When it comes to posing at elopement weddings – I have 5 helpful facts

elopement, Inspiration

Many of you couples are asking me for fun loving, laughters and no posing photos.
I wanted to share some of my ideas, bought sand handful of tips for you.

Because, to be honest I’m not a magician…. You May think I am as many of the couples tell me that this is what they want, (as if I just could swing my wand and hope for the best.)

This post has MY recipe for these un -posing photos of laughter, silliness and authentic-ness

…and it starts with…

  1. YOU two. It’s true, it does. When you’re at ease and trust your photographer you’ll feel more free in the photos. You’ll be able to have fun, joke around, be a bit silly without thinking too much about how you look.

4. Make sure your family and friends stay away from the portrait session. I can tell you that getting at ease and authentic is much harder with a crowd (likely with phones in their hands).

Being alone during the portrait session is a really good way to be at ease and relaxed

5. Do not hold back with the emotions. Who cares about make up when you’re marrying the love of your life. Cry, weep, laugh and just be in the emotions that comes on your day.
