Retro Romance - 1970's Inspired Love Shoot.
We went to Victoria Park in East London, which was the perfect setting for an adventurous romance shoot.
We set about creating a comfy little area to center the shoot around, hanging a backdrop of floaty seventies fabric behind two plump cushions. Then Josie decorated the comfy area with lots of props that you may find on a picnic for two, such as small sprays of flowers nestled in jars, pastel tupperware, linen napkins, lovely old milk bottles with stripy straws and big comfy cushions covered in beautiful retro fabric. Perfect for a nice bit of serenading, enter Antonio with his guitar! (and yes, he is a very talented guitar player)
Our inspiration throughout the shoot and our overall goal was to portray the excitement of being in love and to evoke the sense of adventure and abandon couples feel in their relationships.
Josie and Antonio were very comfortable in front of the camera because everything to do with the shoot was reflective of their own personalities, they were in their own comfort zone and the pictures look relaxed and effortless.
We think this is good inspiration for couples thinking about their engagement or love shoots. It’s important that you feel comfortable in your setting and surround yourself with things you love and activities that you would naturally do together. Then you will of course, look beautiful and relaxed! Perfect.
