I love having the opportunity to shoot underwater! I had my first chance to photograph underwater a few years ago and the results were amazing! When Dana Bresin of DB Creativity had a client tell her they wanted an underwater theme for their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah she knew immediately where to send them for photography.
Liana’s session was a lot of fun. We decided to keep things simple, but give it a bit of an ethereal look. I built a rope swing, wrapped it in fake vines and weighed it down in the pool. The look is exactly what I had envisioned. We also used a floral crown that didn’t cooperate for the entire shoot, but did hold up for a few shots. Liana’s Bat Mitzvah reception was fantastic and not only were these images highlighted in her sign-in book that I created, but they were also projected on 3 screens during the reception. (Photos from that coming soon!)
My friend Jeremy Dayton with On Bended Knee Films also shot some behind the scenes footage during this shoot both above and below the water. Check out the video he created: Behind the Scenes – Underwater Shoot
