While portraying a couple’s physical outlook, personality and feelings for each other, couple photographs are intended to be beautiful images to look at in the years to come.
There are several techniques to get nice portraits which can meet a couple’s expectations by mirroring their distinctive traits and fixing their passion in everlasting pictures.
For instance, one could set the portrait in a natural environment or in an exotic background (this is often the case for wedding and honeymoon photographs); choose an original perspective (like photographing from above) or a special time (like sunrise or sunset); add nice details (such as the bridal veil) or garments loved by the couple; use the silhouette effect.
One can also put the couple’s image into a creative frame by using architectural (a bridge’s slats, columns) or natural (plants, flowers) elements.
This provides an original point of view and gives the impression we are looking at the couple from a hidden place. It also adds a pleasant decoration to the picture.
