Bride in National Theatre
A picture is worth more than a thousand words. Well I have edited just handful images for this blog but they show a spectacular architecture of Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava with a bride in it.
This winter break from Vancouver weddings brought me to Europe where I worked on couple photography projects and also had a chance to enjoy my family. This photo shoot I am about to share with you was quite a unique experience for me. My ‘bride’ was Slovakian opera singer Alenka and where else could we create better images of her than at the place she performs. The theatre.
This was a dream come true for any photographer. I had the theatre available for couple hours and could move around and create images I wanted. Well the crew was building a stage for the evening Carmen opera so I could not move their direction but I believe they enjoyed looking at us a lot. Specially when Alenka posed at the main stage of the theatre.
Antique red armchairs which you can see usually in museums got a sparkle of light on them when they switched the lodge lighting for me on. I had to travel light to Europe, so the main light source I see for the whole session were 2 LED lights and 1 wireless flash. That was it. Simple but effective, that is how I shoot at weddings and can move around fast enough not to miss anything.
Can you imagine to have the whole wedding reception in this kind of location. Amazing. I miss the old European architecture a lot. Saloons with high ceilings, huge windows and bride in them. Like a fairytale. Looking forward to shoot this wedding season. I had recharged my batteries and let’s get to work again.
Thank you Alenka for being such a great bride and allowing us to capture your beauty in such a spectacular location. Runaway bride or Cinderella on the stairs 🙂
