ENJOY THE DAY FROM START TO FINISH
How do you picture your ideal day with your partner? Does it start by getting coffee at a coffee shop and enjoying each other's company? Maybe sitting on the couch binging your favorite show together or going on your favorite hike? Whatever it is, I encourage you do it. During your session, I'm going to ask you both to be your truest selves so I can help tell your actual love story. It won't be just a collection of poses you feel you have to force a smile out for after a long and stressful day at work. I want you both to enjoy each other during your session. So grab a bite to eat, go on a bike ride and SAVOR each other. That way, by the time your session rolls around, you'll be feeling connected, joyful and refreshed
As much as I get fired up about love and capturing people who are in love, the responsibility of getting photos that are authentic to you don't rest merely on me. After you've (hopefully) been able to spend the day together doing what you love, come to your session being open to be silly with each other. Be willing to maybe shed a few tears. Be willing to show what your reactions are to your inside jokes. Be vulnerable. What makes your relationship unique? Show up with that.
Are you sensing a theme here? I want you both to be as connected as possible during the short time I have with you. Unless there is a family/friend emergency, leave your phone, Apple Watch, whatever it may be that distracts you at home. Take an hour or two to fully embrace each other and make each other laugh. The memories you'll create during those minutes will be so much more joyful than worrying about checking your texts every 5 minutes.
BE YOU. CASUAL + FANCY STYLE
Struggling with picking out an outfit for your pictures? I always recommend bringing 2: one outfit you'd wear on a fancy date night and one outfit you'd wear on a casual picnic in the park. Remember to stick to what makes you unique. I want to capture who you both really are!
LOCATION ISN'T EVERYTHING
Stellar locations with the cutest coffee shops are cool but you'd be surprised how the most random places can be the most quaint. The picture on the right above was in front of a wall of a motel that just happened to be nearby but their love and sweet eskimo kisses made the picture so much cuter! All I need is some natural light and we can work with pretty much anything.
My boyfriend and I never had a photoshoot before and we weren't sure what to expect since I'm a photographer always behind the camera but Justine made it so smooth and so comfortable for us! The results of the photos turned out AMAZING! I love her!
