I'm not sure if I consider myself a helluva romantic, but photographing love seems to really bring that side out in me. I truly enjoy getting to shoot with couples and create honest, and sometimes silly, moments of pure cuteness in front of my lens.
Christine had made it abundantly clear that her and her partner, Bryan, don't like being photographed and it was going to be weird. But I have yet to actually be deterred by anyone who says that to me.
Psst, everyone says that! And they are ALWAYS wrong! Case in point:
I would call myself fairly quirky and silly, so a couples session with me won't be too posed, too cheesy, or stiff. I will talk a lot, give you weird prompts (this shot above is the aftermath of one of those prompts), and try to pull out as many candid laughs as I can. Love is fun, silly, messy, and pure, and I think your photos should reflect that, at least most of the time.
Don't get me wrong, I like a nice posed photo thrown in there though.
In the end, it's most important that you enjoy yourself during a photo session. And I personally have always enjoyed myself too, and hope my clients have as much fun as I do. Christine & Bryan were a blast to shoot with, and I am in love with the photos we captured on that day.
Let me know what you think!
