Tourist lifestyle photography has become a fairly popular aspect of my business. I serve people visiting Nashville wanting surprise proposals documented, engagement photos, day in the life photos, or other lifestyle photos. I can offer them an organic un-posed alternative to forced poses and expressions. For example, these 3 couples traveled to Nashville together. The day we met up, it was very hot and humid, but they were good sports. When people are visiting, it’s my job to accommodate and even be somewhat of a tour guide. Picking locations based on the personality of the subjects is an important part of the service. Amy and Johnny needed engagement photos, we’ll start with them.
Getting to know a bit about the couples or individuals I’m photographing helps me personalize their shoot. Both with choosing the best setting and locations that are relevant to them, and how I compose and light the photos. The next couple, Mark and Judy were celebrating their 40th anniversary! How exciting, and they had so much personality and energy for each other and life, humbling indeed!
All 3 couples were visiting from both Texas and New Mexico, but enjoying their time in Nashville. I know what it’s like to have to savor each day on vacation, and their vacation time is valuable too. So it’s important to me to document their memories and make a fun experience for them. Next couple, Dana and Justin, for their first anniversary!!
At the end, I laid on the ground to get a different angle of them with the bridges in the background. I felt something biting me, maybe fire ants. I splashed river water on me, which probably killed them instantly. I felt even dirtier and stickier. Now a walk back to 6th and Church, and crank the A/C! But first, a nice sunset. I hope you’ve enjoyed this batch of tourist lifestyle photography with these 3 lovely couples!
