Do I want to shoot a wedding on a Monday? Yes, I do.
Do I want to shoot it in Dublin City? Yes, I do.
Will I do just three hours work? Yes, I will.
Do I want to do a Wes Anderson inspired photoshoot? Are you freaking kidding me...YES!!!
When Andressa sent me an article about Wes Anderson locations I nearly lost my mind with the excitement. There are always elements of symmetry in most of my weddings but never the whole lot. This was so much fun to shoot as a photographer, symmetry really is everywhere once you look for it. For the sake of variety I did throw in a few rosemantic poses too.
So where did we go? Firstly that blue background was all the couples idea, it's the hoarding around a building site just down from the registry office where they tied the knot. Then I asked them if they'd come on the Dart with me, I never thought they'd go for it but we hoped on at Grand Canal for a super short trip to Pearse Street station, ran around some steps, took pictures on stairs and overhead walkways and came back to Grand canal. I wish I could have stopped the Dart though as it was super hard to balance and shoot, we had to hold onto something.
Where else, oh my, Windmill Lane studios...one of the coolest building facades in Dublin...super Wes Andersony but there were cars parked in front of it, bikes tied onto the railings etc. It was still worth a stop. Off to some green around Merrion square we thought we'd chance it and ask the security guards at the National Gallery of Ireland if we could jump in for 5 mins. Turns out, you can totally shoot in the gallery and there's no problem at all...DEADLY!!!! MORE SYMMETRY.
Off to the park then for a little back light love romantic pics and then away to the super cool Cafe En Seine, which I hadn't been in for years....must visit it again, love the colours and it match their car perfectly. Big shout out to Paul from American Vintage cars for driving us all around the city....oh and Wes Anderson! http://www.americanvintagecar.ie/
