I had the pleasure of doing an engagement shoot for the lovely Liz and Phil from San Francisco. We met on a particularly gloomy day in Barcelona, where the buildings seemed to swallow up all the sun that was on offer that day with shade, but we were not deterred and we had a blast running around chasing the sunbeams! Although I was searching for the light, I also really enjoyed all the shadows as they added a great contrast and a romantic feel to the images.
We ran through the old streets of Barcelona and through to light, and bright open spaces which offered us a warm autumn, afternoon glow. I always love sharing my favourite, secret spots throughout Barcelona when shooting as it evokes natural reactions of joy, laughter and happiness! These guys didn't need any direction on how to look in love, I had all I needed by just making the shoot relaxed and informal and just getting them to be themselves! They were up for trying everything in the shoot so we had fun trying lots of different angles in a few different locations.
We finished off the shoot at their favorite Tapas Bar in El Borne where we all raised a glass (or two) to the happy couple and talked about love, life and Barcelona.
