one of the the things i appreciate most about shooting with claud and chris is the dynamism. We’ve come to a point where we understand each other and appreciate each others quirks as well as respect each other professionally. It’s really great to be able to bounce an idea off a person and they take it to the next level and the next person takes it to the NEXT level whereas if i were shooting alone the creative juices would stop a lot earlier. I think what i’m trying to say is that the rate of learning ends up being higher/quicker because throughout the day we’re constantly talking and sharing.
such a dear couple. I met vinci and isaac last year through a friend and i was touched by just how much they were dedicated to each other and to serving God. So when i found out early this year she was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer i was soooooo sad! Thankfully they caught it at an early stage and she was able to go through the necessary treatments. I saw such a brave woman in her and also look up to isaac for being such a constant support to her through the difficult times. When a couple goes through something like this when they say their vows “…through sickness and in health” it really hits a chord. There were many tears during the ceremony. That’s true love :D
here’s another wedding i shot with claudia. what was special about this wedding was that i got to finally shoot at graydon manor. I kept hearing so much about it from claud and now i understand why. It’s beautiful. The manor feels authentic and that’s whats awesome about it because there are a lot of venues out there that try and duplicate that old manor feeling but they often fail miserably. sandra and ade are a cool couple…they both ride motorcycles!!! sooo cool!!!
As i continue to shoot weddings I’ve realized how much I looooove to arrange a set. I still enjoy capturing those candid moments but i also LOOOOVE to bring in the more stylized fashiony side into my photographs.
just wanted to share a photo from a family shoot i did couple weeks ago. :)
don’t they look dignified?
i’m a tad behind with the blogging so now i’m blogging about a couple who are already married keke s’ok though i just wanted to share some photos with you. Susan and i attended the same church…now bernard has stolen her from us booo we’re sad to see her leave but happy for her at the same time. As a couple susan and bernard are SUPER SWEET! like you’ll get a cavity or barf…in a good way :P
dom and rog are REALLY sweet….they’re also super tall! haha i felt like i was working with a couple of models cause they’re SO TALL!
i guess that was one of the technical challenges. when shooting. I had to keep that in mind and not shoot them with my camera angled up but rather stepping up onto something to match my eye level to theirs. Another challenge is keeping a mental tab on the shots I have. I always want to give my bride and grooms the best and memorable shots…i do the classical and traditional as well as get more creative.
last month i tagged along with claud to shoot heather and andrews wedding. I’m sorta catching up with the blogging so here i go!!!
shooting with claud is always such an honor and so much fun. There are certain things now that i make sure I get as well as make an effort to remind claud to cover i.e. the ring shot!
i had so much fun shooting with ann and mike it was fantastic to get away from the typical locations and venture somewhere new. It keeps me inspired and excited to shoot. I didn’t really realize this until recently although this was told to me by my mentor. Shooting somewhere new also means scouting the location to ensure that the shoot runs smoothly. The best way to do this is to pick 3 to 5 locations or sets and with each of those locations you can arrange your couples in numerous ways. I usually try and pick 3 definite sets.
