Okay, so I want to let you in on a little secret, you ready?
It’s not a natural thing to be photographed.
We might all be carrying a camera in our pockets, and we long to capture our memories – but flip, it can be downright awkward to be in-front of the camera!!
So if you are nervous, or freaked out – that’s totally normal!!
So I’ve got a few tips for you, to help you get the most out of your couple shoot.
You were probably expecting me to say – wear this or do that (I’ll give some more practical tips in a sec!)
The most important thing I want you to know before you join me on a photoshoot: it’s about the moments. Not the made-up, fake and awkward stuff. The real moments (what he actually whispers in your ear, how he pulled you close, how you feel – those moments)
The longer I’ve been a profession a third wheel, the more I believe people don’t just need pretty photos, they need beautiful moments.
So I want you to let go of your expectation, and what you think ‘should’ happen, and embrace the season you are in. Going for a photoshoot is about remembering, to document and to be drawn back to what actually happened (laughter, tears, rain, sunshine – whatever). It’s about celebrating who you are, and the season you are in.
Jip, what you wear matters. Have you nails done (if you like how it feels) and wear something that makes you feel amazing. It’s important that you are comfortable and feel like you.
PRO TIP: Plain colours are usually more timeless, and bright patterns can be distracting.
When you book, I’ll send you a proper guide to help you pick what you feel reflects your vibe the most. (Don’t worry, I’ve got you!)
Your connection matters. Make a day of celebrating your relationship. Sleep in if you can, go to your favourite coffee shop, make eye contact, hug a lot. Enjoy each others company before your photoshoot.
This helps you to connect with each other before the shoot, and carries over into your photos as well.
When it comes to the actual ‘what should we do in-front of the camera’ part.
I’ve got you! My job is to help you to connect also, your job, is to just do you.
