'before the wedding' photos can be awesome

It is really nice to see a couple without any fear of others judging their publicly displayed hapiness. They played, they kissed, they were truly great. We spent together several hours, in a fabulous location, on the shore of Snagov Lake.

Their wedding took place in the same location, so images feel natural, unposed, in a familiar surrounding. This is the way I like to thing: bring the couple in a spot not being forced on them by the photographer. Images will have a relaxed look, people will feel confortable and not manipulated by the man with a camera in his hands.

The following image is one of my favorite engagement photos. It has both direction and space, sexiness and movement, mistery and sense of watching through a keyhole. All ingredients for a timeless image.
