When shooting couples, we are often moving around them and capturing angles that are wide, close up, mid range and what have you. We do this because not only does it help increase the chances of coming back with an absolute banger shot, it also keeps your eyes and inspiration active the whole time. You’re constantly looking for things when you move; wide shots (what to include, what to exclude, etc…), close ups (what details, what movements, gestures). All of these things.
For this shot, we moved right up close after we had them get real intimate with each other and we simply asked the girl to bring her hand up to the guy’s neck/cheek; but she instinctively played with his lips. It was perfect; we didn’t really need to correct or change anything and instead, we let them have their moment as is.
