Often times during the couple shoot, the first few minutes/moments are the trickiest with the couple. It’s the “warm-up” phase and it’s totally normal. The couple is getting used to the way we work, being in front of the camera, and well, finally enjoying these first quiet moments together. It’s understandably a bit weird in the beginning (for them).
So when we start our shoots, mentally we are already prepared that the first few shots may not always make it to the final gallery. We’ve just become accustomed to this, but what does happen near the end is just… magical. By the end of the shoot, our couple is nicely warmed up, romanced, and comfortable with each other. That’s when we take photos like this.
These close, intimate, soft, gentle-moving images a vast in their own way and meaning. We’ve built up trust with our couple and they’ve forgotten that awkwardness of being photographed – and instead, they’re focused on each other and the moments and we are but ‘music’ in the background.
