Our aim as photographers is not simply to get a handful of good photos... we want to capture you as naturally as possible. A camera in your face can be a pretty startling thing to have to put up with for an hour. For us, the first step is to get comfortable with our couples - that is, comfortable with US. Unless this happens, a photo shoot is going to be hard work, and, a bit weird. Our bodies rarely hide what we feel. If you feel awkward, chances are you look awkward too. So that's step one!
Before we took a single photo of Lauren & Ben, we had a few drinks, laughed a bunch, and basically became friends :)
The result - real, raw, honest emotion.
also if you do this, and if you're really lucky, a rainbow will appear. *spoiler alert*
