An Natural Light pre wedding Photo Session
Ting & Jeff (SG) mentioned that they were quite camera shy and were concerned about looking natural in their photos. I easily understood their trepidation. To allay their fears I suggested a natural light session. As I explained it would be just the two of them exploring and in their own way - no lighting techs, hair & makeup - just them and their photographer showing the way. There is minimal directing in hopes that couples simply relax and enjoy the moment.
The Autumn months of Prague is quite beautiful and when you combine that with a couple who are enjoying themselves - and not conscious of the camera - the results always speak for themselves.
For many couples traveling half way around the world for a portrait session in a foreign land can be quite daunting especially if you are doing it only for the pictures. With so much riding on a successful outcome it can cause couples quite a bit of angst. And what if you do not feel comfortable in front of the camera?
Our latest couple Ting & Jeff are two very sweet and extremely camera shy people. As they explained they were quite concerned about looking their best in their very important pre wedding photos. I easily understood their trepidation. To allay their fears I suggested a natural light session. I always explain to couples that these sessions are not about being posed but about capturing how you felt at that moment in time.
These sessions are a bare down approach with no assistants and no waiting to set up gear. It is just two people exploring the best of Prague and in their own way and pace. There is also minimal directing (or posing) in hopes that couples just relax and enjoy the moment. The truth is: not everybody wants to be posed all day, in fact some are hoping for more honest imagery to be captured. They were game.
On a chilly Autumn morning where the sky was still dark, were headed out to explore the very best that Prague has to offer. Our starting location: the Charles Bridge which provided us with a spectacular scene as the colors in the sky changed above us.
The more they experienced the best that Prague has to offer the more they relaxed and became themselves. And yes, we were able to capture some truly beautiful posed portraits that they are proud of.
