this pre-debut shoot is so special to us. it is special because of the amount of energy we exerted to come up with these images.
from the planning to the execution, i would say this is one of the most difficult shoots i had. i find pre-wedding shoots easier to shoot even how complex the concept is because it involves two people in a frame. iceland as most of you know is beautiful in every angle and that makes this shoot even harder. but i am not complaining, i am still grateful because not everyone has the chance to do this in their lifetime. if you plan to shoot in iceland for your engagement session or pre-debut shoot, make sure to hire someone who has been there and done that. wink*. kidding aside, make sure you plan ahead, plan well, plan beyond what you imagine. it takes more than a talent to be able to do something massive as this. it requires not just energy but a sound mind and a determined heart.
enjoy this one-of-a-kind predebut shoot.
