And As you have gone through all the reasons to have a couples portrait shoot at your wedding, here are some tips that will help you plan the perfect couples portrait.
- Communicate with your photographer
This is an essential step as you and your photographer should be on the same page for your couple's portrait photography. The photographer should be well aware of what all do you expect from the shoot so that he/she can plan their part accordingly.
- Beating The Time Pressure
This is an issue that is faced by most couples as they believe that a couples portrait is going to take up a lot of their time. As photographers, we know that these shoots don't usually take more than 30-45 minutes. But if you are a couple who has planned something special for their couples portrait, you can always get the shot before or after your hectic wedding day.
- Don't Keep Your Guests Waiting
And even if you are planning to get the shoot on the same day, you can just let the people know, so that they don't get tired just waiting for you to show up.
- Relax and Be Yourself -
Last but not least, this is one of the most important directions for you as most couples get nervous and conscious when it comes to portrait photography. But let us tell you that nothing good has ever come out of a couples portrait shoot where the couple is nervous. So be happy and enjoy this as much as you can as this is a very special moment for you and your partner both.
