Communication and empathy are the basis of a good photographic project. Creating a bond, talking to the heart of the spouses , without too much formality, helps to break the ice and establish that climate of trust that makes the photo shoot better in many aspects. The prenuptial reportage is undoubtedly an input to all this, precisely because it helps to get used to the presence of a photographer, as well as to get to know each other better and get the minimum of confidence that is needed for a beautiful photo shoot. Intimacy and confidentiality are the essential ingredients, according to Matteo Innocenti , to create the right atmosphere of relaxation in which the spouses can indulge in complicit and tender shots , without the interference of friends and relatives.
Playing with the light, with the perspective, with the context and with the crucial elements of the wedding such as the bouquet of flowers or the various decorations is essential but it is even more intercepting the looks: the eyes tell emotions , communicate feelings that go from the emotion, pride, up to passion. In short, nothing looks hidden by dark sunglasses: it is better to give free space to the transparency of feelings . In all this, the framing and the light play a fundamental role in the construction of the styling of the photo so that it can tell the moment in the best way that is being photographed, and this cannot be separated from the artistic sensibility of the photographer in question.
The best seasons that emphasize light and color are spring and autumn, especially just before sunset. You can still take a nice couple photo even in August at noon, you just need to know how to manage the available space, without necessarily building a set of photos to be taken. Ultimately, for Matteo Innocenti: “experience makes us understand what is needed for that particular service since each marriage and each couple are different”.
One click must be transformed into an emotion that can be perceived even after many years, while you will be thinking back to your sentences of love pronounced at the foot of the altar. The estimate? The right opportunity to have a coffee, discover yourself, tell yourself and create the feeling you need for your wedding day. Although many consider it a valid support, for Ivan Fois the premarital service is not at all necessary, indeed almost a forced procedure and unrelated to the marriage. That day there are emotions and suggestions that there is not enough pre-marriage to prepare; unique and unrepeatable emotions, beautiful to live even in the company of friends as long as they are spontaneous and authentic.
