tami + shawn Engaged
We looked like models
Tami and Shawn were by no means trained models. They were self-conscious, fidgety, and fully too aware of the camera to relax. Here is the situation I’m now in, I have these two people who aren’t entirely comfortable having photos taken of them, they’ve paid me to do this, I’m in the crucible at this point.
I must transition Tami and Shawn from self-conscious (and reasonably so!) and awkward, to comfortable and stunning. This session took about two hours, which is common. By the end of the shoot, every glance, every smirk, every peek at the camera just killed it–was obliterated. Through a series of exercises, unbeknownst to them, I was able to loosen them up and let their cool-cat personalities really shine through. That’s really what makes it though, the experience of the professional you’ve chosen to trust. A less experienced Tyler Ray would not have been able to help Tami and Shawn look so fabulous. The end result is two fold rewarding. First, these two saw themselves in a way they may have never seen each other. They may have gorgeous senior photos from high school, but that was 10 years ago. When we took a moment to review the images halfway through the session, I could see their eyes light up, they were seeing how sexy and thrilling they look. That’s one of those exercises, showing the images to you so you can get inspired.
