Destination Wedding Barcelona

(google translator)
Actually it is a pre-wedding session, but performed as if it were a post-wedding. In Barcelona city, that’s true!.
The good thing about this type of sessions is that you can have a lot of time to make some images of the couple, because on the day of the wedding it’s impossible…everything goes very fast and scheduled. In general, you usually have 15-20 minutes to have a few images of the couple on their big day.

This session began at 10 a.m. and lasted until 7:30 p.m. But we were not all the time photographing, of course. A lot of time is lost in arriving at a site, finding the location and preparing to photograph. The sites they chose were: El Poble Espanyol, Las fuentes de Montjuic and surroundings, the Cathedral and a part of the Gothic and finally, the Turó de la Robira. They are only four locations, but it took us almost all day.

The result is that I am delighted with my first session dedicated full time to a very close couple in my city, Barcelona. Yes, it was exhausting, but also very grateful. And surprised by the number of couples we met on a working monday who also went to these sites to be photographed.

And I take very positive notes of this experience that will serve me if I make a second session in Barcelona city. Because it’s true that a lot of my sessions are not in the city, but in nearby, quieter locations, about 30 minutes at most.

A few days later, I had the opportunity to carry out the same concept but in the area of Begur “and surroundings”. But this I will tell you in another post …

I have things to upload to the blog from the month of June and they are not few… Just thinking about the material I have, it gives me a panic attack, but I’ll try to put some order and go up little by little when I find free moments.
