My Wife As My Childhood Crushes

It’s good to married.

For our one year anniversary my wife surprised me with a book that includes her recreating a few iconic shots from some of my favorite childhood crushes.

Blending blasts from the past, like Britney Spears and Danielle Fischel, with my love of photography was a surefire way to create the absolute perfect gift. I was inspired when I saw Instagram friends of ours do a similar shoot.

I can’t share all of these because well, some of them are for my eyes only, but I had to share some of the age appropriate ones because this idea is just too cool.

If you can convince your significant other to do this, share the photos with the hashtag #MyWifeAsMyChildHoodCrushes — we’d love to see them.

Look #1 — “Topanga from Boy Meets World” aka Danielle Fischel on a photo shoot with Maxim.

When we aren’t playing dress up and doing fun side projects, you can find us photographing weddings as the photography duo, Cuckoo’s Nest West and on Instagram @h3J2 and @cuckookitchn.

Thanks to @TheMelideos for the original idea and Brent Chase for the photos.
