“It didn’t feel like we were posing it was really natural I loved it.” -Kiru

Ever wonder what it’s like behind the scenes at my photo sessions? It’s common when I meet with couples for the first time for them to say “We’re not…you know…like those couples in your photos. We’re nervous to be photographed.” Thing is, so is everyone! There isn’t a single couple I’ve photographed who didn’t think and feel the same thing. But I have my magic ways (insert maniacal laugh here) and so it’s my job to get the best out of you and give you a rockin’ good time while we’re at it.

Check out this little clip to show you how I got Kethes & Kiru to flash each other those gorgeous looks and have a truly good time, not just for the camera.

Psst…you can see the main film and stills of this session here —> Fairytale surprise proposal caught on camera

These kinds of sessions are wonderful to celebrate your engagement or commemorate your relationship no matter what stage of life you’re in. It can be a powerful experience for couples who have been together for a long time and I’ve had great success with couples of all ages. Having been married for a long time, myself, having photography sessions with my husband has been a powerful part of discovering more about ourselves and experiencing eachother in a new way without children hanging off of us. Afterall, our marriage is the cornerstone of our family!

I assure you…a session with me is probably not what you imagine it will be. I would love to capture your spark as a couple. You can learn more about my method here. Check out my prices here.
