Couple session on Mallorca – Erica and Dan
As a Mallorca wedding photographer, I get used to working with all kinds of couples. One of the most enjoyable couple session I’ve every done was with Photographer Erica and Dan from USA.
Mallorca wedding photographer with a difference!
Erica and Dan wanted dramatic photographs that showed the depth of their love for each other. Couple photographs are one of my greatest strengths, therefore to capture the range of their relationship we opted for not one, but two locations. Firstly, we went to the mountains, Cap de Formentor in the early morning – while the weather was pretty cold. Once there, we were able to use the striking morning light to showcase the affection between them. Atmospheric skies and crowning rocky mountain landscapes, made a stunning backdrop for a pewter sea, and the craggy vistas, softened by native grasses, were a perfect setting for some adventurous shots, highlighting the intensity of their feelings for each other.
In the evening we changed the mood completely, with a relaxed swimsuit session on the beach at Cala del Moro. With such a lively and happy couple it was easy to get some intimate couple photographs. In addition, being in a different location was a great opportunity to explore not only a different side of their relationship but furthermore, to get adventurous with some amazing underwater photography! As a Mallorca wedding photographer, I’m used to finding perfect locations for couples and wedding photography. Softer skies, golden sand and some inquisitive fish combined, making this session light-hearted and fun.
Achieving the perfect couple photo-shoot
For Erica and Dan, the mood of their two photo shoots was a crucial consideration. Using landscape to highlight emotions is key to success when photographing a couple outdoors. In Mallorca we’re lucky enough to have a range of landscapes that make perfect backdrops for romantic photographs. A successful couples shoot requires more than just backgrounds though. Additionally a photographer has to have the ability to work closely with the couple. Both equally offering some direction and responding to their interactions in a sensitive fashion that allows the true nature of their relationship to shine. Also, working with natural light is vital to creating the right atmosphere and relaxed vibe.
