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.
You can usually find
SO MANY flowers on set.
There are hair and make-up touch ups happening all day. Men-you’re not exempt!
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!
Fun pics with the crew usually happen at some point in the day.
And, of course, the very important “which picture should I share on social media??” dilemma.
Here’s a little bit of that whimsy I mentioned earlier. LOTS of balloons and flowers!
A bit of direction is shared with crew and models.
An occasional photobomb.
Sometimes poppers don't pop! And we’ve got to
read the instructions get creative!
Occasionally, photographers get in front of the camera- that’s really weird for us! After a few giggles, Gill rocked it!
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!
