Adding few tips...

1. Have a spray-type bottle of water. Similar to "fresh" still life photography (fruits, plants, etc.), adding drops to skin using that bottle not only works well into the beach environment, but also saves you time from running to the sea to sprinkle seawater onto hair and skin.

2. In cold weather (as it was for us two days ago), have blankets to wrap around the couple between the series of shots or during setting up, especially if elaborate lighting is involved. Otherwise, they will start looking like frozen fishes, affecting initial enthusiasm and cooperation.

Here's a shot from last e-session past Saturday, a collage with few more is in this thread.

Glad to see your still hard at it. Ain't this a great thread? :-)

That's on the 'outtakes reel' for which there is an extra charge! ;)

I guess April Fools day is as good a day as any for this thread to descend into farce.

A sincere thanks for posting. I'm most interested in your tips on how to interact with the couple- loosening them up and getting them comfortable. Any more?

great thread with lots of useful information. one thing i'll do (especially if i know the couple) if one or both seem stressed or uncomfortable with the idea of an e-shoot is to have them meet me for a glass of wine (not red, of course) (usually helps to relax the bride to be) before the shoot.
