Preparing Your Groom

October 12, 2017

HEY THERE, SWEET FRIEND!

Welcome to my little corner of the web… I’m so glad that you’re here! Take a look around to get a peek at the sweet couples I have the privilege of working with, and the things that make my heart sing.  Need something specific? Feel free to search below!

TAKE A LOOK AROUND

If your fiance is anything like my husband, he probably doesn’t love getting his photo taken quite as much as you do, am I right?

As intimidating as it is for ladies to get in front of the camera, it can be just as much for your man!  However, he does it because he loves you and therefore cares about what you care about! He knows that images are ultimately something that he’ll appreciate afterwards! However, that doesn’t mean he’s thrilled by the thought.

So here are a few tips that you can use to put him at ease:

 

  1.  Show him one of your favorite sessions that you’ve seen on the blog!

    It seems simple, but if you can give him an idea of what to expect by visibly showing him what it might look like, it helps!  He’ll know which basic poses we do and he’ll get to see how fun it can be! One of the biggest compliments I receive from my grooms is how natural it feels, and you can see it in images on the blog!

  2. Let him know that he can vocalize anything that makes him uncomfortable!

    This goes for you too, obviously, but anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, your groom can vocalize!  I usually try to check in ahead of time to see what you two are comfortable with – some people are fine with kissing in front of the camera and some aren’t!  Either way is okay, but we just need to know ahead of time :)  And of course, if there’s anything along the way that feels a little off, we can absolutely swap things up! What matters to me most is that you two feel natural and comfortable in front of my lens!

  3. It won’t take as long as he thinks it will!

    I promise to make sure it’s a great experience for y’all and so I try to move quickly so that he enjoys it and it’s not too drawn out!  Trust me, I know that no one, the exception may be a professional model, loves to be in front of the camera longer than they have to be.  So we move around lots to make it feel less like a photo session and more like a walk around the park!

So there ya have it! Three tips to make your groom less apprehensive about our portrait sessions together!

Happy Thursday, friends!!
