Isle of Skye Wedding Photographers' Individual Vision
14 October 2021
Wedding and elopement photographers, on the Isle of Skye, have their own individual styles and approaches to their photography.  At Euphoria, we deliberately plan to create something unique for every client, for every shoot.  Sometimes, we have been flattered by other photographers copying our special poses.  Does that concern us?  Well, no, not really.  There is a quote by Bambi Cantrell, in one of her Masterclasses, which puts this matter in perspective.  Bambi refers to the way in which some photographers closely guard their secrets and are unwilling to share ideas and concepts.  One reason Bambi was unconcerned about sharing her secrets was because “no one can steal” her vision.
Recently, a Euphoria blog discussed the secret of a posing concept we planned and executed.  As Bambi pointed out, even if someone does try to copy your vision, they cannot because they simply are unable see your vision.  They have their own and however desperately they try to duplicate your work, they cannot.  This is why we can only ever draw inspiration from other photographic artists; never duplicate it!
The above image was shot by Roz, inspired by a Jerry Ghionis fashion shoot.  The still, reflective and almost eerie atmosphere of Loch Coruisk formed the backdrop.  Here, we placed the bride on the rock, in a “flying position,” where she was effectively reflected in the loch.  Next, Roz waited for the moment when a large seagull glided into her composition and, at that precise second, she pressed the shutter.  The bride is gazing up at the soaring gull and appears to be about to fly upwards to meet it.  No one can steal this vision.  If they try to, they cannot bring together all the inter-playing elements nor can they have Roz’ vision.
An interesting phenomenon we notice is that, once an original image such as this has been taken, we would never succeed in recreating it ourselves!  Another bride was so thrilled by the romance of this photograph that she wanted “to fly” at her own Loch Coruisk Elopement.  We explained that all that formed this image could not be duplicated but that we would have her “fly” in her own unique photographs!
For every set of clients, we like to get to know you and create uniquely, gorgeous wedding photographs for you to treasure for always.  Please do get in touch to discuss your own magical elopement or wedding photographs.
