There are smiles for photographs and there are natural smiles. We learned that by seeing thousands and thousands of portraits of couples that have passed through our magazine. When someone is uncomfortable before the camera, it shows. That face of “finish the session as soon as possible” is recorded for posterity and is not the best memory for your big day. Today we want to show you some Colombian experts who find natural gestures and connections between couple, which they translate into beautiful wedding photographs.
This is By Pixel Reflex Photography, spouses who entered the world of wedding photography four years ago, almost by coincidence. They were out walking with some relatives and started taking pictures of them; Suddenly they had a whole session of couples in their hands and they realized that the challenge was more than interesting: to be able to manifest love in its natural state? They stepped up to the challenge and have since then been continuing perfectly photograph each couple that hires them.
“Our photos are casual, natural,” they told us when we asked them about their style, “we like to capture that.” They say that is picturing couples dancing is the hardest because it requires a lot of work. “However, we love to achieve that in every marriage in which we have participated! “
Going through the photograph album is like going through a wedding in detail, you can relive each minutes detail: the shoes next to the bouquet that wait for the bride, the mom who finishes zipping the dress, the meeting of the bride and groom at the altar, the emotional ceremony, the session of the lovers, the party… The only ones that are in all the moments of the wedding, they never appear in the photos! And in fact, these professionals are usually in the before and after.

“There are many fun moments, but always what we enjoy the most is when the couple just gets married and they run away with us to take their photos.” In the pre-wedding, and also in the post-wedding, we had a great time because we can share a different environment with them, which is more relaxed and fun, even when things go wrong… But they no longer care so much because the most important thing, which is their commitment to God, is been fulfilled,” they tell us.
What are your suggestions for taking wedding photographs loaded with spontaneity? The first among the answers is one of the least expected: the feeling. That you feel you can connect with the photographer, that you can achieve not only a connection, but a friendship too. Is it not easier to be genuine in front of the camera? When you sit in front of a friend, rather than a stranger, you can show a more natural, candid look.
The second, that you take your time to chat with your wedding photographers. The idea is to tell them about your love story, to tell them how everything was, so that it helps them to know what is most important. But also that you bring your ideas, what you’ve always wanted to see in your wedding photographs. They are willing to listen to you, to follow you and of course to advise you so that you have the photos you always dreamed of.
