The Addison Grove, Austin, Texas Wedding - Paul and Kunbi

I haven’t shot a wedding like I had when I shot Paul and Kunbi’s wedding. They had a beautiful outdoors ceremony and an indoor barn reception at the Addison Grove in Austin, Texas. They are both very free spirited and free, whilst particular about wanting to have very little interference with their event. Our approach in this wedding was pretty simple, we just took the photos. Sometimes we get requests to pose our couples but Paul and Kunbi were just natural, apart from little guidance here and there there wasn't any need to tell them what to do. We thoroughly enjoyed photographing this event. 

All images were edit using the "Dory" preset (for color) and "Inifinity" preset (for monochrome) from the Zauberchroma collection in Adobe Lightroom. You can find out more about these presets which we developed by the amazing talent at DVLOP. We are going to be talking about these presets in our next blog post. They really do so well with dark skin post production in ways other presets don't.

Atlantis Bahamas Wedding, Asim + Ashley, SneakpeEk

We shoot so many weddings all over the world that we haven't even had time to share most of them online quick enough. I think it would be good to share some images from the weddings we are shooting as we shoot them. So here you go our first "sneak peek" into a recent destination wedding we shot in the Bahamas.

We are yet to post their engagement session but Asim and Ashley have been a very fine couple. They had a destination wedding in the Beautiful location of the Atlantis Resort at the Bahamas. They had family mainly who flew from all over the caribbean attend their very intimate ceremony. We were VERY blessed with the weather on this one. More photos to come later. Enjoy the sneak peek.
