When I am shooting portrait sessions, I would like clients to experience some sort of transformation. So I like treat them as if they are movie stars. I often give a scenario and I like to see natural actions came spontaneously from them. Well I should sometimes pay attention poses more, but this is my style and I can capture more lively images.
I could eventually put together a slide-show of the engagement session I had in May. Before this engagement session, I had already met Danielle and Simon and I noticed they were so energetic and funny …a lot of laughs. So I wanted to capture not only romantic but also some humorous images, and instantly I felt like making a side-show. Well…I had prepared some scenarios for them but most of their actions are came naturally from the couple without my directions. You can see how lively they are!
At the sunset time, I had a technical issue and my flash light did not work. However, I did not want to give up photographing them in the most beautiful time of the day. So I shot series of silhouette shots. I think the results turned out more natural and moody photos which suit Danielle and Simon, rather than artificial look by a flash light.
Please hit the video below, and change to 1080P and full-screen to enjoy HD video. I am so glad to take the photos of such a happy couple as my first engagement session. Wish their long beautiful life.
