Lifestyle Couples Photography
Lifestyle couples photography is a style of photography that I enjoy the most. I love being with the couples in their own environment doing whatever they enjoy doing during any regular weekend. Simple, at home photography sessions without any intrusions from third parties.
Couples feel more at ease and they express themselves effortlessly, comfortable, with authenticity. Simplicity and genuineness in photographing real moments are essential for me and lifestyle couples photography is the ideal style to capture such instants.
The morning I met Martina and Yannis at their apartment it was a few weeks before their wedding day. They were relaxed and enjoying that beautiful Sunday morning. Coffee was served and it was the best! What else could I ask for? A couple madly in love, the aroma of freshly made coffee and a home full of sunshine!
Well… guess… I had a bonus…not to mention two! Martina decided to baked her famous homemade croissants and I had the best little helper ever: little Achilles, sniffing around my bag and equipment and demanding more and more hugs and caresses that everyone was more than happy to give.
Lifestyle couples photography is perfect for people who adore their personal space and want to capture their everyday life with their partner.
This beautiful young couple honored me with sharing their real touch and authentic emotions for each other. The moments were so simple and yet so magical.
At a Couples photography session it is your unique chance to talk to me about the first time you looked at each other… the moment you got swept off your feet… your love story! Either you wish for a simple stroll around the city’s streets, or a walk at the beach, even if you want a conceptual session… We will take some pictures that will celebrate your love and you will cherish for the rest of your life…
How can we add a lifestyle tone to a couples photography session? We set a backdrop of certain beloved locations or activities or better yet, specific events. In other words, we bring real life moments into the photography sessions. Common everyday routines can look entirely different when you capture them. Eating ice cream in your favorite coffee shop, next to your soulmate, looks & feels like a movie love story through a photography camera.
Couples Personal Lifestyle
So where do we cross the line into a more personal lifestyle couples photography? Setting the perfect backdrop at the comfort of your home! Yes!!! The best place on earth is a couple’s castle. Who will disagree on that?
Drinking your morning coffee, half naked or with light clothes… or in your blue jeans. You see, hanging out at home while listening to your favorite cd, brings out the best smiles and looks. Both essential for top photography results!
Choosing your home to run your lifestyle couples photography before your wedding, will prepare you as a couple to dance with the photography camera. Will take the fear out of the picture and will make you feel super comfortable each time you hear the “click”.
In-home photography sessions can transform the most introvert couples and make them look like experienced models. The natural and intimate environment of our home can work wonders. In-home photography sessions go beyond trends and make it more personal. It’s one step deeper from the classical outdoors engagement photography or pre-wedding photoshoots. It’s unique and provides a huge variety of intimate moments as if you are experiencing a couples boudoir photography with your clothes on.
Between you and me, when you are in love, home is the only place you wanna be. So, invite your personal photographer to save these loving moments for an eternity…
