Stage 1 - from idea to image

Fiona and Bill by their nature are short in stature, slim and neat. As you can see from the photo - the skin of the models is very clean, and she has good voluminous hair. All these factors positively contributed to quick preparation for the project. The first step was to find a suitable location. At the end of the week of searches and approvals - we decided to use not a studio, but the premises of Flora HuB, which is rented for thematic events. The interior and the availability of the necessary props corresponded to the expectations of customers. The next part is the selection of the wedding dress for the bride. After the agreed budget limits, I prepared a list of wedding salons where you can rent a dress for the required period. We spent 2 days on a cruise to these salons and in the end Fiona decided to take 2 dresses: one for gathering, second for the photo session. Similar to the selection of dresses - we picked up a suit for Bill. Along the way, we have approved the hairstyles and overall styling. Then we made schedule of the shooting day. In addition to the image - I picked up options for bouquets for the bride, from which the models could make a choice according to their taste and budget.

Preparing for a photo shoot: Time and Place

Since Bill works on weekdays, we approved a day off for a photo shoot, which, in turn, greatly complicated the second part of the project, but more on that later. The weather was sunny, dry and warm, as it should be in the second half of August. The chronology of the shooting took place in two stages: the 1st stage - the shooting of the Love Story in the Flora Hub location, and the 2nd stage - sunset Love Story in the intermountain using the main wedding dress. Based on such an order, a tight timing was formed for all contractors and participants in the organization: makeup artist, florist, decorator, barber and transport. The total project time was 7 hours. Also, in the process was provided lunch. Staying in good shape and active for 7-8 hours is not an easy task.

Shooting day: How it was?

The first part of the gathering took place in the InLight dressing room photo studio - as it was perfectly suited for this purpose, and there was no space for preparing models at the main location. While Bill and Fiona assembled Makeup Artist and Barber in the dressing room, preparation was in full swing at the main location: arranging furniture for those tasks, removing excess decoration and adding the missing. By the end of preparation - Florathe studio was ready, and we headed the whole group there. Makeup artist and Barber accompanied the first part of the photo shoot and were on location. In the studio, large were panoramic windows, the amount of light which can be adjusted with thick curtains. Thanks to this, we set up the optimal light needed to get the loft tone. We also lit candles and Edison's lamps, which filled the exposure with warm yellow light and enhanced the desired atmosphere. In her work she used 2 lenses: 35mm and 85mm, at f2.0 - 4.0, since in some composition she needed sharpness on the whole stage, and not just on the main object. The models themselves worked harmoniously and showed sincere feelings for each other, constantly laughing and smiling. The shooting itself took place in a fun casual atmosphere. At the end of the first stage, we went to Mezhigorye, where we felt in all the advantages of a weekend summer day. For reference: We arrived in Mezhigorye by 19:00, and stood at the checkout for 20 minutes. Another 30 minutes we drove the last 500m to the entrance.

Selection, color correction and retouching

For the entire shooting day, I took about 400 source shots. Having made selection - there was a series from 250-300 photos. The next part was painting (color). At the location of the studio, we initially achieved such shades that I added a bit of saturation in colors and raised dark ones. Then I added a bit of sharpness and applied a general smoothing effect - this brought the skin tone and texture in order on all frames. Next, proceeded to select the best photos for retouching. It was extremely difficult to do, because I could not know which angles were most loved by my clients, but it so coincided that all that I had previously selected was just what they liked. Having made a small plastic of the figure, hiding light defects (yes, all people have them), having cleaned the skin on all parts of the body, we obtained the result that is presented on this page.
