Engagements and Couple Portrait Sessions
I love photographing engagement sessions and couple portraits.
I enjoy getting to know the couples I will be working with, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, without the stresses of the big day. These works also if you are not planning a wedding, maybe you wants only to document your union, so, I’m here for this!
One of the best ways to get to know someone is to watch them and listen to them. I learn so much about my couples during the engagement sessions, and I use that as my foundation to photograph them on their wedding day. I enjoy watching a couple and seeing how they interact with one another. We are all created so uniquely, but I think that we all have this desire to love and to be loved. I enjoy seeing that played out in the people that I have the privilege to photograph, and this makes almost automatically better photographs.
Even if your is a destination wedding, plan to have a photographer at least the day before, it may be enough an hour to create something beautiful and to know each other a little better.
A couple of questions you might ask:
1 – What can we do with the photos of these engagements and portrait sessions?
Here are some ideas on what you can do with the photos to help you create a unique and memorable wedding:
- Save The Date Cards
- Wedding invitations
- Your wedding website, Facebook page, blog
- Custom guestbooks
- Prints and canvases to display on the signing table
- An album or to add to your main wedding album for a complete story
2 – We are uneasy in front of the camera, can you help us to pose?
I know it’s easier to say it than to do it, but please don’t worry about being “bad” in front of the camera. I’ve been photographing weddings and engagements for many years, and have photographed hundreds of couples. I can sincerely tell you that not a single one of those couples, no matter how much they swore up and down that they would be, were “terrible” in their pictures. You could be embarrassed and nervous, oh yes, for sure, but getting you to feel less embarrassed and worried is part of my job, I promise to do everything in my power to make you feel at ease and comfortable during your engagement or portrait sessions.
