Marlboro's Engagement | Couples Sessions

$290.00


Questions? Our Current Response Rate: Within 1 Hour

Each Engagement Session will begin by having a phone, email or text consultation with one of our professional photography concierges. They will get to know you and your story - and help understand your vision of what you imagine for your perfect family photos. They will also answer any questions you may have about your shoot!

On the day of the shoot Marlboro always arrives 30 minutes early to scout the location for the best shooting spots and to gauge the lighting conditions. When you meet with Marlboro he’ll get you comfortable and relaxed by asking you questions about how you met and who made the first move :) He’ll then start the shoot off by asking you two to walk together while he starts shooting. He’ll show you the best shots as you go to get your confidence up in from of the camera! From here he’ll get you to do fun things together as if it was a date - such as throwing rocks on the beach and blowing dandelions at each other! The whole shoot Marlboro will never pose you, he’ll only direct you and give you ideas on how to work together to capture beautiful natural expressions!

Focal Photographer: Marlboro


If you’re just looking for any photographer you may want to look somewhere else. Marlboro is a true visual storyteller - he captures moments that you won’t be able to help yourself look back on and smile.

Marlboro sees photography as a 3 dimensional art on a 2 dimensional surface which is why he is always able to find the perfect angle, using a combination of natural and artificial light to compose and capture beautiful authentic moments.

Marlboro is the type of artist that thinks carefully about each click of the shutter. You'll see him continuously adjusting his lights, straightening out decor and fine tuning everything to get his perfect composition. There's nothing that he does that is without purpose.

Marlboro is also a wonderfully caring person who will make you laugh, feel comfortable and like the star of your own show in front of the camera.

Marlboro embodies all the qualities of the perfect Focal visual storyteller - his attention to detail, artistic vision and true desire to make his clients happy is unmatched.

FAQ

  • I get really nervous in front of the camera, how will the Marlboro ensure I’m comfortable?

    It can be intimidating being in front of the camera, with a big strobe light pointed at you - but don’t worry we’ll make you feel like a movie star!

    To get the perfect shot, it’s critical that the subject and photographer are comfortable and trust each other. Marlboro will put you at ease by talking with you, cracking the occasional joke and shooting while you talk. He also has some great exercises to help you relax, feel confident and find comfort in front of the camera.

  • Why do you use such fancy lights? Why not just use natural light?

    Think of photography as a language and light its vocabulary. Many “photographers” use natural light because it is easy. However, to truly compose the perfect a shot, a photographer must control the complex interplay of light on the subject. To do so, Marlboro uses multiple lights to fill the unwanted shadows and add dimension between the foreground, middle ground and background.

  • What should we wear to our shoot?

    Typically we recommend wearing neutral colours to your shoot such as beige, ivory, taupe, black, gray and shades of white
