How did we get here? Well, it’s all about collaboration. Michael and Whitney started out throwing events and parties together. They were the guys you called when you wanted your party thrown right. Naturally, when they were tossed out on their butts by some milquetoast corporate clients, they created Our Labor of Love Productions. That’s right, it was a production company before it was a wedding photography business. Once it became a photography business, though, Michael was no longer involved. Two best friends and collaborators can’t stay out of business together for long, so together they created The Flashdance.
Whitney and Our Labor of Love were photography (Flash) and Michael was the DJ (Dance). Whitney knew that it would be impossible to take good photos of people dancing to terrible music, and Michael made sure that never happened. Today, they have kept to the spirit of the original idea: collaborate with your most talented friends and it will pay off. The question remains: are you going to join in on the fun?
Let's talk a little more about the 'flash' part of Flashdance: Our Labor of Love. They've shot over 1200 weddings, and Whitney has shot over 500, so you know they've got it down. They've been featured on every blog and wedding site and magazine you can think of. We won't name names but... New York Times Magazine. Whitney has changed a tire on a limo, broken up several fights between uncles, and helped many a tipsy best man get home safely. The images speak for themselves.
