Our photographers are always open to new ideas. After all they are local photographers and know the city like the back of their hand. Finding the perfect location for your romantic photoshoot can be a challenge. Some places have opening/closing hours, other public areas may be temporarily closed or wont allow photographers. Feel free to comment it with your photographer. Let us know in the comments or chat what are your locations of choice and our photographer will answer your questions.
NUMBER #2 Its All About the Timing.
Time of the year, day in the month, time of the day are just some of the things you must have in mind. Any of them can change your couple photoshoot completely. Have you herd about the golden hour?

Expert advice? Book a shoot during the week (work days). It will clear probable unwanted multitudes .
NUMBER #3: A perfect match
We have received the question “what should i wear for my photo shoot” thousands of times. And there is only one answer. “Wear something that makes you feel comfortable”. A photo session is something to enjoy and feel good about. For example, bringing new outfits can also not be the answer. Clothes you have not worn before can make you feel uncomfortable during your couple photo shoot.
Here are some couple photoshoot outfits ideas:
Start by the shoes, always. Shoes are easy to carry around, if you prefer taking more than one pair, feel free. Or go romantic bare feet. (beware of the first two steps; location and time of the year) no one want freezing toes.
No logo (is usually the best policy). Try not wearing fashion branding unless you really want to.
One of our favorite couple photo shoot outfit ideas is to bring more than one outfit. If you get tired of your first one you will always have a second or even third option. It will boost your confidence, provide more game to the photographer and a bigger variety of pictures.
Make up? Only if you need, it can get uncomfortable depending on how much we are moving, or even sometimes of course the time of the year. Don´t use more than you would normally use.
Matching outfits can be a challenge and many couples have to pass first by the store. How ever, there is nothing like a well matched outfit for a couple photo shoot. Try not being identical, simply a nice match, different tones… if your looking for the next level of photoshoot, ask for our concierge service and make up artist.
