This session by Gillian Gauthier is so sublime...who would have guessed the water was absolutely freezing!?! (Now that's a great model.) When I asked Gillian how she helps the bride feel so comfortable during a shoot, she replied with some great advice, "The longer the (TTD) session, the more comfortable your client feels. Everyone usually starts off a bit nervous, but the more fun, the crazier, the sexier, the better for your bride! Make sure you tell your bride she looks fabulous when she hits that perfect pose or look you are going for and encourage her to be dramatic and sexy and mysterious ... the more relaxed you are, as well, the more relaxed your client will be. Remember to have a BLAST with your client as that will show up in the images." I'd say it definitely shows up...don't you agree?
The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
