Aerial GoPro drone photography is a hot topic right now, the advances in technology are astounding and offer incredible opportunities for innovation and experimentation. On a recent trash the dress shoot with newlyweds Lenessa and James, Matt brought out the GoPro and the drone to have some fun shooting from above while Sol shot from the beach at the Al Cielo hotel. Lenessa and James are a fabulously fun and gorgeous newlywed couple, they were totally up for the adventure of exploring the jungle, cenote and beach of our paradise :)
As a photographer and a lover of the natural world around me, I have always been intrigued by aerial photography. With my drone I am free to discover a new world. It’s a magical and refreshing feeling for an artist to have. As technology leapfrogs itself with new innovations, the photography / video / image making industry is a super duper place to be living right now.
Flying in the Riviera Maya has been a special privilege for me. In the video, I was so impressed by how natural and connected James and Lenessa were and how their body language shows it. Their emotions and reactions are not faked and one would think they went to professional modeling school to look this good. — Matt
