You’ve taken the big decision to go for a couples photo session with a professional photographer who’ll give you some guidelines on what to wear. Your personal style, (whether you and your partner wants to go for a natural look or dressing up), should always be taken into consideration.
The central theme during a couple shoot, is the love two people have for each other, the connection, the closeness … the romance.
But what is the most important ingredient your photographer is looking for?
Expression in your eyes!
It’s been said that “the eyes are the windows of the soul”. It’s not a lie.
The connection between you and your partner become immediately visible through your eyes. Let your photographs portray this. It doesn’t matter how good your pose is or if you fake a smile. Your eyes will have the last say.
So, how do you get that million dollar love expression in your eye if you are nervous in front of a camera?
1. Get adequate rest the night before the shoot
2. Be confident and spontaneous
3. Trust your photographer
4. Take a deep breath … and relax into your partners’ presence. Focus only on the love you have for each other.
5. Have fun
Your photographer will encourage a relaxed atmosphere and compliment you and your partner as he / she captures memorable pictures. Normally the first few images are geared to get everybody in a relaxed mindset and to set the tone of the session. A welcomed few jokes normally relieve the tension.
But your photographer cannot give you the expression in your eyes.
Whatever style you chose for your couples photo session, the magic expression shines through, whether you are serious or break out in laughter … it will create pictures that you’ll treasure for the rest of your life. Guaranteed.
So, go “beam” that love!
