When He Found Her + PV Takeover + Day 3

Stephen Wood

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 3: Another way I prevent creative ruts is to intentionally book “me time” into my schedule. It is incredibly important to ensure that you are building and investing into yourself and spending time doing what you love, outside of shooting. I have always found I am more creative, and produce my best work, when I carve out time for myself—whether that’s vacationing, hiking or spending time with family and friends . . . find whatever fills your cup. This image was taken at Milford Sound while my wife and I were in New Zealand for a shoot. We decided to make the most of our trip and fly in early to vacation a bit before the shoot. Shooting for yourself is freeing. Without the pressures of producing art for a client. It can be a great way to discover (or re-discover) who you are as an Artist.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 3: This image is from a one-on-one workshop I hosted last year. During the shoot, we experienced a sudden hailstorm in the middle of the beach and had only a few seconds to finish shooting. Fortunately, as the wind picked up, the fabric pressed across the model’s face, and I was able to snag this shot. Moments later, we were all sprinting to the cars. Remember, things will not always go as planned, be flexible and creative under pressure.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 3: I just want to say, thank you so much for following along these last few days! I had so much fun creating these posts, and I hope that they have helped or inspired you in some way. This black and white image is one of my favorite captures, it serves as a reminder to always be present and ready when shooting. During a wedding, anything can happen in an instant. Even with as much planning and scheduling that goes into them, photographers aren’t always aware of every last detail. In this example, the bride and groom had a traditional champagne toast just after the ceremony, but it started before they finished walking down the aisle—something I wasn’t ready for. I quickly grabbed my camera and shot like crazy. I managed to capture this moment, which describes the day perfectly: The couple, committing their lives to each other, surrounded by their friends and family, celebrating this new beginning. Thanks again for following along!

When He Found Her + PV Takeover + Day 2

Stephen Wood

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: First looks can be stressful as a photographer. You want these images to look natural, yet we always have to set them up and give instruction. I find it very helpful to remind my clients to stop and take in the moment before we start shooting. This usually helps my clients forget we are there and to naturally embrace each other and be present. This usually helps my clients forget I’m even there, allowing them to naturally embrace each other and to simply be present in the moment.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: This wedding was one of the most beautiful winter weddings I have had the pleasure of participating in. I was super pleased with this capture and how @photovisionprints scanned it. Unfortunately, the window was split into two horizontal panes, and the top of one pane went straight through the bride’s head. This is a rare example of when I had to do some heavy retouching in order to keep the image simple and clean; keeping the focus on the bride. Craft the image the best you can in camera. Always. But when you can’t, there’s Photoshop.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: As wedding photographers, our job can become incredibly repetitive. It’s so easy to slip into autopilot and shoot something we know our clients will love — but we might not be as proud of. One thing that has helped me from getting into creative ruts is to place myself in my client's shoes—take a few minutes to imagine all the emotions they might be feeling, and how you could translate those into unique captures. The image above is from an engagement session. I wanted to capture the anticipation of this new season of their lives . . . all the joy and freedom that comes with finding your soulmate.
