Currently, I have found myself doing more weddings as compared to the fashion and portraiture than there before. Something which I`m still struggling to decide whether to concrete only with the wedding or push the three and let them complement each other. Anyway I have got some few days before I start writing my New Year’s Resolutions, this is the time you call upon God`s help to have a clear path from the cross-road. Through the weddings I have come across many interesting couples, some like having engagement shoot (pre-wedding shoot) while others make it as simple not to do so and wait for their big day…But we do insist it is worthy doing it. By doing so, we strive so much to have unique pictures hence posing the couple differently from the previous shoot.
Through this I have a learnt a lot-on how to interact with people and to control the emotions when things don’t work out as they were expected to be. Contrary to the fashion and portraiture photographer—you can have a plan with your model and create interesting story board to enhance a particular theme during the shoot and when things don’t work out you can still repeat till you perfect what you are trying to achieve with a limited time, but for the wedding you don’t have time, the only way you can achieve that is during the engagement shoot, but during the wedding ceremony you crate the story for the day as the event unfolds hence you can dare to mess up—since you create life time memories.
That’s why I’m big fan of couple`s posing and having natural moments during the photo-session-due to this, I have learnt a lot in poses such as leaning in for an almost kiss—you let the couple to at least share the kiss, sometimes a kiss can get a little messy or funny looking, so keep in looking for that super romantic.
