Shooting weddings with such an in-love couple makes for a great, fun day together. This amazingly relaxed couple were not only very much in-love, they were also not stressed out about anything.
Being blessed with great weather, the day was a breeze, and only filled with great moments from the couple’s side. Being two photographers, Mardee and myself – we were able to cover so many different elements of the day, from all different angles and perspectives, and we were able to give this couple a product that included stunning variety, and covered their day fully, and completely.
Shooting at the lovely venue of Cussonia Crest, towards Hartebeespoortdam, with an amazing opportunity to drive up the mountain where a view awaited over the dam, we were able to get a stunning set of couple images for them, using the ProFoto B1 Location Kit, and the nifty Lume Cube handheld lights.
Weddings are definitely the shoots to get creative with, and to give clients new, and exciting images of the standard things. Shooting through materials, using off-camera flashing, composing subjects in interesting places – all adds up to a unique way of handling a wedding professionally. Having two pro’s work together in such a creative way, added to the success of their images, and we were able to help each other to see, how we would be able to get the most perfect moments, and showcase this special day.
Being avid Fujifilm shooters, and enjoying the mirrorless system; it does sure make it easier to already in-camera see the exposure outcome, and have your thought pattern become used to what the light is doing before shutter is even released, so you can control your effect, with more or less contrast or light added on the fly…
She was an ever-smiling bride, and the groom was only a pleasure to work with, and together – they help add to the success, and the amazing quality of their images.
