RMP | COUPLES SESSION
A couple's photo session is defined as a session with a maximum of two people being photographed.
Can include animals and items of sentiment.
If you have children and would like a session including them too,
please let me know and I can send through family session info.
WHAT DO WE WEAR? | WHERE DO WE HAVE THE PHOTOS? | HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? | DO I HAVE TO STAND AND SMILE?
Couple's sessions are a time for you to document who you are as a couple, where you are at in life, how and why your relationship began. It is a time for intimacy and playfulness. Your session can be as simple as a stroll through your favourite park, sipping a cup of coffee in your own home, or it can be three outfit changes and a dip in the ocean!
My approach is very candid, very low key. I want you to enjoy this photo session, I want it to be a celebration of your relationship. We pick a spot, go for a wander. I will ask you to do certain things, stand a certain way, and then I photograph the in-between poses... thats my favourite. I love it when my couples are up for something a bit different; sitting or laying on the ground, wading out in to the ocean, boudoir or tasteful nudity, dressing up to the nines, incorporating the fur-babies... the list is endless!
Location is entirely up to what you want. I will discuss with you what sort of backdrop you prefer; whether you are more beach, rural or park style. You might have a special spot in mind that you would like to check out. Or a spot that offers a couple of different backdrop options (beach on one side, country scenes on the other). If you don't have anywhere in mind I will suggest something that will work for what you are thinking so don't stress too much!
The biggest question I get asked is "what do we wear?" and I find this is easiest answered by asking couples how they see their photos displayed... Your photos can be used for either formal or informal use. Some couples like to use these for their save the date cards or wedding guest signing book, some prefer to do up a special leather envelope of hand torn prints for their eyes only, your images can also look awesome framed in your home or prettying up your social media account! I want you to feel amazing, like you are preparing a special occasion... because it IS a special occasion, and we ARE celebrating!
FOR ENGAGED COUPLES - CHANNEL YOUR WEDDING DAY LOOK. While your engagement shoot doesn't have to feel overly bridal, wearing similar colours to what you will on your big day may help you to get a feel for how your colour palette is going to photograph. It also allows for your engagement photos to compliment your wedding photos when they come along, rather than be going in two different directions. Consider playing with texture: sheer material, Cotton-based fabrics like eyelet lace, crochet and Swiss dot all have dimension that shows up well on camera and gives your outfit an instant vintage twist. I also am a massive fan of beautiful prints (think Spell, Arnhem, Auguste, House of Skye, Indian Summer Co, Jaase...) as they photograph so well and can be a bit of fun if you want some colour, that will also look amazing for black and white photos. Guys, you will look great in chinos and a nice plain shirt, even a blazer or a textured jumper if its a bit cooler weather or you want to spice it up a bit.
