Mingle with Engle – Anna and Spencer

Anna and Spencer, two of our wonderful community members, came up with the sweetest idea for the Mingle with Engle, a video version! They recently painted a wall in their house to use as a video backdrop and wanted to test it out. They interviewed each other and didn’t look at the Mingle questions until they were filming. The video is just under 30 minutes so my advice is to sit back, grab some good wine, hot tea, or a fun photographer friend and enjoy!!! p.s. I am always looking for photographers to interview so please email blog@pictage.com if you’re interested. Make sure to leave a comment or re-tweet this interview!
