Just after we had done the normal getting ready shots, the groom lead us through this awesome building and pointed out how cool the kitchen was with all the brass pots and pans hanging about. We completely missed this room when doing our usual location scout as it was behind a closed, locked door and we aren’t ones to just intrude.
That being said, we totally wanted to grab a few shots with him in the room as we still had a bit of time to kill. We told him to go in so long, poor himself a bit of gin/whiskey (can’t remember) and hang out while we do our quick location scout test.
While chilling, and sipping away at his drink – we grabbed this frame. Nothing was said to him. He just naturally lent on the kitchen counter and waited for us to do our thing. It’s a cool moment as it also shows the ‘calm before the storm’. Sometimes these little unplanned moments are just too awesome to ignore and can really help build the story.
