November 09, 2018
Are you looking for a novel way to spend some quality time with your partner? A couple’s photo shoot could be just the thing! Here are a few ways in which a couple’s photo shoot can actually help to strengthen your relationship:
IT'S A WONDERFUL WAY TO COMMEMORATE A SPECIAL EVENT
Couple’s photo shoots are a great way to commemorate special events like anniversaries, proposals and birthdays – it serves as a mile marker along the road that you walk with that special someone and one day you’ll be able to look back on it and remember all the sweet and sour that went along with it. That doesn’t mean that a photoshoot has to be scheduled around a big event, however, some of the sweetest shoots we’ve seen were done just because the couple wanted to frame an ordinary moment along their life’s journey.
IT ALLOWS YOU TO REALLY SEE YOUR PARTNER FOR ONCE
The rigors and pressures of everyday life can be so all-consuming that we often forget to really look at our partners and appreciate them for who they are. Sure, you kiss them good morning and have a quick chat over dinner, but there is rarely time in our busy schedules to actually sit down and truly connect on that passionate and intimate level that typifies the early part of any new relationship. Recapture that intimacy by scheduling a photo shoot and capturing the essence of what makes you unique as a couple.
IT'S A REASON TO GET ALL DRESSED UP
If there is one thing that will get anyone out of a funk, it’s having a reason to get all gussied up and head out to show off yourself and your beautiful partner to the world at large. A photo shoot is a good a reason as any to get your hair styled, splurge on professional makeup or treat yourself to a hot towel shave. Best of all – you’ll have the pictures to keep forever. Always remember, you’ll never be quite as young as you are right now!
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO ENSURE THAT YOU GET THE MOST OF YOUR COUPLE'S SHOOT
Choose your location with care. You want your setting to be a place where both you and your partner are comfortable, and your photographer has plenty of scope to play around with different backgrounds and light.
Listen to the photographer! These guys know what they are talking about. When they tell you to alter your pose or turn towards the light source, there’s a good reason and you’ll end up looking lovely in the pictures.
Wear something comfortable. Sure, you want to look your best, but if your shoes pinch or your pants are too tight, you are going to get cranky and this will be evident in the pictures. Rather choose a stylish outfit that fits well and in which you feel totally comfortable and at ease.
And there you have it – a few good reasons to invest in a couple’s photo shoot and some tips to ensure that you get the most bang for your buck!
