Product information

You can look forward to that!

In this detailed workshop on the subject of wedding couple shooting , we will photograph a beautiful real couple together with a bridal bouquet and implement a bridal couple shoot as realistically as possible so that you are well prepared for your next wedding.

We not only give you photographic know-how, but also technical know-how , so that you can then easily implement our approach on your own for further shoots, because this can be implemented for every photographer and, above all, for every couple.

Capture real moments

During the shoot, we actively support you in improving your skills and thereby capturing real moments. We discuss important points such as communication , the correct lighting and of course posing . The aim is for your couple not to find themselves in stiff poses, but to be able to involve themselves in the shoot through appropriate storytelling and secure communication and thus recognize themselves in the pictures. You will also learn how to capture different moments and emotions within a “pose” and how to design them creatively using different perspectives and angles.

For beginners and advanced users

our common goal

Our workshops are generally structured in such a way that both beginners and advanced users can learn lots of new tips and tricks, implement them quickly and, above all, benefit from them.

We give everyone enough time to get involved with the situation and the couple and take photos with our support. We're not doing a pack shoot here for good reason. You will then receive live feedback from us as we look at the images directly on the camera. This gives you more confidence and allows you to repeat something without pressure if it doesn't work out so well. The goal here is to be able to confidently implement what you have learned on your next shoots . At the end you will have gained a lot of new knowledge and experience, improved your skills and met great people. If you are interested, invest now in your own further training, have a lot of fun and, above all, motivation to advance your own photography!

I want to be there!

You can look forward to that!

Wedding couple shooting

communication

So that your couples not only feel comfortable , but also understand which ideas you would like to implement, it is important to be able to adapt to your couples and hit the right note . Every couple is different and needs to be picked up and inspired elsewhere. We give you tips and experiences to help you master this important and fundamental part better.

Picture ideas & composition

Which image cut , which angle, portrait or landscape format, what kind of background should I choose? There is a lot to consider so that your picture looks coherent in the end. Here, too, we take enough time to convey our style and our thoughts on it to you. In addition to general rules, we have developed many of our own procedures . We would like to share these and many more with you.

Location

A question we are often asked is: "Which location should I choose for such a couple shooting?" Or: "Do you choose the location or does the couple make this decision". We have also prepared a few things for you on this topic and, of course, many other empirical values ​​on how to approach a location depending on the season and what needs to be considered.

Posing

We'll show you how you can ensure that your couples don't just stand there stiffly, but move and implement lively poses with a lot of fun and joy . It's important to us that it doesn't get too complicated, but that it's easy to implement . Whether cuddling, running, sitting, but also very dynamically on "piggyback" we deal with all possible situations.

light guide

No matter how good your pose looks, if the light isn't right, it just won't turn out to be a pretty photo. That's why we're talking about working with natural sunlight and, on the other hand, about the right lighting when photographing indoors.

equipment & technology

In our opinion, which technique is necessary for you to be able to implement a couple shoot really well. For this we talk about focal lengths and the right camera . Of course, you will also learn the basics of manual photography and which apertures and settings we prefer to take our pictures with.
