4 The Couple Portraits
This is the part where we have a grand time!
The couple portraits are important at a wedding because they capture the love between you and at times are the only professional photos you’ll ever take. These are the photos you’ll hang on your wall and share with your kids one day. They are a cherished keepsake that you will treasure for years to come. This section is filled with information and we recommend that you both read it.
We divide our couple portraits into two sessions. The first session is 45 minutes long. We usually start it about 30minutes after you open the aperitivo. However, if your aperitivo is very short we may recommend doing the couple portraits directly after the ceremony. The second session is 15 minutes long and will be 30 minutes before sunset. This allows us to get those romantic backlit photos that everyone loves!
We ask for an hour in total for your couple portraits for a number of reasons. To name a few:
It may take some time for you to get comfortable in front of the camera. It’s our job to help you relax, shake out all the nerves and help you forget about the camera so you can be your authentic selves.
We want to tell a love story and that requires multiple angles, scenes and poses. You also want to make the best of your location investment and use of all of the beautiful spots it offers.
Photos can take some time to set up. We have to set the scene, find the right lighting and angles, and direct you at the same time. This can be stressful not just for us but for you too if we only have a short time to do it. Remember, it’s a domino effect. The more calm we are, the better the experience will be and the photos will naturally be more beautiful.
But whether we have 10 minutes or one whole hour, we will always do our best to deliver the best experience for you.
