Based on my experience and the feedback I received from the couples over the years, I wanted to finish this Château Le Parc wedding album with a beautiful photograph.
One of my secrets is to achieve a variety of shots combining a daylight, a sunset and a night look. In order to maximize my chances of delivering good images, during my first consultation with the couple, I highly recommend them that I review the timeline and give them feedback.
At night, I always look for that magnificent shot that will allow me to close the wedding album. During this wedding day the couple was so involved that they didn't have a chance to catch their breath. As such, during the reception when I asked them to come out for a quick night photo shoot they politely decline. That happens sometimes because the couple, concerned that their guests will leave, do not want to go around the building to take those images.
I knew that my story doesn't have a great ending so I looked for candid moments that would allow me to create a beautiful final wedding album spread. I was lucky enough when during the parents' speeches the groom kiss the bride. The flower wall behind them constitutes the perfect backdrop for this photograph. Here, you can see the bride and groom kissing passionately in the love between them is apparent.
Usually, when processing candid photographs I use a black and white technique, but in this case, because the couple were surrounded by beautiful flowers, I wanted to preserve their colours. As such, I only performed basic skin retouching and I added a selected vignette so that I emphasis the importance of the subject in the frame.
