Couples Photo Session by Amber Roberts

This was a couples photo session that I will always remember because Diana and Nader are two very special people. Spend any time with them and you will quickly see why they are together. They are two of the most genuine, gentle and kind-hearted people that you will meet. It was a real privilege for me to take their portraits and to capture their relationship on camera.

Diana and Nader travel a lot and there was only one possible Saturday over a 3-month period that would work for this special couples photo session. When their shoot began Nader was first in front of the camera, while Diana was treated to her makeover. Looking extremely sophisticated in some new suits, he rocked his solo session and got some fantastic head shots for work. When Diana was ready we focused on the task in hand: capturing them together! As a photographer it really is a privilege to get within a couple’s ‘personal space’ and to portray the relationship that they have.

Scroll down for a small selection of Diana and Nader’s order that gives a mini peek into what they will be hanging on their walls. Definitely worth saving some prominent wall space for don’t you think?!

Your relationship will grow, evolve and change shape through the coming years, so it’s important that you capture yourselves as you are today.  Now is the time to book a couples photo shoot, especially if you have an anniversary with a 5 or 0 in it!  Call me on 9660-4176 to book your session and be sure to plan a romantic evening out (or in) afterwards!

Why Book A Couples Photo Session?

I always get a rush of excitement when I receive a booking for couples photo session. There is usually a significant anniversary or birthday to celebrate – if you’re going to book a photo shoot it better be for a good reason, right?  Lisa contacted me with 3 excellent reasons!

1)  She was celebrating a special birthday and wanted to have a fantastic makeover and photo shoot experience to spoil herself, and have some beautiful photos to mark the occasion;

2)  She wanted to get some professional portraits taken of her with her husband, Gerry. Although they had had 2 wedding ceremonies, Lisa and Gerry had never had professional photos taken their weddings 21 years ago. This photo session was going to be the time when she got those special couple portraits.

3)  Lisa wanted some photos of Gerry playing the guitar. Apart from Lisa it’s his passion and she wanted to capture some moments when he’s most himself – in his element and immersed in his music.

Gerry and Lisa arrived and we discussed the various outfits that they would be wearing, and planned out the flow of this special couples photo session. Lisa then began her magical makeover experience with the wonderful Gayathri Menon and I started taking Gerry’s guitar portraits.  We also had time to take a few spontaneous head shots for his professional use – that’s the 4th reason!  An hour later Lisa was ready to join in and we began a fun-filled hour of couples photography, fuelled by lots of banter, laughter and ‘in’ jokes.

Delivering the products later was such a pleasure – it’s always like giving my client a gift. Lisa and Gerry chose to order one of my print packages – they knew exactly what they wanted to do with the prints, photo book and acrylic block. Gerry loved his guitar photos and his favorite portrait now takes pride of place in his guitar room. Lisa said, “The photos of us as a couple with me in my wedding dress are going up in our home in France.  Having lived abroad all of our married life in rental homes, there’s something fitting about having those photos in our French home, a space that is truly ours.”

Oh, I forgot to mention – the blue dress that Lisa wore for the photoshoot – it’s the same dress that she wore all those years before at their wedding!!!! How impressive is that? Not many of us can say that can we? Yet another reason to celebrate.

Have you got a good reason to celebrate? Call me on 9660-4176 to book your romantic couples photo shoot and let’s get you some treasured portraits of you and your loved one.
