TIPS FOR YOUR COUPLE PHOTOSHOOT IN BORA BORA
POSING GUIDE FOR COUPLES
Posing is not a natural thing for humans, hence the question, what is natural posing? Well, natural posing is when I capture the instinctive actions of you. You can choose to walk or just sit together holding hands, or just deeply gaze into each other’s eyes. It’s about simply enjoying the moment with a lot of natural expressions and gestures. Natural poses will come out on their own. Just interact as you do when you are alone and I will capture those silent vulnerable moments.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PHOTOSHOOT?
Nothing is more exceptionally beautiful than adorable couple poses. Couples seek a professional photographer to capture their personal stories that they can share with their friends and family. However, before shooting your session, read all the basics of posing from what to wear to which poses are a thumbs up as beautiful couple poses.
What do I wear
What to wear during the shoot is a big point of confusion for most couples. You must remember this day is going to be documented for your whole life. Hence, this day is more about your emotions rather than heavily priced clothes. Therefore choose whatever makes you comfortable.
You can come up with a formal dress, or you can choose an informal one. Many successful photoshoots with adorable couple poses were captured with couples wearing beachwear. Hence, it is all about your comfort and the theme you chose for the photo shoot. But, if you are puzzled then I am happy to assist you to figure out what to wear. Even you can bring some options with you, and we can mutually decide before the shoot.
• POSE NATURALLY
• DON’T KEEP A CHECK ON YOUR EMOTIONS
• BE COMFORTABLE
• EMBRACE THE SPONTANEOUS ELEMENTS
Don’t keep a check on your emotions
• FORGET me
Don’t hold back anything on your photoshoot day. It is all about being yourself to make some beautiful couple poses. I am not there to judge whether you are all goofy or serious or introverted, I want you to set the tone and mood for the shoot. I want to experience all your emotions, your little moments. I am there to capture you as you are. Even if you cry out emotions while posing then also I will only capture that beautiful emotion of yours rather than frowning upon. So open up and relay it all to me.
Forget about me being there. Completely embrace the spontaneous elements. Enjoy the blowing wind, embrace the rocks around, the quietness. The beautiful couple poses are born in those little in-between moments. Accordingly, you need to be easily mobile so that I can capture all those spontaneous moments. So, bringing bags with things you think you might need is not going to be useful for you.
Forget me, forget the world, forget everything! We are not there to capture some charming pictures. It’s about you, it’s about capturing a momentous stage in your life, and I am just there to document this stage of your life, your love. So forget photography and simply enjoy your time. However, I’ll be as low key and laid back as the wind around you.

Your session should be fun and a good time. So feel free to be you! Plus, laughing will get you relaxed way sooner and make the rest easier.
Soft and neutral colors work best. Choose soft or neutral colors for the majority of your outfits.
Don’t forget your hands! People tend to not to know where to put their hands in photos and end up with them hanging awkwardly at their sides.Put them around each other, touch your love’s face or brush her hair out of her face.
Focus on each other! I don’t take a lot of camera aware photos, so just focus on each other. Look at each other, kiss, cuddle, look into one direction together, just not at the camera. I’ll let you know when I need you looking at me.
TIPS FOR YOUR COUPLE SESSION
Here are a few tips that’ll make life easier for you and me. My couple sessions are really relaxed, we’ll walk around talking, enjoying most beautiful place on earth .
Try not to be too matching, think to complement. If one of you wears something really colorful or with large patterns, go for small patterns or neutral with the other one.
Prepare to hug, kiss, embrace, talk to each other, look at each other. You will do this all the time.
Hold moments! Don’t rush from pose to pose or moment to moment. Give me the chance to capture it.
I often zoom with my feet as I always shoot prime (non-zoom) lenses, so if I come closer or move, it’s usually because you’re doing great!
