For many couples traveling over from China they have a bucket list of places that they must be photographed at. For these couples it is not about enjoying the moment as it is about proving that they were there. Thankfully I have amazing couples like Sona & Danny who want to connect to their new environs and enjoy the moment in a way that few experience: in an artistic & creative way.
On that Autumn day they were so relaxed, friendly and easy going as we walked around exploring and capturing them. They had already seen a collection of my more artistic portraits and had requested that I create some for them. As every couple is unique I always try to do something new for them.
When we were exploring the castle I knew that I was going to take them to a vantage point high above where they could sit and enjoy the view down of Mala Strana below. But as we were walking over I looked up and this frame came together in my head. The light was just perfect. When I pointed this out to them, they smiled and walked up.
If you are looking for a more creative and artistic style of pre weddings as opposed to being posed all day, we would love to speak with you. As every couple is unique we strive to create unique collections that are especially suited to your style and taste. Interested in knowing more?

This image was captured using a 70-200 2.8 lens at its maximum length. By compressing the background and the foreground you can really see Sona & Danny as they are nearly silhouetted against the sunlight. The additional color burst was added in post to create more red to suit the brides dress. As these two are from China - having such a strong red presence is important in their imagery. Red represents fire and is the most popular color in China. It is also the national color representing happiness, beauty, vitality, good luck, success and good fortune.
