Third Ward Anniversary Session | Milwaukee, Wisconsin | Kyle + Sami
If you have to fart, I encourage you to do so.
I believe you should be so comfortable with your photographer, that you feel free to rip ass during your session. I’m being serious. We should absolutely be on that level. I really don’t want you to show up to your session trying to imitate other couples you’ve seen. Please don’t come and “try to be perfect.” This isn’t about trying to be the next viral instagram post. This is about you, your relationship, and everything that entails. Kyle and Sami’s 3 year anniversary session in Third Ward was on that level.
It’s not authentic if you hate snuggling
Kyle and Sami are that kind of couple that exudes love. They’ve been married for 2 years, though you would never guess it. I don’t think their affection for each other has ever left the honeymoon stage. Having known these two for years, I can tell you their relationship is full of tenderness, affection, and giggles. This absolutely came out during their session, and the vibe of the whole gallery is so authentic because it is SO true to them. However, what is authentic to one couple might not be authentic to another. Maybe you aren’t snuggly with your significant other. Maybe you actually hate snuggling. If you hate snuggling and I ask you to snuggle your entire session, your photos are going to suck. They will look high quality and professional, but they will suck, because they won’t be authentic.
So let me get to know you on a deeper level. I always engage in conversation with the people I photograph, because I need to understand you and your relationship. We gotta be comfortable with each other. You need to let me in on a little piece of your life. I don’t like “just taking photographs.” I want to tell your story. Without knowing you to some degree, I can only guess what the best way to tell your story is.
Third Ward Anniversary farts make for good photos…
So open up to me. It’s that simple. And if you have to fart, fart. Kyle was farting all night and had Sami cracking up. It made for some great giggly photos for their anniversary session in Third Ward 🙂
