The number one comment we hear from couples is “We don’t like ‘posed’ photos!” and we get it – no one wants to be standing around for hours taking staged and awkward looking photos. Our goal is to create some beautiful, timeless portraits as well as those precious moments that naturally unfold.
Whilst most photographers showcase the very best portraits and the ‘WOW’ shots on their websites (which tend to be more structured or posed) the actual amount of those images is a very small percentage from an entire wedding day.
You’ll notice that a lot of our own images are portraits, some are naturally posed, some are candid, but they are usually focused on a certain stylistic aspect to create something that is visually appealing… but the reality is, most of your wedding day is captured in a completely natural way.
When it comes to the couples portraits, we will give enough direction so you feel comfortable yet still allowing the images to remain natural and relaxed.
The best advice we can give is to make time to interact with your loved ones on your wedding day. We want to capture special moments but we need the opportunity to be created by the two of you… and when you create those moments… magic happens!
