When is the best time for the shoot?
For lifestyle shoot we will choose the most flattering time, early in the evening 2 hours before the sunset. But as for wedding portrait, when the timeline doesn’t allow for early evening shoot, we will go to a place with open shadow. Or if timing is important for you, we can work together for your wedding day timeline.
Where the shoot will take place?
I will always let you choose your own location. Think of place that is special to you, a place where you feel comfortable. Don’t worry if you think the place is not beautiful. Anywhere is OK for me as long as the light is pretty; anything will look good in pictures. And also out of the box location will make your photos look unique thus completely you.
Why do we need to do the engagement shoot?
I feel that an engagement shoot is like a dry run for your wedding portrait. You can get used to being in front of the camera. Also a great idea is to use the pictures for your save the date card, invitation card or for properties to personalize your wedding venue. It wouldn’t hurt as well to have casual portraits of the two of you. Oh it is also a great reason for us to hang out and know each other more.
What clothes should we wear on the shoot?
I love colours for photos. Think also about coordinating textures, patterns and styles of clothes. Avoid being too matchy with each other, instead go with complimenting colours. Properties that make you, you is always welcome, as well as vintage cameras, flowers, toys. Or do you want to make a themed shoot? I’m open for it. And the most important thing is to dress as comfortable as possible and be yourself.
Do you edit your photos?
All photos will be edited according to my style, the contrast, colours, cropping, sharpening. But I wouldn’t take or add in anything in the photo. I want the photo to look as natural as possible from the real scene.
Do we need to give meals on the wedding day?
A wedding can be a long day and although we don’t expect sit-down meal (although when it happens, we highly appreciate it). We would be really happy if we can nick some of your party food now and then so we can be fresh and alert in taking your photos. 😉
