As photographers, we are always trying to find a way to step up the quality of our images and give them a more edgy and modern look. Looking through a magazine such as Vogue or Vanity fair, you will see high fashion shots with dramatic poses and lighting—these are things that we strive to apply to our photos in order to get a unique and captivating photo of a bride and groom on their wedding day.
At the elegant Coast Capri Hotel in Kelowna, British Columbia, we were able achieve this look with a stylish couple. This venue, within walking distance to the scenic Okanagan Lake, was full of opportunities and a variety of backgrounds for awesome night shots of the newlyweds. As we explored the location with these two clients, we entered a hallway that featured interesting lighting and many reflective surfaced. This new-fashioned image of the couple sharing an intimate moment was captured in a way to show off the bride’s trendy grown and heels. The glass table across from the couch created a perfect mirror of the posed subject, making the overall photo more artsy and contemporary. This shot reminds me of the perfume or cologne ads that you often come across in fashion magazines.
