Jess & Kurt - Glamorous Couples Photoshoot
Jess and Kurt came to my studio to have a couples portrait photography session.
We thought we would do a mixture of styles for this young couple including some light and airy, natural light looking photography shots to more dramatic glamour style photography where i posed the couple to look and feel more editorial.
So, we started off the shoot with a few natural light candid moment photos between the young couple, creating moments where they can be together and laugh.
We only managed to shoot a couple of shots with this style and shooting technique as we started the shoot quite late and the sun was going down quite fast. However, we managed to get some stunning photos. Seriously how cute is this couple?
So now the sun has completely disappeared, i decided to shoot the remainder of the shoot with my studio lighting equipment.
We decided at this point to try a more glamour/editorial style so I posed the couple to suit the style they wanted.
We then did some photography featuring Jess, where she really came out of her comfort zone to create some extraordinary photos.
My main goal as a photographer is capturing my clients at their very best, I love it when I show them photo I have just taken and they smile, jump up and down and scream with excitement, my personal favourite is when their jaw hits the floor in shock and they look at you and say
“OMG, is that really me? I cannot believe I look that good!”
There is no greater feeling than making someone feel really good about themselves.
For the next set of images i decided to go with them in a black and white edit. Black and white photography is a beautiful style, especially when you want to create a dramatic feel to the photo, it also gives a sense of elegance to the image, and especially with the contrasting light and dark, i prefer the black and white edited version of this set of photos.
This turned out to be a huge success of a photoshoot. I really cannot choose a favourite image from the whole day.
It was also great to be able to spend some quality time with a couple without any distractions and really bring the best out in them and more importantly, have them say it was an amazing experience, they loved every minute of it and can’t wait to do it again.
If this is something you would want to do with your partner, or maybe for yourself I would love to help you. You may even have it as a surprise for your hubby to be and place a naughty photo inside his wedding suit on the morning of the wedding day labelled “Something for later ;)”
