I go through phases with the types of sessions that I do, but after a string of exclusively families, I had two couple’s sessions come up, which was so fun. I love shooting both families and couples. They’re different in their own ways and it’s nice to have the variety. I always get images of the couples in a family session, but you can get deeper with just the two of them and capture some truly amazing moments and emotions for them.
These two were celebrating their 5th anniversary, after having had their honeymoon here on Kauai. Who doesn’t want Kauai anniversary photos? They were so fun and up for the adventure of the session we set up. I had them each fill out an extensive questionnaire about their partner and their relationship. They picked three things to do, which were 1, choose a song that reminds you of your partner, 2, write your partner a letter and have them read it, and 3, give each other a small gift. It helps create special moments to truly capture their love and relationship and makes these images so real. Reading their questionnaires made me tear up; I’m such a softy. I hope that this session and these moments help them feel closer to each other and appreciate their relationship even more.
