#JANANDJOANNA | Our Modern Minimalist Pre-wedding Shoot with Chestknots

Jan and Joana-191 Yan and I had quite a number of pre-wedding photoshoots planned and to avoid redundancy, we decided to change the look of each photoshoot. We are both especially particular about small details which is why it was such an experience to get to work with Chestknots and Lifestyle by Feliz as they are, like me and Yan, perfectionists.

It was a huge risk to go for a modern, minimalist and geometric theme especially because most photoshoots being done now have a very dreamy, airy and romantic feel but I just  couldn’t escape being drawn to this aesthetic though especially with my background in interior design and my current obsession with rose gold, organic and minimalist themes. The challenge of course was bringing together all the elements to make a cohesive, well thought-of photo and video pre-wedding shoot and I was quite blown away by the end result. At the end of the day, I am so happy that Yan and I, along with the whole team, took a leap of faith and decided to work with what we love and I am very happy with how everything turned out. One of the biggest lessons I have learned from this shoot and in planning a wedding in general is to be as true to your aesthetic and style as possible. Be sure to make decisions based on what will make you and your fiancé happy to be doing and the rest… will work itself out.
