There’s no better way to celebrate a relationship than to capture it with some intimate images. Whether it’s a Valentine gift, an engagement, a birthday or anniversary present, the photographs that we capture during your couples shoot will give you a lifetime of smiles. I’ve recently had the pleasure of photographing two gorgeous couples who had special occasions to celebrate.
Worth the drive from Malaysia
Natalie booked a surprise couples shoot for Carl, who was celebrating his birthday the day of the photo session. While Natalie was having her makeover done, I photographed Carl. He wanted some professional headshots done for work as well as some professional headshots for his second job as a DJ. Carl was completely comfortable in front of the camera and I think you’ll agree that he looks like a professional model as well as a very sophisticated DJ!
Natalie then stepped in front of the camera. She also wanted some headshots for work as well as some glamour portraits, so we spent the next hour creating exactly the looks she wanted. Her looks were a mixture of Hollywood siren and Audrey Hepburn and she certainly conveyed some vavoom that morning!
We finished the session with Natalie and Carl together, capturing some relaxed and romantic portraits. I caught a glimpse of the mutual respect, love and admiration that they have for each other, and although they have been together for many years they are still like young lovers. The romance was definitely in the air during this session and I was privileged to catch such an intimate glimpse of them together.
First photos since their wedding
More recently, Felicia and John came to the studio for their couples photo shoot – they wanted some romantic photos to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Felicia said it had been many years since they had some proper pictures of themselves taken, and thought that the last ones were taken at their wedding!
Felicia was thrilled with her beautiful makeover; she works full time and rarely gets the chance to experience such pampering. The photo shoot was full of laughter and jokes, and was over far too quickly. Felicia told me that they are going to put their portraits up on their bedroom wall – I hope that they bring Felicia and John lots of pleasure and happiness for many years to come.
