What’s your signature style?
Most people who come to us, seem to be attracted by the 'filmesque' style our videos. We always try to paint a significant picture in our work, following a certain storyboard, and curated to perfection. Down to the smallest detail, quite like film production!
What are the essential items other than a camera and lens you bring to a shoot?
Depending on the kind of theme chosen, the idea created and the couple's individual styles, we take great care to have all the essentials necessary to get the job done. Sometimes also extra accessories - from the basics such as fairy lights all the way to customizable colored walls and decors. We always aspire to add that extra 'spice' to our videos!
What tricks do you use to help nervous couples relax for their pictures?
Communication with the client helps a lot! We usually tend to ask them a couple of questions beforehand on what their hobbies are, their favorite movies, sports, anything that could give us a hint of their personality. Then we relate all those topics to behaviorism, posing style, and trying to get the most our of what we want the couple to give on set.
