Chenoa and Ryan – Albany Portrait Photography
A little over a week ago, Ryan and Chenoa travelled to Albany to have some portraits taken before their big day in Katanning. They were nervous about having their picture taken. In fact, just about every person I photograph is a little nervous in front of the camera to begin with. I completely understand this – often I have never personally met my subjects, except for a few emails and a quick phone call.
I like to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera – it’s not easy, but it is so important.
We talk as we shoot, go slow, find some nice light and let people be themselves – and that is the key. And soon, my couples start to relax.
People put a huge amount of trust in me to help create and capture their memories, and I always try to go above and beyond to take some amazing shots. I pride myself on making people feel comfortable with me – after all, we are a team.
Tomorrow I’m heading out to the lovely township of Katanning to photograph Chenoa and Ryan’s Wedding. I still get excited about every single wedding I photograph and this one is no exception. Last weeks Albany Portrait Photography session, made me realise just how invaluable these pre-wedding photo sessions can be. I like to think of them as a ‘lets get to know each other session’, without the added pressure of your wedding day. And as an added bonus, they provide you with some fantastic images of you – outside of your wedding setting.
