They live in Sydney but are having their wedding in Perth and had a weekend over here to sort out some of their wedding details. They also had time to meet me in Fremantle for their E Session! YAY!
So an E Session is useful for a couple of reasons. Firstly to get yourselves use to being in front of the camera. Not many people enjoy having their photo taken, it is intimidating having this great big lens in front of you, and looking at a camera, instead of a face when you look at your photographer is really weird (I speak from firsthand experience now after I had a photoshoot last week!). Another reason is for me (your photographer) to figure out the couple, how you interact, and how I can capture this in the best way.
So as I trawl through the images from Anwen and Tyson from our hour session I can see that I am not going to make them hold hands and stare into the camera with blank looks on their faces. Look at how they smile and laugh with each other, for the whole hour. They would start talking to each other then burst out laughing! I also probably won't need to tell them to smile during their wedding day. Looking forward to their wedding in December!
