A really sweet couple and great lighting is sometimes what a wedding photographer can only dream of, but when this perfect union occurs, I can tell you the excitement when downloading the photos that night after the photoshoot… I’m looking at the screen of my iMac with a broad smile on my face and saying in my heart, YES! YES! This is the kind of relaxed portraiture that I like.
I always do whatever it takes to make a wedding couple understand that I’m not pointing an AK47 to make you freeze in your steps, but just a tiny, sweet l’l gadget that can capture all those special moments so that you will remember them for a lifetime.
Sometimes, the personality of a bride and groom does play a major part in getting beautiful relaxed portraits like this, but generally to most couples who are not used to being in front of the camera, all you need to do is just relax and be yourself… just imagine as if you are looking at a small kid asking for Christmas candy from you, and you will get the best out of the very short time you spend with this stranger that you may not have met til your wedding day itself!
Mark & Fiona, you make my day, mates!
Finally, to all my blog readers, here’s wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
