Mario contacted me on Facebook and schedule his shooting for 13 April.
They are from South Africa. They got married in February and were on honeymoon in this hotel that I know very well.
It was a very pleasant shooting. They were committed and motivated. We started on the beach and shot in different places in the Resort yard and compounds and did our last photos in the lobby while it was getting dark.
While I was setting up my laptop to start editing their pictures (delivering the edited pictures on the same day), it started to rain, and while speaking to them and looking outside I imagined what a beautiful picture it would be having them under a white umbrella with a backlight under the rain. It was not yet completely dark so it was the perfect timing. I ran to one of the Wedding Coordinators and ask to get a white umbrella. The umbrellas of the hotel are usually brown (the color code of the resort). But she knew there was a white one somewhere and found it just a few minutes later.
I placed them in front of the swimming pool under the umbrella and put a flash behind and shot some of my best moody shots as at today.
It took me about 3 hours to complete editing and the couple came to join me and my wife. They looked at the pictures with woaoww and amazement and we started to chat until late. They are big fans of dogs. Wonderful couple and according to my wife, one of the best shooting session we had.
