Yes it is! Believe me, the vast majority of my couples tell me they feel awkward having their photo taken, including the ones you see on my website, do they seem to feel awkward?
To be a photographer not only means knowing a few stuffs about light and techniques, off course theory is a rather important skill to have, but it’s only the base. I think that in order to get authentic expressions you need to feel at ease. So, we’ll get to know each other and soon enough we’ll laugh out loud and you’ll end up your session feeling like it was everything but a photo shoot!
You just need to come as you are (yes I do like Nirvana a lot), be open, honest and the photos will come out beautiful!
