What is becoming increasingly popular for brides before their wedding day is to have a portrait session shoot. This can be advantageous in many respects. Primarily it gives her a great opportunity to meet the photographer and familiarise herself with being in front of the lens. It can also give the opportunity to test out lighting, make-up, and locations.
Our shoots will take on an editorial feel. We try to steer away from the typical couple, hand in hand photographs, walking through the streets of Palma. Instead, we find a location and take portable lighting to get the look and feel we desire.
This shoot was for an Australian woman who was getting married on the island of Mallorca. She had asked us to photograph the wedding in a private villa in Deia. Her portrait shoot took place two weeks prior to the wedding shoot. It worked perfectly. We even had a picnic in the mountains after the shoot to really get to know each other. Although not essential, these shoots are so beneficial for the relationship to motor on the wedding day.
Photography shoots like this allow time to create a strong visual impact.Take a look in our Commercial section of the website to view other photography shoots, executed in a similar fashion.
This is an area we enjoy as it allows us to construct a shoot and create photographs… instead of taking photographs. We are allowed to find the locations, choose the props and lighting and create something really special. We believe it will be something to look back upon during one of the best holidays of your lifetime.
It is possible on the wedding day to capture photographs with lighting, after the ceremony. However, with a three hour shoot booked before the wedding, we can really create something special and lasting which you’ll value.
