I decided to prepare a guide for wedding couples (or future wedding couples) on how to make an engagement session or an outdoor wedding photoshoot and have fun at the same time. For me, making an outdoor session is a less stressful element, I am more concerned with what to do to make you feel good in front of the camera. Although it is all quite closely related to each other. If I relax you, you will feel at ease. When you feel at ease, I work better.
Each of us is different, we all have a better or worse day. If we are doing a wedding photoshoot on a day when you are melancholy – show it! When you have a goof, good day come out! Be real as you are and how you feel. Don’t hide your emotions, fears or even silly laughter. I can capture even this laugh in pictures! Let me go deep into your mood, intimacy or super humor. Be yourself! I want to see the truth in you, only such photos make sense. Real emotions are welcome
Think we’re friends. Since you are in such a session, it means that we liked each other. So you have nothing to fear. You have to realize that I am here (in session) FOR YOU.
I want to create a great souvenir for you. So focus on yourself, the situation, and I’ll do the rest. Never stick to the thought of “what will she think” just give it 100% without worrying about such nonsense!
An outdoor wedding photoshoot on another day has only advantages. We are independent of the weather. We make an appointment, but depending on the weather we can reschedule. It is especially important when your wedding falls on months with a slightly worse weather;) Like September – November or March-April. You should then have a margin of time and choose the weather in which you will feel good to take photos. Penetrating cold and falling rain, although they may turn out interesting in the pictures, can also take away your will to play and the photo session will turn out to be an unpleasant duty.
Take only what is necessary to the sessions. Do not take a few bags of clothes, cosmetics or any other items with you. Each item or handbag will limit your mobility, and will also deprive you of the possibility of taking spontaneous photos, when you think that at a given moment I put the camera aside.
On the day of the wedding open air / wedding photoshoot or engagement session, try not to plan too many duties. Spend some time together. It will slowly introduce you to even more intense contact during the session. Relax, lyin
Here, the advice is mainly for women. When it comes to hair, loose hair looks best. Thanks to them, we can easily obtain the dynamics of photos. Makeup is, of course, advisable, it would be good if it is professional, but it is not a requirement. The most important thing is to feel good and comfortable.
