Creating engagement videos has been a recent escapade that J'adore has been slowly trying to build up. We love doing photo/video sessions as it brings us closer to the clients. Knowing about the journey and how two people ended up at this point gives us more of a creative edge that we can bring forth with our products.
We are always asked "What do you expect for an engagement shoot" And to put it simple, you need to just come to the setting with an open attitude, The first thing we try to aim for at the start of every engagement shoot, is understanding again how the journey came about.
We had the great pleasure of shooting Bryn and Sophie's engagement video, With just five weeks before their wedding, We were more than keen to get just a little bit of insight into the couple before they decided to make those final steps.
By the time the couple came in, we were prepared with a series of basic questions that gave us a bit of insight. Bryn went first after being lapelled while Sophie went to The Paper Cup cafe right around the corner from the studio. Rob got straight into the questions ranging from how they first met, to where he proposed.
Once Bryn was finished giving Rob a bit of insight onto the journey it was Sophie's go. My favourite question that always get's a teary reaction is how they propose. Hearing Sophie's side gave us a little more entail to the selfie stick in Japan situation, yet Bryn pulled out all stops even while holding the ring two days around Japan prior to the proposal.
Once we got to the Ashmore Botanical Gardens, the both of us set up our cameras with Robs gimbal, and my monopod ready to go. Instantly Bryn and Sophie glided together, and you could tell that this was the natural way they were together, they just meshed, Sophie would make the funny faces that would get Bryn cheekily smiling; and it was beautiful just watching them both so naturally act together.
This little love story, is only going to get more exciting, with Bryn & Sophie's wedding coming up up at Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard & Winery, there are exciting times looming ahead, and the J'adore team can't wait to be apart of it!
