Meet Tom and Georgina. They are getting married in a few weeks and hired me to take their pictures.
Then the doubts set in…. It seems they have never had their picture taken by a professional photographer and were a little unsure what to expect. No problem – that’s why I run “try before you buy” or “engagement sessions”. It’s a chance to make sure that we get on, that you feel comfortable in front of the camera, to practise and to get some beautiful pictures!
We spent an hour taking shot after shot of formal portraiture with just the right fill and key light. Nah….anybody who knows me knows that isn’t remotely true. We just messed about for an hour. They came over yesterday to view the pictures and were pretty impressed with them! Because of course we weren’t really just messing about. We were relaxing, getting to know each other, forgetting about the camera and taking pictures. Which pretty much sums up my approach. If you want the pictures to look fun then you’d better be having fun.
Their pictures will be in the gallery for the next 4 weeks or so – go take a peek while they are there.
