Behind the Scenes: Promo Video for soundslikeyellowphotography

It was about this time last year that Gillian and I sat in a coffee shop and dreamed a crazy little dream. A dream full of the sweetest couple, the cutest little bus and a few whimsical touches. After that meeting, Gillian worked hard to bring that dream to life in the form of a promo video. I’m asked quite frequently what goes into a creative photo shoot. Well friends, this one is for you! Here’s a little peek into the fun happening behind the camera.

The day usually starts with gear and light checks. Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0252.jpg

You can usually find SO MANY flowers on set. Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0255.jpg

There are hair and make-up touch ups happening all day. Men-you’re not exempt! Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0254.jpg

Have you ever tried being romantic in front of a large crowd? This real-life couple were amazingly natural throughout the whole day! Such gems! Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0264.jpg

Fun pics with the crew usually happen at some point in the day. Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0256.jpg

And, of course, the very important “which picture should I share on social media??” dilemma. Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0263.jpg

Here’s a little bit of that whimsy I mentioned earlier. LOTS of balloons and flowers! Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0258.jpg

A bit of direction is shared with crew and models. Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0257.jpg

Sometimes poppers don't pop! And we’ve got to read the instructions get creative! Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0253.jpg

Occasionally, photographers get in front of the camera- that’s really weird for us! After a few giggles, Gill rocked it! Toronto Portrait and Wedding Photographer, Alisha Lynn Photography_0261.jpg

There is nothing better then spending the day with the best crew, the most adorable couple and the sweet satisfaction of knowing a group of artists have come together to create something extra special!
