Heavens Gate Couple Shoot- Kels and Craig
This was a romantic heavens gate couple shoot because the late afternoon light was perfect for them. This venue really lends itself to romantic photos with its calm and serene setting. It has a lake surrounded by weeping willows and covered in swans. The various bridges and walkways are wrapped in fairy lights. The couple also brought along sparklers to use as a prop in some of their pictures. Heavens Gate is an award winning venue on the east rand and one of my preferred venues to photograph at. This young couple had great fun creating these images. They are also quite flexible so were able to do different poses that involved lifts or lying down on the ground. These kinds of poses offer a different perspective and can really help to change up normal poses from a couple photoshoot. Its a great idea to look at different photos before your couple photoshoot to see the kinds of poses you like and discuss these with your photographer. That said dont go overboard and smother a photographers creativity and try to be realistic in your expectations. Photographers have their own style and definitely cant add elements in if they arent there. So the venue you choose is also important for the final look and feel of your photos.
