers State Insane Asylum.
Collaborating on the day were…
