Story

Sometimes the best shots happen right at the very end. Perhaps it’s the fact that the couple got used to us and the way we worked, perhaps it was that this was an after-wedding shoot where the couple didn’t have to stress about their day or their guests or, it could be a whole bunch of other factors. but in this case, some of our favourite shots we took happened right at the very end.

This shot was the very last shot we could take before our cameras simply couldn’t shoot any more due to the low light. It was a real gentle moment between the two and it happened almost without us having too much direction. Anyways – the biggest thing we want to bring out here is to just keep shooting. Shoot until you literally can’t shoot anymore because you might just have your favourite shots only at the finish line.

Melli & Shayne

Photographer Germany Canon 5D Mark IV Canon 50mm f/1.2 L
We are Melli & Shayne, a couple coming from vastly different worlds but have been inseparable ever since we met in Zanzibar. We have been passionately capturing love stories since 2014 and have loved every step of the way. We love to meet fellow photographers, to share our knowledge amongst a bottle (or two) of wine and support every one wherever we can.
