Passionate kisses and warm – comforting hugs never fail to bring out the best of every couple’s true connection. Strolling around the street, hand-in-hand in every direction of the sunrays with genuine smiles painted on their faces are all the things that will bring the true characters onto the photographs.
Believe it or not, we do not pose couples in front of our camera, but rather we interact with them to bring out their true nature as human beings. This goes by giving them un-posed prompts such as exchanging questions and answers that will invoke their emotions.
And today, we’ll be sharing about why candid photographs are taking over the trend in the wedding industry.
As much as we’re a big fan of editorial style poses, we believe that the “In-between candids” ooze out the real you. Impromptu moments such as stolen pecks on the cheek, surprise tickle attack or even snuck a whiff of her sweet-smelling hair, are the natural reactions that stay timeless.
ENJOYING THE SESSION
While the notion of having to pose for an entire day can be exhausting for the couples, un-posed moments enable us to make the most out of the photo sessions. What’s better than having so much fun during the session, without having the need to pretend to be who we are not.
It is common nowadays for wedding photographers to pose their couples, whether it is during pre-wedding or even the wedding day itself. But by doing the opposite way (i.e. genuine interactions with the couples), we as photographer will be able to gain a stronger sense of trust from our couples as we focus more on the connections.
UNVEILING THE GENUINE STORY OF THE DAY
Furthermore, un-posed moments allow the day to unveil naturally. We trust that every wedding has its own beauty of revelation. Starting from the early morning of the preparation, to the ceremony, up until the dinner reception. As a wedding photographer, our job is to be a delicate observer throughout the whole day and always be prepared to capture those erratic moments into art. It is important for us to do minimal interruptions (posing) so that we deliver the real story much better.
To sum it up, photographs that move our hearts and souls are the one that have the authenticity and genuineness of the stories. We are here to document life, and celebrate connections. Those photographs will serve as a great reminder of the togetherness in the realest way.
