It’s Not as Scary as You Think
Looking natural is wedding photos is every brides desire. Some brides however fear being infront of a camera. In my experience as a wedding photographer on the Gold Coast, I’ve encountered many types of personalities including those that feel very awkward during photo shoots. The truth however is that it’s not as scary as you think.
Don’t feel intimidated by photography, looking natural in your wedding photos is not that hard. A lot of people shy away from cameras because they think they don’t look good in photographs but we believe that everybody can be photogenic. No amount of make-up or posing can match a sincere and loving smile. There’s no reason to worry because we promise you that you will look so amazing that even your harshest critic, yourself, will be a believer afterwards.
The guys, and sometimes the ladies too, might feel that the photography session after the ceremony will be awkward and see it as something that they just have to get through, but we’ll prove you otherwise and show you that it’s actually a fun and memorable experience for you and your partner.
“We felt so comfortable, Corne and Lara guided us into each pose but then just let us be ourselves. There were no forced smiles, lots of laughs though!”
Natural is the best way to go
You don’t have to be a supermodel to look good in photographs. Some people like to practice their best smiles, but your best smile actually comes out when you’re sincerely happy from within. We believe that natural moments are the best sources for great photographs.
In our session, you will do minimal posing and can just be your normal self. We will guide you through each shot and make you feel as comfortable as possible. Our approach is to keep the shoot natural and relaxed in order to create the most beautiful photographs you will ever have.
Connect with each other
We want our clients to show their love for each other. You can do this by touching each other and showing your natural connection. Just act like you normally would. Holding hands, leaning on the other person, looking at each other’s eyes, these are some of the things that will show your true connection to your partner. Forget that we’re even there! Just channel the love you feel in your heart. This way, the photographs will be timeless, beautiful and most of all, honest.
