We cannot express enough just how much we love doing After Wedding Shoots over cramming in a couple shoot during the wedding day. Of course, we still take a little moment to capture the couple together on their day – but knowing that we have a full session at a location & time of our choosing is just so darn cool.
We scouted a few spots around where we were in Sicily and happened to find this coastline via Google Maps. We explored the area and instantly fell in love with it. Not only did it offer a ‘playground’ for couple photos, but the light was just perfect for where we wanted to take our couple.
Come the day of the after wedding shoot, and everything worked out perfectly. We started off with some wide shots on a dirt road before heading to the cliffs, and while on this road – the sun was still a tad on the high side. However, we chose to use the sun to our advantage.
We purposely backlit our couple as we knew the flare we would capture as well as the wind in the hair would be awesome, and fortunately, it was. It was a very simple shot, but one that could only really happen if our couple was able to truly relax and trust us.
