“This is one of your tricks!” she laughed.
“What? Huh?” he responded.
“No, not you…Casey! This is one of his tricks to make people smile and laugh and be natural while he takes pictures.”
You see, sometimes, as a photographer, I give little suggestions or things to do to help people feel more comfortable and relaxed when I am taking their pictures. Most people aren’t used to having their photos taken by a professional. Many people don’t like having their picture taken at all. Are you one of those people? I certainly am.
So, yeah, I usually drop a few little helpful hints to make people laugh or otherwise ‘break the ice’. And then, things take their own course. For example, in this Brooklyn rooftop session our conversation ranged from ineffective cell phone battery cases to the films of Nicholas Cage…
What was my response when Meghan called me out for using one of my tricks?
“Yes, and it works. Trust me.”
What do you think of this Brooklyn rooftop engagement session? Leave a comment below and tell me what you think. I don’t know about you, but Dave is putting off some major Nick Jonas vibes, in my opinion. Are you in Brooklyn and looking for great, relaxed, fun engagement photos? Well then, you should let me know…like now!
