Mati says he shoots “almost exclusively” with natural light and particularly likes backlighting his couples with the sun. He had just a few minutes to make this portrait session work before the sun would disappear again, so he quickly positioned the newlyweds in the rays of light.
“I do not remember exactly who had the idea, but we tried to imitate the legendary Dirty Dancing jump,” Mati says. “I think the two succeeded in their individual way. Since I wanted to freeze the movement, I chose a shutter speed of 1/500. I created a kind of silence in the picture, and now it looks like a statue that stands there for eternity, full of strength, affinity and love. Maybe a good print for their living room.”
