How our sessions work:
We’re pros at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. So you don’t have to worry about that! We don’t focus a lot on posing you but rather, we’ll tell you to do something like “hold hands and start walking”. That way, you feel comfortable because you’re just focusing on the person you love the most. We really just want to capture the real and authentic moments between you two. With that in mind, we also know how to prompt you so that you end up looking amazing in the photos too.
Throughout your Madrid Adventure Session, we’ll make sure to show you a couple photos from our camera to make sure you like the way you look so that you feel confident right from the start.
We’ve had couples do a picnic dinner before sunset, we’ve had some bring their musical instruments, we’ve had some say their vows to each other, some dance, some love to star-gaze, the possibilities are endless. Ultimately, it’s up to you and what you enjoy doing together. We will find a way to incorporate what you love into your photos!!
