A short while ago, the boo and I volunteered to shoot for Bernard and Jolin’s 1st year anniversary. After reading so many pre-wedding photography blogs, I was both apprehensive and excited to try shooting for myself. Apprehensive because I was afraid that we wouldn’t be good enough, and that we wouldn’t know how to direct the couple to get those natural-looking photos; and excited because lately I’ve really been seriously considering wedding or couple photography (at least on a part time basis for now) and it was a great opportunity for us to practice.
I used to have the biggest ego when it came to my own work, like I would separate photos taken by me or by the boo and separately watermark them or separately credit them. Now, I’m learning to let go of my ego and see the both of us as a team instead of being individuals because both of us have our own strengths and weaknesses that we can bring to the table.
For the shoot we went to PJ Trade Centre because they wanted floor to ceiling brick walls and PJ Trade Centre was known for its exposed brick walls, concrete ceilings and cement floors.
