Pre Wedding Photography Barcelona: Beautiful Morning Session
Oh, how I love that early morning light when doing a Pre Wedding Photography Barcelona!
I know, I know: getting up super early is not everyone’s idea of a fun vacation. But look how beautiful this light was for Lynn & Mark’s Pre Wedding Photography Barcelona. It’s spectacular! True: afternoon sessions are also filled with golden light. But there’s something magical about waking up when the rest of Barcelona is sleeping off their tapas and racing down to the beach to catch the morning’s first rays.
Then, when you get to the beach and see that there’s no one there! Just empty beer cans and other evidence of last night’s debauchery. You can take advantage of the entire beach as your portrait playground! Even the Spanish grannies in their swimming caps haven’t arrived yet! 😉
But even more than at the beach, where I really noticed the difference between the AM and PM sessions was in the Gothic Quarter.
The Gothic Quarter, or Barrio Gótico, is a highlight of Barcelona. Dating back to the 12th century, the Medieval architecture of this neighborhood makes for an amazing backdrop. But like most amazing places, it’s often filled with curious travellers taking a sight seeing tour or simply enjoying the sunny plazas.
However, with Lynn & Mark’s Pre Wedding Photography Barcelona I learned that almost NO ONE is bustling around the Gothic Quarter at seven thirty in the morning! Just a few Spanish men with briefcases on their morning commute. Therefore, we had almost free reign over the quarter’s gorgeous cobblestone streets, pointed archways, and scary gargoyles. Plus, as a photographer, I was loving the beautiful morning light as it softly filled the streets and reflected upon windows. That allowed me to do a photo like this: using only natural light to create a dramatic style of photography. Gorgeous!
Lynn brought her dresses with her from Singapore. In fact, the stunning black and silver dress you see in the Gothic Quarter was purchased in a New York outlet from Oscar de la Renta! So cool! Lynn told me that black is not a common color for preweddings in Singapore. But, this dress was so fabulous she had to use it! I agree 😀
As a lot of brides ask me about renting wedding dresses in Barcelona, I’ve just begun renting dresses for my Pre Wedding Photography Barcelona sessions! I understand that bringing a huge wedding dress with you while traveling can be a pain. So I’m so excited to make my client’s life a bit easier by offering that extra service 🙂
Thank you so much Lynn & Mark for having me as your Barcelona Pre Wedding Photographer! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
