This photograph was taken during an elopement session in the Dolomites (Trentino, Italy). It was shot in natural light as close to the water as we could get, squeezed between the rocks. I love the way the softness and fluidity of the waterfall are mirrored in the bride's dress flowing in the wind, and equally how the dark imposing rock face in the background is mirrored by the grooms' strong stance and appearance.
This photograph was taken in the breathtakingly beautiful Somerley House (UK), specifically in its majestic private art gallery hall. The way the natural light flowed into the space diffused by the large westerly windows and by the unique frosted panels in the ceiling inspired me to create a bridal portrait in motion fit for the room it is in. In my photographs, I am always interested in playing with the extremes of shadows and light much like in an oil painting by Rembrandt. This location inspired me to push these games to the limit and try to capture the feeling of this magical place through the power light and shadow have in setting the mood.
It was early in the morning when the sun was peeking over the trees. We were walking towards the sea after these whole eight months of pandemic (we know, it still continues) for our first pre-wedding with all our gear, feeling the grainy sand that always comforted our feet as we walked across the shore. The tide hit the shore, making the spray of water splash on our feet, making us realize a lot has changed, but a lot remains the same.
