Barcelona Wedding Photographer: 3 tips for Your Photo Shoot
Hey gals, need some tips for your Barcelona Wedding Photographer Photo Shoot? I’m here to help 😀
I know you are so excited about your upcoming photo shoot! And I want you to look and feel super fabulous; that’s the key to capturing priceless photos. So, let me give you a bit of insight on what to wear, how to relax, and most of all…how to feel your best for your Barcelona photo shoot. Let’s do it!
- Treat Yo’Self (with a Planned Budget)
This is the moment when your man can’t say anything to you about spending money! He’s already agreed to the photo shoot, and now he’s terrified of telling you no – use it to your advantage! Hahaha! Get your nails done, your highlights updated, and maybe a fabulous new outfit that makes you feel great 😀 If Ol’ Mr. Cheap starts complaining, I suggest crying and telling him he’s ruining your moment. Haha!
But for real, how often do you get professional photographs taken? Maybe 2 or 3 times in your whole life? Do it right. (Especially when in Spain or Barcelona!)
Here’s how to not go crazy or break the bank: for 1 to 2 months, save income on non-essentials like eating out, new purses, or Liam Hemsworth fan fiction. Then, with that money create a Budget called “Queen Bey for a Day” (or whatever you call your budgets 😉 Decide what you can really live without for a month & save it!
Then before the session, spend your ‘Beyonce’ budget on things that will make you feel fabulous: a facial, new lipstick, control-top pantyhose, etc. But most of all, don’t feel guilty! You saved up a budget to consciously spend on something that will make you happy (& confident for the Barcelona Wedding Photographer Photo Shoot) 🙂 Yay for you!
- Don’t be embarrassed to kiss, touch, and love on your partner during the session
I know that a lot of people are anti-PDA or at the very least shy in front of the camera. There’s basically a huge lens is watching every move your make. Creepy.
But after photographing hundreds of couples, I can assure you that I don’t think it’s weird at all to see you be affectionate with your partner. In fact, to me, it’s the most beautiful thing in the world to witness love, respect, and complicity between partners. I usually cry while I’m editing photos because I think it’s so beautiful!
And, I would never select or publish photos that were inappropriate or made you feel uncomfortable. Those I keep in a private folder just for me…;-) Haha! Just kidding! Maybe…;-)
Treat a professional photographer like a your doctor, someone who has seen it all before and isn’t scared/embarrassed but rather has dedicated their life to this because they love it. They want to help you! A comfortable attitude will ensure that you have fabulous photos from your Barcelona Wedding Photographer Photo Shoot.
- Bring Flats 🙂
Crazy important, especially in a city like Barcelona. Here, people walk everywhere. ( I tried to tell them about the glory of driving and parking lots, but no one got it…)
It’s definitely great to wear heels as they make our legs look fabulous and stylize our figures. Also, in case of a big height difference with our partner, they’re clutch!
However, places like the Gothic Quarter there are filled with 13th-century cobble stone streets that are begging your ankles to take it easy! Nobody was wearing heels in the medieval ages 😉 So in case your feet get tired or you need a break, pop a light pair of ballet flats in your luggage. They weigh nothing, and might save the day of your Barcelona Wedding Photographer Photo Shoot 😀
I hope these tips from this Barcelona Wedding Photographer helped prepare you for your upcoming photo shoot! 😀 I can’t wait to share more in the weeks ahead.
