Story

A week after the wedding, Marta & Paweł drove almost 6 hours by car from the north to the south of Poland, to the breathtaking location of Zloty Jar. We’ve spent some incredible time discovering the moody and foggy surroundings of the Golden Mountains. We wanted to make the photoshoot worth traveling this far for, so we began with getting ready in one of the rooms of Złoty Jar. The couple got quite emotional and nostalgic while dressing up in the same clothes as on their wedding day, so we were in the best mood to create romantic photographs that we love.

“Could you just stand over here, facing each other, and now if you could just lean like for a big Hollywood kiss but try NOT to kiss. Great, now keep it like that for a while, but you can keep your hands moving. Awesome!”

Composition

Center FramedClose UpIntimate Framing

What we pay close attention to while composing the frame is to shoot from slightly below the focus point, so the camera is at the same height as the subject. If its eyes – go below eyes, if lips – below lips. You get the idea.

Photographer Poland Canon 5d Mark IV Canon 85 mm 1.4
We had been walking past each other for a year, without really paying attention… It took a choir competition and a trip to the magnificent Riva del Garda where one gorgeous evening we went for a stroll in united mission to find somewhere to eat. That was the moment that changed everything in us and around us – we fell in love. It was 2013 and we have been walking together since. Today, we live a life filled with classical music, pleasures of great comfort food that we shamelessly enjoy from time to time and a good movie on a Friday night. We cannot imagine our home without cats.
