It’s not often that I have the chance to produce destination engagement photography in Cadiz. I’ve photographed weddings in Spain, Italy, France, even Ireland! But I’ve never hopped over the water to snap a pre-wedding shoot. However, last week in Cadiz I did just that!
If you haven’t been Cadiz it a beaut of a city. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel all over Spain. As some of you may know, I was a Formula One photographer in my past life. The first time I went out there was for work, and I was hooked from my first visit. So when I say that Cadiz has one of the nicest old towns I’ve been to, you get an idea of how lovely it is. Some of the beaches are HUGE too!
We had super weather for our shoot. The kind of weather you dream of in the UK. Vero and Alejandro were a little disappointed that it was so windy. Apparently the day before we met for our shoot, the weather was perfect. I have to say that it felt pretty perfect on the day of our shoot to me, but I suppose the Spanish may not be used to the type of weather were have to endure in the UK!
I hadn’t met Vero and Alejandro before, so we took some time to have a chat with lunch on the beach. I’ve always felt like this is one of the important aspects of the pre-wedding shoot. Getting to know one another before the big day can go a long way to making your experience more relaxed, so we can produce those photographs that have a reportage feel. It’s nice to have a friendly face arrive to your bridal prep, and not a stranger! For some, it will prevent a layer of stress that just isn’t necessary. If you like relaxed, documentary style photography, it’s important for you to feel that way. These photo shoots will go a long way towards helping with that I guarantee it!
Anyway, here are the images from the shoot. It was great to discover such an amazing city with a super fun couple, so thank you to Alejandro and Vero. I loved the tapas, the wine (and maybe a beer too!) but most of all I loved having a camera in my hand. Photographing couples is still a hobby, even after being a Northamptonshire wedding photographer for 10 years! I hope you love the pics!
