This image display the wedding bridal party at the Atlantis Pavilions in downtown Toronto. Has been a cloudy day and the suspended balconies worked so well in a dramatic composition against the overexposed sky.
Being apart about 100ft from the group I have directed and posed them from distance for the best natural looking interaction and feel.

 

Silver Award – Engagement Category

This beautiful lifestyle portrait of the couple has been shot in New York City and is part of the award winning engagement album that has also won the 2nd Place Award in Las Vegas at WPPI 2014.
The couple has been photographed though the Christmas mesh and being about 80 ft away while my assistant remotely added the beautiful soft light on them to match the ambient lighting of the Christmas mesh.

This portrait has been made in New York City and is part of the award winning engagement album that has also won the 2nd Place Award in Las Vegas at WPPI 2014.
The image has been shot on the Brooklyn bridge as sunset while tons of tourists were walking around. We have worked a lot the shooting and angle and the view of the bridge and also being careful for not getting any passing-by tourists.
The kicker video light worked so well adding a warm glow on the couple and contrasting nicely with the background.
