How do you manage a media magnet couple in the same issue of a magazine? How do you handle their percentages? Do you get more for the girl (out of simple, elementary respect) or for the guy?

I also added two interviews, one with Katie and one with Tom, Screen Test dialogues for T Magazine. I’m sure you have you mind set about these pictures and interviews, about this couple. And even if you don’t, this article will help you out! Shall we talk some Katie and Tom? (click thumbnails to see larger images) (via tmagazine)
