Photographing A Couple Outdoors

How do you get a couple to relax when you’re pointing a camera at them? How can you evoke genuine smiles in your engagement and wedding portraits? How does light, location and posing come together in a successful couple’s portrait session?

Join Paul behind-the-scenes as he creates beautiful portraits of an engaged couple in everyday locations, including on a garden lawn, under a pergola and in front of a street doorway. Paul shares tips for working with light and shade and you’ll see his camera settings as well as the unedited and final images.

Afterwards, ask a loved-up couple to model for you. Take a walk through your local park and/or town, stopping to take romantic portraits as you go. Then, upload what you create for critique to get positive, practical and actionable feedback.
