Let’t forget all you have ever though about Engagement session, the stiff and posed photos you imagined at the park (even if we do go to a park!).
Couples sessions are about documenting you and this time in your lives. They are a time to connect, laugh a lot and be yourselves with occasional hand-holding and kissing while I try to capture some photos of all these!
In a session I will mostly give direction, less posing, my purpose is to capture your real smiles, those moments when you are perfectly comfortable with each other . I will do a couple of shots looking at the camera, but mostly I will be looking for candid shots and ask you to love each other 🙂
Photos are like memories
- Most importantly, to have these awesome pictures of yourselves. You will have unique pictures that are way better than the ones you take with your phone, and less formal than the ones you will have from your wedding in your wedding attire.
Session are fun!
- You will have a good time. I promise . Even if you are nervous, your nervous laughs at the beginning are always fun to capture too! It is a great excuse for you to be all smoochy with your favorite person . It is a great time to reminiscence about your relationship and be all about you two, how cool is that?
Photo sessions are sort of a rehearsal
- There is a practical use for the engagement sessions. Think of it as a rehearsal shoot. This is a real good reason to get your portraits because it lets you “prepare” and get the feel of the experience before your wedding day with me as your photographer. It lets you look into the process and see how you feel around the camera and how you “look” in the camera.
Get to know each other!
- You will get to know how your photographer works and the photographer will get to know how you are . This allows you to feel more comfortable with having me around all day during your wedding day, and then trusting even more in the final result! Overall you will have a more relaxed experience during your big day. I spend this time getting to know you, ask more about your story, and trying to capture your personalities at their best!
What else should I know about taking photos?
I will send tips , information on what to (not) bring and clothing advice for your session. We’ll cover it all and be prepared.
The most important thing is that you know this is all about you. Seriously! ♥
Go for it and have an amazing time.
