Engagement photoshoot on the beach In Wales
I met Aaron and Regina long before their wedding. However, before the wedding should be an engagement photoshoot yet. We originally planned to hold the session in Rossili Bay in South Wales. Finally, we chose Dunraven Bay, a bit closer to Cardiff.
Before each photoshoot and each wedding photograph, I am a little stressed. After a while, this state passes. My models also have a little stress before the shoot. It was no differences in this case. We went over some details, I showed Aaron and Regina some of my favourite photos from similar shoots… And it started! They forgot what nerves and stage fright are and started going wild on the beach and I could barely keep up with them.
It got dangerous when we got in the water. I had to be very careful with the camera. But the photos I took were worth the risk.
Result of our beach engagement photoshoot
I used above the term “models”. Therefore they’re models because I photograph them. Sometimes I give them little tips to make them look better in the photo. Generally, I try not to interfere and capture the existing reality. Hence my goal is always to get natural frames. I think these are the most interesting and true. See, e.g. two black and white photos in the gallery. I can’t imagine how I could direct such shots. I am especially pleased with these photos. However, Aaron and Regina are largely responsible for their creation during our Wales beach engagement photoshoot. To be honest, I was surprised by their spontaneity and laid-back nature. Evidently, that was a side effect of drinking an engagement bottle of wine.
I am happy with the photos I took. My “models” are happy as well and their satisfaction is very important to me.
