The story behind the image

Show more
This photograph is taken in frames of the editorial I’ve shot for a Bridal shop (Natural Bride Boutique) in Barcelona. In 2020 I found this new passion of mine towards modern and unconventional bridal concepts and fashion. Creating alongside beautiful and inspiring women and empowering others has become the cornerstone of my business and photography. I decided to set up this particular editorial in a field on the top of the hill, where we started off a little before the golden hour and finished at twilight.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

I asked the models to slowly walk a little apart from each other. Usually, when I shoot editorials with professional models, I give them as much freedom to express themselves as possible. So for this shot, they could be walking at different speeds, looking in the camera or somewhere else, etc. All I wanted is to get that “effortless” natural shot of two brides walking in the field wrapped up in the softest blue hour light.

What did you say?

Alright girls, could you now walk past the camera, a little apart from each other i.e. P. please walk slightly more in front and I. will be walking behind you. Feel free to look wherever you want, including the camera, as well as feel free to move your hands, grab the dress, etc.

Tone of Directions



I wanted to keep this shot at a medium distance to get the models’ facial expression + still include the backdrop in the frame. Also, I left more space on the left since they are walking in that direction; and that space allows the viewer to predict where they are going.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

Focusing was very simple; i just moved my focus points on the model that looks in the camera since she was the one who was going to be making the biggest connection with the viewer. Anytime someone looks into your lens, they are looking at the people who view the photograph – and that draws a connection.

Light & Weather

The light for this shot was directly in the blue hour which was incredibly soft and easy to work with. Though it does disappear pretty fast so we had to work quite quickly. Since the light was so soft, it didn’t really matter where we had our models – and in this case, the sun was behind them (to the right of the image), which also happened to give off a nice light on the models face (who looked into the lens).

Editing Workflow

How did you edit this image?

I used my own presets that are not yet out. In this photo, I was after the soft and tender look. I reduced the greens and bumped up the exposure + warmth. I left skin tones light and slightly peachy and, used a small piece of plastic-wrapped on my lens to create that ghostly soft look on the lower part of the image. I also used the “soften skin” brush in LR to smoothen the skin, but always keep its texture natural.

Working with two models at the same time is always quite a challenge as there will surely be many pictures that you’d disregard just because one of them was giving you the feeling you needed and the other was not. :)

Also, artistically directing and preparing an editorial always entails load of background work, such as talking to vendors, finding moods, model casting, etc. This one took up a lot of time as well, but I the result was worth it!

Because of that, I always try to repeat “poses”/actions that we do throughout the shoot at least couple times to make sure I got all the necessary shots.

My advice would be to try an experiment as much as possible. Take things like little plastic covers and place them in front of your lens to create a soft & dreamy look. There are no limits to creativity and you may even discover something so unique that it actually becomes associated with you. Just keep trying.
