Everyone is the same.
Whether you absolutely love having your photo taken or absolutely hate it, having your photo taken in a natural manner is completely alien and is extremely unnerving for the first 20 minutes. Many confident couples want to conform to smiling at the camera and shy couples often feel lost and put on the spot. I do not pose you, however, I have to direct you in order to create the shot, you will then do the rest by laughing at the unusual concept of being incredibly close to one another in a public space. It’s these in-between moments that I will capture. We will go to your favourite beach, woodland, park etc. and walk, talk and shoot resulting in different backdrops and therefore a variety of photos.
The process of feeling very much on the spot for the first 20 minutes is exactly the same for EVERY couple I have ever photographed. I personally know how awkward it can feel as ironically, I hate having my photo taken! I will aim to capture shots of you and your fiancé together in a romatic yet relaxed way – laughing and genuinely enjoying each other’s company! Getting used to the camera is the main reason I include pre-wedding couple photos in my wedding package!
