Alex & Zoe – Pre wedding shoot
It is always a good idea to book your pre wedding photo shoot as early as possible, this gives both the couple and photographer time to really get to know each other and work together so that on the wedding day everyone is comfortable and feels confident, this really does make the world of difference and shows through on the photograph. We had a great afternoon and a few of the elements to play around with (Sun & wind), a great combination that could help produce some stunning shots. We started in the studio, this helped my timing a lot as I no where the sun will be in different areas around my home town of Newark ( it always helps to do your homework ) and helped Alex and Zoe chill about the whole concept of being photographed by a professional out side, with people milling around.
It’s great when I get chance to be a little bit creative – I never miss an opportunity to play around with a bit of controlled lens flare, notice also how by turning my subjects with there backs to the sun it eliminates any dark shadows around the eyes and beneath the nose and creates a bright ring of light around Alex’s head, separating him more from the background and a ring of light that follows the contour of Zoe’s face.
Hard to believe that there were people playing around near by – well done guys.
I never stop looking for an opportunity to produce a different image so we made our way back to the studio via an ally way.
