Story

This photo was taken during a paid photoshoot. The couple saw the photos from our indoor workshops and wanted photos at the same location. This location is perfect if you like playing with light. It was the couple’s first couple shoot too, so that was exciting for everyone. I advised the couple about clothing and colors and how that plays a big role in the overall feel of the images. They stuck to wearing something that matched the color of the location.

The challenge was to create an atmosphere in which the couple could let themselves go and be completely at ease. I saw the light on the floor and wanted to include it in the shoot.

Don’t be afraid of direct sunlight. Mood can be created by simply asking the couple to strike an intimate pose and close their eyes. You can create beautiful light-shadow games with strong contrasts with direct sunlight and a closed aperture.

Hi, I’m Kathrin, I’m not very good at telling stories. I prefer to let pictures speak. There are pictures of pretty much every situation in my life. Even of the most embarrassing haircut I ever had to wear on my head. And I think that’s the most beautiful thing about photography.
