Stuttgart Pancake Morning – COUPLESESSION 2/5
This whole series with Vali & Davy consists of 5 single sessions. Vali & I met via social media and I immediately knew that this is going to be awesome. Not only because they are both beautiful people with such an individual, retro style. More because of how they both are. They are more then open-minded, they are as cool as they look, they are funny – even if it is freezing cold they keep on pretending to be funny 😀 – they are creative and they love to create things. Vali and Davy understood some things that are some of the most important for me when I shoot people in love from the start.
First it’s never about me it’s always about you! These are your pictures and emotions and it’s more than important that you feel comfortable. Therefore – your ideas for style, location and whatever gadgets we add to a shooting should reflect you. I can add what is important to create the best light atmosphere, I will help you to feel comfortable in front of my camera but in the first instance it is about you. You don’t have to do it for me – it’s for you! Even if it was organized we paid as much attention as possible to reflect them in the series – that’s what ended in several skype calls, texts and calls.
Second – whenever I come around for the shooting and you are stressed because you came just straight from your office day or your still struggling with something unspoken, it might fail. Vali & Davy were already together when I came to Vali’s place, we made a relaxed breakfast with pancakes – so they could also take care of each other and be in a chilled mood.
Third – and this is when I have thank you Vali!! Often do people ask me about what to wear and when I have a shooting that is a bit styled, I have things prepared. But whenever it is about you, booking me – please don’t borrow something from someone, or even buy something new. Feel comfortable in your clothes and come in your own wardrobe. You really don’t need to buy anything new for a shooting. Be yourself. Feel free to show off 100% natural. Be funny, freak out, laugh, cry, whatever, but don’t try to be someone else – the pictures will be yours forever – they should not show two different persons than you actually are. And the best moments anyway happen in between, when you just let it all go.
