Fabulous Location; Pre-Wedding Shoot!

There are times when I just love editing photos. When opening each photo, is as if I were opening a Christmas present.

Lipton loves to do pre-wedding shoots. Finding a location that’s new and fresh is always a challenge. Getting the lighting right is another challenge. Hoping the couple wears a great set of outfits that compliment each other is also something to think about. And then, there’s the couple themselves – hoping they respond to the camera. Lipton’s a pro at drawing out the couple and so I’m confident that any shoot he does goes well. It’s always fun to see what he’s captured, whether it’s at the beach, in the midst of antiques, or in a park-like setting.

One of the good things about a pre-wedding shoot is that the couple becomes used to the camera. I once had a bride who clucked her tongue and then looked away every time I went to take a photo of her. I had to quickly get her comfortable in front of the lens and break her of that habit. Others blink constantly and that’s a fun one to work through. It’s a challenge, but that’s what makes our work interesting.

Here are some photos of Taniya and Dilshan’s pre-wedding shoot, taken in our new secret location. This couple was definitely not shy in front of the lens. Lipton and the couple had fun at the shoot and I had fun editing the photos!
