GN: Who’s idea was it to go with the American Mary theme?
MRP: It was actually both of ours (Queen Curbcheck and I) She had recommended the movie to me after the twisted twins had started to follow her on IG. I was immediately inspired after watching it and had noticed some similarity in looks between the actress Katharine Isabelle and Queen Curbcheck. I think I even text her that night after watching it for the first time and said "We must do an American Mary inspired shoot!" The rest is history.
GN: Tell us a bit about Monochrome Romance Photography and what you do!
MRP: Hmm well Monochrome Romance Photography is me lol. As for what I do I like to create stories and characters through my photography whether that story portrays a dream or a nightmare.
GN: Queen Curbcheck is a total babe! (and Ryan Wreckless was a trooper for being a victim!) What was it like working with them?
MRP: I have known this couple for years and have worked with them on many shoots. They are a great duo to shoot and they make my job as a photographer easy. I love them and the energy they bring to each shoot. Never a dull moment when these two are my models.
GN: Have you set your sights on other movies to recreate in photo form? Are there any others we should check out that you've done?
MRP: I would love to do a tribute to some of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock films in the future. And I'm currently working on doing a female pinhead shoot from the movie Hellraiser which is one of my favorites! But to date American Mary is the first movie tribute shoot I have done.
GN: Give us some links to your social media! Also let us know what you have coming up!
MRP: If interested in see more of my work you can find me on
