When we found out that our couple wanted to do an after wedding shoot in the mountains close by to their wedding venue, we were beyond thrilled. In our minds, we were already planning the perfect location during sunset and coming home with some spectacular images to deliver to them.

But things don’t always work out perfectly. We got a message the morning of the After wedding shoot from our couple letting us know that they couldn’t make it in the afternoon for sunset, and the only time they could come was around midday. Probably one of the worst times to shoot in regards to lighting.

We were lucky to have some scattered clouds which we tried to use as they covered the sun but in the end, we did the best we could given the situation and focused more on creating these moments between our couple than to wait for the perfect light.

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.
