A very nice portrait experience with the lovely Victoria & Ashley, a freezing cold February afternoon at Lake Meadows park in Billericay.
Prompts for creating a fun time on your pre-wedding portrait experience and/or wedding day
Just one of my techniques for creating natural smiles, laughs and a memorable time. I enjoy working with couples of all ages, whether that's on a pre-wedding portrait experience or on the wedding day itself. I prefer to create a situation rather than posing, and I do this by using my tried and tested prompts. The prompts are light-hearted games and suggestions designed to put you at ease, to encourage a smile and to create a few laughs. The wonderful couple are Amy & Liam, more of their images can be seen here.
Cold, cold cold. I could barely feel my fingers. I'm so looking forward to waving bye-bye to winter. I don't know about you but me, I'm solar powered, I need the Sun! I need to be doing these portrait shoots with my knees out in a T-shirt, not with multiple layers and frostbite. Anyway, we had fun, the shoot was cut short a little due to the weather, but we did well. When it came to editing I had a strong preference for black and white rather than colour, I was feeling brave and went all-in, everything black and white.
Once I'd sorted out the pronunciation of Cerys, Keh-rris? I'm still not 100%; we got cracking and enjoyed a lovely little portrait experience. I do put the fellas on the spot a little bit, nothing scary, just a few life event questions and silly games. Billy did well; I was quite impressed.
An incredible portrait experience that took place in the magical Norsey Wood, Billericay.
