Since yesterday was Valentine’s Day, let’s talk about photographing couples.
Capturing portraits of couples can be quite interesting and exciting.
We photograph couples:
as part of engagement photo sessions – engagement portraits are couple portraits
wedding portraits (couples, not groups) – formal, less formal, and captured throughout the day of the wedding–getting ready, ceremony, cutting the cake, leaving the party, etc.
portraits of couples at anniversary ceremonies – perhaps to be included in family albums, etc.
casual (and/or posed) couple portraits captured at events, parties, while traveling, just for fun, etc. photographed in studio or on location; these could also be one image or a short sequence of images, etc.
