The Portrait Session
"I hate taking photos! I always feel so awkward, and never know what to do!" Do not worry, I have you covered. Whether you have the ability to own a room the second you walk into it, or feel more at home on the sidelines, my goal is to capture you.
- Jacquie and Damon
Instead of working through a long list of "wedding poses", and contorting you into strange scenarios where you could insert a different couple with no change to the end photograph, we work together to find what is right for you. Your portrait session will be a lot of finding the best possible light, and allowing you the moments to yourselves.
"I don't know what to do with my hands!" I pinky promise, it feels so natural on the wedding day (and I will absolutely let you know if something you are doing looks strange!) The joy you will feel will shine through every image. Couple frequently comment on how the portrait session enabled them a few moments to take in all of the events of the day thus far, and enjoy the new feeling of being married.
Locations - Where Do We Shoot?
These portraits are an important part of your wedding day, where the heck do we take them? Consider a few things when setting up the location to photograph in.
Where do you imagine your portraits? Are you beach people, or do you feel most at home in the city? Did you have the beautiful greenery of a park, or grandiose architecture in mind?
All of these things come into play when choosing the perfect spot. Keep in mind, the light at the location comes into play much more than the background. Some backgrounds look incredibly cool to the eye, but the camera sees it differently. Some spots look totally crazy from afar, but come out beautiful due to the light. The image above was taken inside a mall of local artisans, but it was perfect for Liane and Wendy's creative wedding.
Not sure what you would like? Let me know! I would be happy to help you chose the right place for you both.
