Shante and Sam's Post Wedding Shoot

Post wedding shoots are a thing in Asian culture, and I’m all in! I love pre-wedding sessions, special bridal sessions, wedding day boudoir sessions, and of course, after wedding shoots.

We did this Miami Post Wedding Shoot in February 2020, right before Rona came and put us into home prisons. It was actually my last wedding shoot of the first half of 2020 if I don’t count a few engagement sessions.

Shante and Sam live in New Jersey, and they came to Miami for this shoot. We have been chatting about the location for a few days, and we finally agreed for Key Biscayne. And boy, what excellent location choice and beautiful day.

We actually aimed for the sunset, so we started in the late afternoon. First, we played on the beach, or in the bushes. Then I found a lovely lady on the beach, and she gave us her last piece of bread crumbs to attract some seagulls.

The fundamental part of the shoot happened on the rocks with a beautiful sunset. Luckily, I had my assistant (I always recommend this option when booking a session), so we could work with my lights, and Cris also helped a lot with styling the dress.

And finally my favorite part …. and if you know me, you know what it was, right? Another of my couple jumped into the water. I can count this one into my 18 because this wasn’t a real wedding day tho. Right onto the blue hour (actually more like 20 minutes of this light), we ran in the water and had a lot of fun.

I hope that you can see the joy on our pictures from this Miami Post Wedding Shoot because I love them! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
