I don’t tell anyone to “smile”. Â I’m not just against the age old “say cheese” I’m against trying to get someone to do something spontaneously based on nothing. Â So at sessions, especially the first time meeting a couple, I explain that it’s about hanging out, enjoying ourselves and not worrying about what we look like… Â I don’t know about other photographers but it doesn’t do me any good to take pictures of people looking miserable or trying to pretend to be happy. Â What I especially like about this philosophy of photography is that it takes a load of pressure off the subjects, in this case the beautiful Megan and Scott, and they get to be their own wonderful, glorious selves… which as we see here, quite often ends up in tons of smiles :) Â My blogging has fallen a bit behind but I’m trying to catch up and share some of the amazing people I get to photograph and I am so looking forward to their wedding next year!!!
