Every love story usually starts out the same - boy and girl meet, they fall in love and get married. But it’s that middle part, the part about how they fell in love that is always different. The beginning of the story and the end might be the same, but the journey that you take to get there is what really makes it a love story.
WHAT IS A COUPLES SESSION - and why everyone should have one.
Capturing couples, at every stage of their story, from engagement to weddings to anniversary shoots to just-because-I-love-you shoots, is my happy place.
But with all the fancy-schmany phones, and excellent selfie-cameras - do you really need to book a couples session?
YES, YES, YES - x1000000 times yes. Okay, I'm slightly biased, but let me ask you a question - how many photos of you and your fiance/husbanddo you have, that aren’t selfies or taken by a friend on their phone? And out of those photos - how many do you love? Love enough to print and frame? I’m willing to bet it’s not many. A photo taken by a professional will be 10x better than a selfie on your iPhone!
A couples session means you don't need to worry about the photo-taking bit anymore, and allows you to just focus on each other. Your only job is to snuggle in close, and laugh until your belly aches. And yes, you might feel uncomfortable, awkward, and alllllll the things at the start! We will laugh a lot, I will help direct you and in between those little moments of awkwardness come total gems of authentic interactions that can only happen when two people are in love.
Being able to bottle all those feelings in photographs for you, to hand you a time capsule full of moments that transport you the minute you hold them in your hands; that show what it feels like (not just what it looks like) ... well it’s everything to me. Heck - even just writing that sentence made my heart beat faster!!
