E-shoots are the perfect opportunity to have fun and play with your creativity. Most photographers prefer to have E sessions with their couples, it makes the couple comfortable in front of the camera, especially for those shy soon to be grooms. Nyx Photography had the opportunity to shoot Driekus and Joalette in a Pearl Harbour theme, the couples favorite film. Have a look and be inspired for your own E-Shoot!
The Theme | What was the look and feel of the shoot?
When I asked Joalette what their favourite movie was she replied whithin seconds “Pearl
Harbour” and that is when I knew that this was going to be an epic shoot.
With vintage flair and a modern twist we used fur and Driekus borrowed Joalette’s dad’s
military uniform to make it perfect and we even got to use the airport as our location.
I loved the way these two fell into character and acted their parts and I even got a chance
to be a part of it by doing the hair and make-up.
The Couple | Tell us a bit about your couple?
Driekus and Joalette had been dating since high school before deciding to take the
plunge last year and being hopeless romantics they had decided on a movie theme for
their pre-wedding session. Their own story being something out of a movie plot with
them only seeing each other periodically for months on end while he was studying, their
romance ended as a fairytale with a happy ever after.
The Trends | What’s hot at the moment?
We see more of the couples wanting to reenact fairytales or movies or even just want
something styled just for them. Just that something special that no one else had. It’s not
about the props and the shine but the attention to detail and the chance to take that flight
of fancy. As in this instance Driekus and Joalette lived so much into character.
