The story behind the image

Show more
After so long without taking pictures, it felt so good to shoot this wedding! Coming back from a time without anything, this event brought so much joy to our days. It was great to shoot in a new place that we didn’t know, and we really enjoyed the place while doing our location scouting and trying to come up with different things that reminded us of the couple. This photo was really cool because we really like lines and shapes in the shot, and with this photo, we managed to do a little bit of a mixture between chaos (nature) and geometric shapes.

We came up with the idea to use our cellphone as a sort of “mirror” to create symmetry with the frame of the roof. It was a fun little idea we had and it worked out really well in the end. Even if it was a bit tricky to find the balance and angle of the phone.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

We simply asked the couple to go back to where the ceremony was and face each other, we asked them to remember how important the day was and we asked them to try to tell each other what they felt when they were there getting married.

What did you say?

Guys, stay there at the place where you got married, and we want you to remember what you felt when you were exchanging your vows and rings.

This place has really interesting architecture, and we wanted to do something different than just take a wide image. We always like to use a cell phone at times to make a reflection and try to create something different to bring more strength to the photo. In order for the image to still be true to the geometric feel we were going for, we placed our couple in the middle of the frame underneath all the arches so we could find symmetry.

Describe how you spoke to your subject(s)

As we were with the 24mm and far away from the couple, we put the aperture at 2.8 and we didn’t worry too much about the couple being focused. We wanted to show the composition more. We moved our single focus point over the couple as to ensure that they were focused.

Light & Weather

As it was quite cloudy and soon after that it started to rain, the light was very diffused, so it ended up not having much influence on the photo. This meant we could easily place our couple anywhere and still have really easy light to work with.

Editing Workflow

How did you edit this image?

In this photo, we simply used our preset and lightened it up a little more to be able to brighten the front of the photo, but without losing the information in the background. We kept everything quite simple with the edits as we didn’t want to take away too much attention from the already very ‘wow’ image. Sometimes an image doesn’t take very much effort to edit; and just like seasoning your food – it should be done little by little until you’re happy with it.

Our main mission in taking the photos on a couple’s day is to get something different and unique, so we didn’t want another photo just showing the architecture in a way that is often seen. We often check out the location’s instagram account in advance.

we took the opportunity to try different things and at that moment, the cell phone helped a lot to be able to do something different and remarkable.

It’s always nice to do new things in different places, and it’s always good to explore the places and possibilities for us to do things that get a little out of the initial approach. Always aim to better your photos and even if trying something new doesn’t work out, you will at least learn what went wrong so you can do it better next time.
