This image is a composite. Earlier I had slowed my shutter down to get the funky looking lights. I love how the shape is like an eye and right at the center are my awesome couple.
This was the room they'd had their wedding dinner in earlier. I had this idea in my mind when I saw the door and glad it worked out beautifully, so cool!
This image took 3 weddings in the making. I was shooting a lot at Sandos Caracol at the time and always loved the lighting at the restaurant but never actually got the chance to try this as it was usually packed with people. We had finished a couple of portraits a couple of minutes before and on our way to the reception and I just knew I had to try it one more time. But this time I would go all in. I actually told a family of 8 that were having dinner just in front of where the couple is standing to get out of the way and they ended up helping me to move the table out of the way hahaha. They were so excited and helpful that I just had to show them the finished image. It's one of my favorite images and probably the one that inspired me to keep trusting my gut.
Rob and I met at work 5 years ago. We both worked in the hotel industry and were on the same team. Our team was very close and we would all hang out outside of work. Rob and I became friends and a few months after working together we realize there was more to us than just a friendship.
Since both of us worked in hotels when planning our wedding we wanted to have a very untraditional wedding venue, not your standard banquet hall. We loved the vintage and loft style of Salvage One. We know people would remember this venue because it was so unique. Salvage One offered so many amazing picture locations and such beautiful antique items that are for sale which was so fun for our guests to look around.
Salvage One was the best decision we made and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun unique space.
This was taken on a pre-wedding session with Elodie & Hadrien in the Parc des Buttes de Chaumont in Paris a week before their wedding. Towards the end of the shoot, we were walking around looking for another spot. I knew I had found it when I saw the beautiful sun shine coming through the leaves in a little passage. Positioning the couple between me and the sun, I shot into it to get some flare and I love how it worked for this image. :)
