If your going to have Biltmore Engagement Photos, then you might as well dress and act the part. This was exactly the case here with Leslie and David's "over the top" Engagement Session in Miami. They truly do live the "high life" and wanted to have some fun at one of their favorite hotels. Everything from a pillow fight, to sexy shots, and romantic shots of them all dressed up IN the pool!
This is the main lobby of the Biltmore Hotel. Many images were taken here, and this was one of my favorites. We had the hotel staff bring out some campaign, and caviar to give more structure, and to add in some more “believably” to the shots. (in some of the other frames they are drinking, etc.). They wanted to create some images that are very “regal”, and upscale and this shot kinda says it all. The lighting here was pretty complex.. I had a Mola “beauty dish” on a boom stand, and two full length strip banks camera left, and right for a balanced “rim” light (if you look close you can see the light I am talking about edging out David). All the lights had to have grids installed to prevent spill, so it was a bit of work to get it all setup. For this reason I don't have time limits for my sessions, which is refreshing. Instead I focus on getting real results that matter and my clients are excited about!
