Couples portrait sessions are a relaxed lifestyle session for the couple, whether its just to capture their love story in pictures or get comfortable being photographed before their wedding day. The couple also have the opportunity to work with me prior to their wedding. Plus you are also starting your collection of professional family photos.
Most couples I photograph have never had their photo taken professionally before, and it’s common to hear couples say “I’m awkward in front of the camera“. So the couple aren’t left standing there not knowing what to do, I do give directions to help the couple feel at ease whilst still capturing them in a natural way. My approach to photography is one as teamwork between the photographer and the couple, but all I ask of my couples is to have fun and trust me.
As a professional wedding and portrait photographer, I am looking to capture the connection between the couple. Love and affection is shown in many ways, and it’s your connection with your partner that I am seeking to capture, what ever love means to you. Through simple directions, I will help translate your love story into beautiful images.
Trust me, all the couples that have come before you, have had those same nervous feelings about having their photos taken. But you can see throughout my portfolio, that the couples look at ease in front of the camera and utterly in love, results from years of experience specialising in photographing couples from many walks of life.
I would love to capture you and your partner at this exciting time in your journey together.
Couples & engagement sessions can be booked as a separate session, added to your wedding package or complimentary with select wedding photography packages.
What’s included in your couples or engagement photography session?
A couples session ranges from 1-2 hours in a location that has meaning to you or somewhere in nature that reflects your personalities. It could be in a forest, the countryside, at the beach at sunset to capture those golden rays, or at your favourite cafe or even in your home! A location is just a backdrop or scene in your story, with the emphasis on personality, having a laugh and you two together. The session is more like us hanging out as friends and I take a few snaps along the way. All good fun!
From the lifestyle portrait session, couples receive a stack of edited high-resolution digital files suitable for printing and sharing on social media.
