Trend Alert: The Photography Date is the New Couples Massage

Love isn't what you say it's what you do, (A favorite Pooh Bear quote) probably sums up best why we have been seeing so many couples this season. Couples celebrating anniversary, dating couples, engaged couples, all capturing love with a photography experience has us in love with their love.  May we be so bold to say that

The photography date is the new couples massage!

Couples photography dates are great for so many reasons!

  1. Planning Together is fun!  Chatting about theme, location, shopping for outfits and planning your special day can be a great break from your real life of family, crazy schedules, and grown up commitments. True "WE" time to connect with something to look forward to! (Pro Tip:  After your photo shoot make a reservations for a fun lunch/dinner)
  2. It's the gift that keeps on giving. You have this amazing experience together and beautiful portrait keepsakes for your home that remind you each day about how special you are together. (Pro Tip: Our most popular keepsake for couples shoots are "our story books" that share all of your sweet moments from silly to romantic that you can page through time and again)
  3. Rinse and Repeat.  You can do it again and again. Make it a annual tradition and you'll find that couples photography is addictive. Casual one time, dressy the next. Outdoor in the Summer and Glam in the studio... the ideas are endless!

Also know as "Ivy-style" as in... Ivy League schools - the popular look took it's inspiration from leisure activities like polo, tennis, rowing, golf and yachting back in the early 1900's but it was contemporary designers like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger that brought this look to new levels of popularity with football, soccer and more.

Spoiler alert, the magic bullet and your weapon of choice is as easy as building your confidence with preparation for a great shoot. 

1. Look good, feel even better.  Begin with clothing, colors and styling that flatter.  Not sure where to begin?  Your Studio B team is ready to help. (We always have an opinion and after 1000's of portrait sessions - we know a lot about all things "camera-ready")

2. Posing, expressions and "one more time." The beauty of getting to play on set is that you have many opportunities to just be you. Whether you are slow to warm up or instantly ready for the spotlight, we're here to offer posing assistance and ample time to channel your inner supermodel complete with Tyra-like smizing and big, beautiful outburst of joy.

3. Always Picture Perfect.  Don't let an untimely breakout or any other temporary issue shake you.  Every portrait is artworked to a "you on your best day" finish (that's fancy talk for natural retouching). In the inspiring words of a very catchy tune "Don't worry, be happy"

Did you know that Studio B can help you design a Picture Perfect Portrait Wall for your home?

Yes, it's true - Studio B is a full service portrait studio and this complimentary assistance is included with every photography session.

One unique feature in the customization process is that we use simple snapshots of your actual home to create your wall design.  Not only does it allow us to consider the beautiful colors and spacing of the area in which you're hoping to display your images, but we use those images to mock up what your favorite portraits from your session will look like hanging on your walls.  If you're highly visual (like us), this simplifies the process so you don't need to use your imagination to see what your images will look like; you can see it in real time during your order appointment!  And the best part? It's super simple - just 3 easy steps.

Two things to ask yourself to make a killer first impression

Have you ever played the "First Impressions Game"?  You know, the one where you get to proudly say your intuition was spot on or where you have to sheepishly admit you were wrong about someone.  (It's okay, you can admit you've been the person in the second category - no judgment zone! hehe)

In today's internet saturated world, it is likely that your first impression happens when someone visits your LinkedIn profile, checks out your Facebook page, finds you on Match or just enthusiastically swipes right, which makes the power of your professional headshot even more important than ever.

Keep reading for TWO THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF when preparing for your Portfolio Session that will help you make a killer first impression, land your dream job, and have your friends rave about your new profile picture on social media (all in a day's work).

No. 01 = "What do I want my audience to know about me from my portrait?"  This is one of the first questions we will ask you when you come into the Studio.  It dives into the realm of who are you and what do you want others to believe about you.  Answering this not only gives you a direction for the photo session, but it also allows us to create portrait sets that reflect your goal.  For example, Branden was going for the Dos Equis look for his portfolio session - intriguing and approachable.  He definitely nailed the "most interesting man in the world" vibe!

Yeik_online dating studio portraits.jpg

No. 02 = Someone witty and wise once said to "dress how you want to be addressed."  Thinking about this immediately after question #1 lets you line up your wardrobe with your goals for your portrait session.  We love the way Branden brought two variations of suits and rocked them with confidence.  (Also shout out to a good custom tailored suit piece!)  Another good move on Branden's part was to incorporate a casual look in addition to his professional attire; this showcased his more everyday, lifestyle side of who he is, which simply gave him more variety in imagery.
