On a sunny June day, I went out with my assistant and the couple Gabriela & Cosmin to organize a couple photo shoot in lavender in the Provence area of France. Lavender is a great place for a creative photo shoot. I’ve been thinking for a long time about organizing and photographing a couple photo shoot in a lavender chain near Nice. I found the perfect place: a lavender field in Provence county. A completely unexpected place, with a long hill full of lavender rows. I was a good time to organize the photo shoot, because the lavender was blossoming and its color was intensely enhanced.
Among the chains you can organize family photo shoots in lavender or engagement photos in lavender with a beautiful color. On this occasion we organized a couple photo shoot in lavender, after which the young couple has some beautiful photos to choose from for their wedding invitations.
Couple photo shoot lavender Provence
As a destination wedding photographer in Provence I know that any photo shoots needs to be well organized. So we made our plan early and created the route, but also a moodboard with some photos for inspiration. There are many photos with lavender photo shoots on Pinterest from which we were inspired. With the help of a special site I created a moodboad. When we arrived at the place we were immediately impressed with the lavender chains and we moved away from the people around us to create the couple photo shoot with lavender around. I was careful to use a large aperture diaphragm to make the background blurry. For the bright sun period my assistant used a blender to create a uniform shadow on the couple. And in the last 20 minutes the sunlight was perfect for exciting photos at the lavender photo shoot.
Gabriela & Cosmin were very well organized and came with a perfect photo mood for the photo shoot in the lavender garden in Provence, France. In addition to some props brought by the two of them we also photographed some bouquets of lavender flowers, but we also used the beautiful area full of color. I think it’s the dream of every photographer to organize a couple photo shoot in lavender in Provence area or a photo shoot in the awesome light. I look forward to the next opportunity to hold a lavender photo shoot.
