HOW COUPLES CAN GET THE MOST OUT OF A LONDON COUPLE PHOTOSHOOT

When booking a portrait session, think about who you want to be photographed with. Your partner in crime is the one that I can hear you say? Who doesn’t want his or her partner’s legacy captured as an image displayed in their home? A photo session with your significant other is a great way to document moments and memories that you can cherish forever. Here are some helpful tips on how to get the most from your next portrait session with your partner!

1. WHAT’S IN IT FOR HIM/HER

First things first, if you want to have him/her on board, the question is whether or not he will join your cause. Explain what this is about, and why it’s essential for you two, i.e., why are you doing this together.

  • To celebrate your anniversary
  • Create a legacy for your kids
  • Celebrating a particular moment in your life
  • Because you don’t have any pictures of you as a couple since your wedding
  • To celebrate your love!

Don’t forget that you are two in the process while explaining why this is important for you. Tell them that how fun it will be.

2. MATCHING STYLE & OUTFITS

There are many tips I could give you for your photoshoot, but one of the most important is to ensure that you both have outfits that match. It will help achieve maximum style and creativity in all photographs, so make sure they don’t clash – either formal or casual on either side! It is something that we will discuss in more detail during your styling and concept consultation. You might also want to think about the type of images you want to match your interior. For example, if your style is classic, you might want to stick to a formal style; if your style is more contemporary, a more casual style might better match your home.

3. DON’T BE SHY

I understand you might feel a little uncomfortable with a camera around – just be yourself! What I will ask is to dance your heart out. Act like there’s no one photographing you. Have fun together in front of the camera lens; show me how much love means to you. As a portrait photographer, I want to capture genuine expressions and emotions and you letting loose is the way to do it. he more relaxed everyone is. The more fun you’ll have during your session for incredible results. The last thing you want is to look back on your portraits and wish you’ve opened up a bit more.

4. MAKE HIM/HER PART OF THE SELECTION PROCESS AT THE VIEWING SESSION

A portrait session doesn’t end with the photo shoot. You want to make sure that your partner is involved in choosing final images and prints, so offer them a chance! It’s super important you both are happy with what portraits will be chosen as keepsakes for family memories or just because they’re fantastic portraits of you both.

A photo session with your partner can be a great way to capture the memories and moments in life that make you two special. Fortunately, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to photography. I can help plan an extraordinary session explicitly tailored to your needs – from location scouting, wardrobe planning, timeline coordination, and more! Contact me today for a complimentary consultation; we would love nothing more than to help create beautiful images of your special bond.
