So it’s time for the last 6 pages of the editorial shoot for Utah Valley Bride magazine. I hope your week has been good so far? Personally I’ve been spending a total of 5 hours in the dentist chair, and then in pain most of the rest of the time 🙂
Photography is forever a very fun profession, always new things to learn, always room for improvment.
This is my very favorite of the 18 pages, I coached the groom before we shot, did a few practise runs. He was so good at taking direction and having the right expressions. I love the placement and spacing in it, remember with studio flash I cant shoot 9 frames a second, but get one attempt per jump. We only shoot a few because it just worked so well and we got it on one of the first attempts.
One of my favorite things with this image is the luggage. I brought it with me from Norway in a 40ft container when we moved here in 2000. The small brown one by his feet is one I found at a used store that was exactly like the one my GrandPa always used going to work. So it was exciting to find one and get to use it.
As you can see Mary had a good time using this prop.Best of all you really get contact with her eyes even with such a little part of them showing. What a great girl she is.prp
I think the old style pop bottles look good in there. Again I have to compliment Tyler and Mary for their energy and expressions in every shot.
You can tell how Mary enjoy hassling him. I love his nose. This is another shot where I really like the spacing between their upper bodies. I’m very particular about looking around them before I shoot, especially between them. It makes a difference to have the peace and graphich from the fine tuning in the pose..
I sure enjoyed this shoot, usually we have at least 3 different brides and no groom. Working with them the whole time helped us to stay in the zone and to get a theme having the same feel about it from beginning to end.
