Why Photographers Should Get to Know You Both Before a Couple Photoshoot

When a couple requests for a photoshoot, they are inviting a photographer into their lives. Spending time together before the session allows the photographer to learn your couple story, your personalities and be able to picture or plan out how the photoshoot would go on the day itself. It is easier for a photographer to catch every intimate moment, every touch, and every look. The couple will find it easier to strike natural poses if they feel like they are with someone they know, and not a stranger.

At some point, the photographer will be taking photos of the couple’s reactions to each other, whether it is a smile, laughter, or contentment. It will no longer be about the pictures, but their feelings, and all these will be captured for the frame.

For example, if you both love nature, you should choose a place that you are both most comfortable visiting and would like to have it as a background for your shots.
