Have you seen our latest photos of the day on social media? Every day we post a wedding photo or portrait on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that we consider to be one of the most interesting in its genre, and we ask the creatives behind the photos to detail the background story of the picture and their technical approach. Here’s what caught our attention this week.
LIGHT ON FACE PORTRAITS
Anu and Raghu couple were photographed at their California home, while wedding photographer Rimi Sen took pictures remotely via FaceTime.
“With not much work to do during the lockdown, I started exploring the concept of FaceTime and virtual shoots, much like my mentor Sephi Bergerson did,” says Sen, who was named an Rf 30 Rising Star in 2019 tries to bring in my style and experience of photographing wedding and couple portraits. It was a desperate attempt to keep doing something but I really enjoyed doing it in the end. ”
For this shoot, recorded on the couple’s iPhone using the CLOS app, Sen says that Anu first took them on a virtual tour of their house, and then Sen only experimented with natural light in the couple’s bedroom.

Scott McIntyre photographed this picture of his son Ben in their driveway on a rainy afternoon.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY
This picture, captured during an engagement session for married couple Brittney and Brandon in Miami, is evidence of how the creative team has been able to stay safe and continue to work safely during the pandemic, according to photographer Vanessa + Johnny.
“I love taking pictures on the beach, especially now,” says Vanessa. “There’s a lot of space and wind there, and I feel like I can relax and connect with my subjects instead of worrying about the coronavirus.”
