Launceston Duck Reach Couples Session | Tasmania Couples Photographer

Oh man I loved shooting and editing this session, I’m trying to be a little more creative when I think of locations and achieving more landscape type photos to deliver in my galleries. This location at the Duck Reach lookout is just perfect. Even though the water was high and I couldn’t use the location as hoped. There was still so many fun/different backdrops options there and then chuck in a cute couple.

Marcus and Sarah might have been the easiest couple I have photographed. At the start I gave them my speech on how I want them to only have eyes and hands for each other. 

I always have a few prompts up my sleeve to make my couples loosen up and get some fun natural photos. I didn’t have to use any of these. As soon as I held my camera up they went for it. You can tell they are so in love.

The location was just perfect to get some movement in Sarah stunning hair and not to mention the colour in the rocks almost matching. I mean how can I not get excited about that.

Thank you Sarah and Marcus for giving me such awesome moments to capture. I am so excited for your wedding day 

I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.



How to include dogs in your engagement session | Launceston Photographer

Couples session with Launceston Photographer

We all know that most people see their dogs as part of their family, so it’s only natural that they would be included in the engagement session. Let’s talk about a few things to consider while you plan your couples session.

location

Before choosing your location, think about your dog and it’s personality. maybe your dog is a little more anxious, you then might want to consider having pictures at home. If you are going elsewhere, you need to make sure it is dog friendly. Consider your dogs personality too. If your dog gets distracted easily, it may be challenging to have photos taken in a busy park. Timing is important here too. If your dog is well socialised a busy area wont be a problem.

Preparation

You might want to bathe and brush your dog before the shoot. You may need to take your dog for a long walk or have a game of fetch before the shoot to help your dog relax and not be so full of energy.

A well trained dog is much easier to photograph than one who is not. Practice to sit, lie down and stay leading up to the session. Even if your dog is not a master of these commands, it will help if your dog has a general idea of what they mean.

Bring water, a leash, treats, poop bags and maybe your pets favourite toy. Squeaky toys are always a good way to get dogs attention.

If it’s possible, bring a friend to take care of your dog while we take some romantic shots.

Have fun :) This might be obvious, but remember the goal is to capture your love and personality as a couple and your dog. Don’t be afraid to be silly and let loose.
