Now that you have booked your professional couple photoshoot, it’s time to prepare. This way, you ensure you’re making the most of your session. These tips will come in handy.
- What is the concept of your shoot? What kind of couple are you? Do you love dining out? Perhaps you can always be found hiking somewhere. Answering this question will help you develop the concept for your shoot. For example, if you love the outdoors, it makes sense to have an outdoor shoot.
- Brainstorm outfits. Next, you need to decide what you want to wear. Know that your outfits don’t need to match – this is an outdated concept. Coordinating your outfits is a better alternative if you do want to match in some ways. Make sure that your outfits fit in with the concept of your shoot and aim to wear something you feel comfortable and confident in. The day of your shoot is not the time to wear an outfit for the first time. And depending on the length of your shoot, you can also have an outfit change, so select more than one during the planning process.
- Don’t worry too much about posing. There is no reason for you to practice poses prior to your shoot. It’s fine to have a few ideas that you can share with your photographer, but you don’t need to control the poses on the day of your shoot. Your photographer will guide you to ensure you get posed shots as well as a few candid shot.
- Plan it together. Unless you are planning to propose, a couple photoshoot should be a joint discussion. To make the most of your shoot and ensure you both have fun on the day, plan your shoot together. From the location to your outfits, everything should be a mutual decision.
As you plan your shoot, remember that this is meant to be a positive and memorable experience, so don’t forget to relax and enjoy this time together.
