Let’s talk about couples photography sessions. They are a very different dynamic to a normal glamour, portrait or boudoir session.
Usually with a couples photography session, there is a hand imprint in the back of one of the couple. Sometimes they will be here because both of them really want a session but more often it is because one person wants the session and has had to convince the other to come along. That is equally divided between men and women too by the way. It is not always the woman who wants the session. Equally, the male half will want to do the session and will push his other half to come along. In the end they will always end up on the same page though, glad they came to us for a session and loving their photographs.
It is interesting to see how different men and women are with their ideas on photographs. When I ask the woman to show me images that she likes as reference for herself, they will mostly be discrete and with a soft feel. When I ask the man for his ideas, they will almost always be sexier and a less subtle. During the session we will usually cover both styles so that both achieve what they want from the session.
A typical couples photography session will run for around 2 hours. We will start photographing the woman first on her own to allow her to relax into the session. We will then photograph the man for a few special images which will usually be a cool headshot and any sexy images that his wife/girlfriend may have requested. Once both are relaxed and settled we will start on the couples images.

We are equally at home posing and photographing soft, romantic couples images as we are posing and photographing sexy, edgy couples images. It all comes down to the style that you are wanting. We know how to pose all body shapes and ages and we will pose the both of you for the very best possible results. We will photograph couples of any age but you must be over 18yrs for nude photography. You can be photographed in formal wear, casual wear, underwear or nude. You may also mix it up and shoot a little of each style. Our studio is private and comfortable and your final images will always remain private unless you choose to give us permission to use them. We never use images without signed permission so if you wish your images to remain completely private, for your eyes only, that is how they will be.
