What was it like stepping into the shoes of Gomez Addams for the photoshoot? Any memorable moments from behind the scenes?
Stepping into the shoes of Gomez Adams came natural for me, for I spend my life with Laura quite in the same manner with love and admiration and absolute devotion.
As far as any particular moments they were plenty. One moment in particular was when I had to scurry from end to end of the mansion and open doors to let the smoke out from the fog machine.

The Addams family is known for their unique and dark sense of humor. Did you and Laura find yourselves adopting any of their quirks while in character?
In or out of character the humor runs dark with us. Lol. Most of the quirks adopted were only enhancements of the romance and playfulness we already share.
In the world of the Addams family, eccentricity is celebrated. How do you both embrace your own quirks and eccentricities in your relationship?
As for me it comes with admiration towards her individuality. As for Laura, she pokes fun at my pronunciation of certain words since I was raised in Switzerland a few years during my childhood.
Tell us about any hobbies or interests you and Laura share outside of the Addams family theme. What brings you both joy in your free time?
The things that bring us both joy and our free time are: cooking, cleaning, home improvements, art and photography.
Gomez and Morticia have a legendary love story, what are some elements of their relationship that you admire or relate to in your own marriage?
I believe this was answered in my first question as it is the love, admiration and absolute devotion, but maybe it’s the many kisses on the arm or the gazing into each other’s eyes. The way they seem to be open with each other’s feelings with pure honesty.
As a couple, how do you keep the romance alive, especially in a world filled with spooky and mysterious adventures like the Addams family?
Spontaneity. Together we always try new themes and techniques with our photography and art and that helps us grow as well as solidify our bond as a couple.

What advice would you give to other couples looking to have more fun and creativity in their relationship, especially during themed photoshoots or events?

The Addams family is known for their timeless style. How did you both approach capturing their iconic look and feel for the photoshoot?
In order to capture the iconic look of Morticia and Gomez, Laura and I studied the makeup and clothing. We rewatched the Addams Family movie with Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston. I also grew out a mustache.
