Pre-wedding film for Juanny & Yuri

Video – Elegant Elopement in Sydney

Make sure you’ve read part one of a story of Polina and Artur

Life is full of surprises and wedding days are no exception. Elopements don’t require as much planning as traditional weddings, even so, great results always lie in a proper pre-production.  

Prema Photo always has a meeting with couples before their wedding in order to finalize all the details. Everything is planned out during these meetings so the day will run seamlessly and to ensure couples of our experience so they will be nothing but confident on their big day.

A timeline of the day is drawn out so we can shoot in the correct natural light. We also look for the best backdrop options and play around with light.  

When choosing locations for a wedding film and photo session we anticipate being flexible and always have a Plan B – such as an indoor location for a shoot or even for the ceremony. 

The rest is very simple. We focus on capturing the deep love and happiness of the newly married couple. 

In this film and photo session with Artur and Polina, we ran into a couple of unexpected conditions. From a golf club, we drove to Long Reef Point to capture the ocean but were met by torrential rain. We were flexible and waited in the car for about half an hour until the rain stopped. Our patience paid off because a magnificent rainbow showed over the ocean which is a sign of blessing for the beginning of a new family. 

In any situation during a shoot, couples are never pushed to do something they are not comfortable with. As professionals, the team at Prema Photo does their best to help the couple relax and just enjoy themselves as much as possible. 

Stills from Prema Photo videos aren’t an alternative to investing in wedding photography. The different camera settings in video mode are very different than traditional photography.  

The stills appear more like a pause on your favorite movie scene. I use them to give the couple a sneak peek a few weeks before the final film is delivered because not every cut goes into the highlighted film. 

Each film we produces is unique. While we still make sure the film reflects our elegant style, the vibe and tempo are always a little different. The film and photos we capture reflect the couple’s love and their special day.

Prema Photo has been making professional photography and videography since 2013 and strives to reach the highest expectations of each client by delivering elegant, high-quality films and photo galleries.

With love, Diana

North Sydney Family Film & Photos for Misa

As a Sydney based photographer and videographer, I love to explore the city and surrounding areas noting the most photogenic spots for future client sessions. When Dan and Yui asked me to create their very first family film for their baby Misa I offered to do it at Cremorne Point in North Sydney. I used to live there and know every corner of the gorgeous coastal walk. Dan and Yui are also local to the area and love to spend family time there with Misa.

family-video-north-sydney-location-ideas

It’s quite common that photo sessions are scheduled in early mornings or the golden hour to get the best light. However, I always ask my clients what time of day their kids are the most playful and relaxed. As baby Misa was almost seven months old her most active time was midday. I don’t have any problems with harsh light as the latest photo equipment I use has a huge dynamic range and allows me to capture beautiful photos and videos in any light condition.

We were happy to breathe in fresh air as smoke from bushfires covered Sydney for almost two months. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for a beautiful family shoot. And of course, we couldn’t miss the chance to have the iconic Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge as our background setting.

The film session had a natural easy flow. Misa, had the sweetest smile, was carefree, and enjoyed the session. I made sure to capture her adorable expressions as she ate the yummy food her mother, Yui, had cooked for her. Her beautiful smile shown bright as her dad tickled her with so much love. Sniffing the flowers and watching rainbow lorikeets were something new for her and I had so much pleasure capturing her reactions in those beautiful moments. Another special moment was when Misa showed us she could roll over on her tummy.

After the shoot, Dan and Yui invited me to a local cafe for lunch. They remarked that the session was fun and easy-going. They admitted I prepared them well with an introduction email and made the session an enjoyable time for them as a family.

Preparing for a film or photo session is important. Families and couples are always prepared before a session with Prema Photo through a short, detailed email. I always make points on: 

  • Clothing recommendations on style and color palette. For example, I recommend kids under one wear a one-piece romper/jumpsuit so their nappy would be completely covered if they are lifted up during a shoot.
  • My friendly, laid back approach. I like to be as non-intrusive as possible. My team and I help with poses or specific actions if needed but I’m very adaptive. I always encourage people to be relaxed and do regular things or improvise if they feel comfortable doing so. This way, the moments I capture are often more genuine and enchanting. 
  • Figuring out the best time of day kids would be in a playful mood. This is for sure a number one priority as a happy child will make parents happy and stress free.

Old family photos are treasures of mine. They bring back wonderful memories of the people who have given me so much love throughout life. As a photographer and videographer, I strive to give my clients high-quality film and photos that will hold so many loving memories.

I captured the loving and playful moments Dan, Yui and Misa share as a family in over three minutes of film and over one hundred stills that they may keep as long-lasting treasures.

Orson – Family film and photos in Mosman

I love being a photographer and videographer in Sydney, Australia. The city and surrounding areas are the perfect setting for playful, sweet, and elegant shoots. 

Prema Photo sessions are shot in locations familiar to our clients because it’s important that people, especially children, feel comfortable and inspired by their surroundings.

kids-photosession-in-spring-photo
family-enjoys-jacaranda-photosession-photo

This shoot with Grigori, Alyona, and their little son Orson was done in Mosman, a suburb on Sydney’s lower North Shore. It is a favorite suburb of theirs and they spent a lot of time there before Orson was born. Now as a family, the beautiful parks, amazing kids’ playgrounds, cafes, and the relaxing Balmoral Beach make Mosman their go-to weekend destination.

a-couple-portrait-under-jacaranda-tree-photo
a-boy-plays-with-jacaranda-flowers-photo

It was a warm spring day and the purple flowers of the jacaranda trees made a charming backdrop for their photos and videos together. 

woman-smiles-under-jacaranda-tree-photo
joyfull-candid-family-photo

A couple of weeks before the session, Grigori and Alyona gave me a list of Orson’s favorite things to do. They had expected him to be photographed excited about the beach, chasing seagulls, trying new foods, collecting sticks and rocks, drinking from the fountain, or receiving loads of attention from other people.

romantic-style-spring-photo-shoot-photo

However, when it came time to shoot, Orson seemed to have completely different interests. He even seemed unenthusiastic about trying ice cream for the first time. Of course, that could be because dad had already introduced it to him in secret. Imagine mom’s surprise!

young-family-weekend-photo
cheeky-boy-in-jacaranda-bloom-photo

Orson’s parents even brought lemon wedges hoping I would capture his funny reaction to the sour flavor he would taste. But instead, he happily ate the lemons as if they were candy.

family-photo-session-ideas-photo
father-and-son-have-fun-in-the-mosman-park-photo

Because Orson’s interests seemed to have changed, Grigori and Alyona just enjoyed playing with him. They copied his funny mumbling, jumped up and down with him, and whirled with him on a swing. The joy this family shared was contagious.

gorgeous-couple-in-jacaranda-flowers-photo
baby-boy-portrait-photo

It’s amazing how quickly children change, not just in looks, but in how they act, their tastes, and their preferences. It’s easy for parents to stress if their child’s behavior or interests are different than usual during a session. My work requires me to take up a little side job as a psychologist to keep parents calm and reassure them not to get discouraged.

mother-showes-banksia-leaves-to-the-son-photo
play-time-with-family-photo

A huge tip I share with parents is to let their kids be in the moment. A photo or video session should be as natural and spontaneous as possible, so the end results are full of life.  

When kids can be in the moment, their reactions, though perhaps different than expected, are still special. It’s still a moment in their childhood worth preserving.

This is what sets Prema Photo apart from other photography and videography services. What I capture isn’t posed. It’s spontaneous and genuine.

mosman-family-photo-session-photo

Overall, this session was a very pleasant time for me, Orson, and his parents. Grigori had said it was enjoyable and stress-free and Alyona remarked that they couldn’t be happier. In three hours and three locations, I was able to capture more than 3 minutes of film and more than 100 stills for them to keep.

a-child-plays-at-playground-photo

The film and photos were a perfect Christmas gift for Orson’s grandparents who live overseas. The video was even more special to the grandparents because they could enjoy the moments Grigori, Alyona, and Orson shared during the session as if they were right there with them.

Read Grigori and Alyona’s review of Prema Photo below. 

Diana is absolutely amazing, she makes the whole process fun, enjoyable and absolutely stress-free, while creating great photos and videos. Highly recommend. Thank you Diana for the wonderful memories you created for us!

Grigori

I had a great experience with Nikolay and Diana. They did our family photoshoot and video. The results are absolutely amazing, we couldn’t be happier. The video in particular is great as it has a movie quality at the same time looking natural and not staged. Definitely recommend!

Pre wedding film in Portugal

Last spring, I traveled to Europe on holiday and stopped at a bar while passing through Lisbon, Portugal. It was there I spotted a certain young couple sitting near my table. I couldn’t help but notice how in love they looked and caught a glimpse of a beautiful engagement ring on the woman’s finger.

lisbon-portugal-destination-wedding-film
bride-groom-europe-elopement-photo

I asked them how long they’d been engaged and the couple, Selina and Duarte, answered that they were only engaged for a few days. As we chatted, they learned I was a videographer from Sydney, Australia and revealed that they were just looking for someone to make a pre-wedding film for them while they were in Lisbon. I had all my equipment with me and knew it was possible to organize a shoot in a few days, so I agreed to help them out.

beach-wedding-photo-session-video

We met up the next day to plan the future shoot and discussed locations that meant the most to them (and were a must-see for me). We decided on Cabo da Roca, which is a cape on the westernmost point of mainland Portugal, and decided to film there at sunset – the golden hour.

piggy-back-ride-photo-ideas-video

Selina (from Barcelona, Spain) and Duarte (from Madrid) were both freelance models. In fact, they met while on a photoshoot in Lisbon less than a year before their engagement. They spent all their time in between shoots learning about each other and exploring Portugal. When their job was finished and they returned home, Duarte would visit Selina in Barcelona every chance he could get. And eight months later, he proposed to her as they were traveling through Lisbon.

beautifull-bride-elopement-video

The day was cloudy, but there was a sort of elegance in this shoot with the cape as the backdrop. The feel was immensely romantic because, although Selina and Duarte lived in front of cameras for their modeling career, they didn’t pay any attention to my camera during our film session together. The young future bride and groom were completely absorbed in one another.

drone-photo-pre-wedding-elopement

sunset-photo-session-in-Ilisbon-video

You could truly see the connection they shared by the way they laughed together as Duarte gave Selina a piggy-back ride into the ocean and the way they looked at each other as she would brush back the curls in his hair. There was no staging at all – it was just the two of them being in love, and the simplicity of that was beautiful.

Organizing a shoot in just a few days is possible if you just have a good plan set in place. It’s important to discuss the location (and scout the area if you are able), know the time of day you would like to shoot, and have appropriate attire for the environment and weather. This pre-wedding engagement shoot is a perfect example of how Prema Photo prepares and executes a session with little time.

I was able to provide Selina and Duarte with four minutes of highlighted film and one hundred high-resolution photo stills for them to treasure for their whole lives.
