Shooting during "Golden hour" has been one of my favourite things to do as a Portrait Photographer. Pranali has contacted me few weeks ago to book a photo shoot with me. She was visiting some other European cities and Amsterdam is her last stop and she wanted to make the most of it and having a photo shoot done in Amsterdam is a unique way to end the most amazing trip. We both agreed on a date and time and after few days we discussed the outfits and I asked her if she has any list of places that she want to shoot at for which she replied "Not really, but I would like to get pictures like a local, doing the most local things and being myself"... Cut to the day of shoot, we initially thought of shooting early in the morning.. but she asked me if it's possible to shift it to the evening. I agreed to it as I was planning to shoot some golden hour portraits anyway. We met near Leidsegracht in Amsterdam and started walking in the streets.. When I started clicking, I can already feel the positive vibes and God damn! This woman is just amazing. She was just being herself, just walking, stopping by the local shops, talking like we were some long lost friends... everything was just perfect. We even stopped to get a coffee at the end of our photo shoot and just sat and talked about anything and everything. Perks of shooting with me. You not only get free coffee and lots and lots of things to talk about.. But the most AMAZINGGGG pictures ;)
Check them out and let me know how you like it :)
