“Priscilla and Paul are from Hong Kong. They contacted me to document their time in Lucerne, Switzerland. We spent the day visiting some local secret spots and just roaming the streets of Old Town, Lucerne.
When I have couples visiting from far away I try to show them a good time and include some of the hidden spots only the locals know about.”
Stefan’s Photography Tip:
Make friends with your clients. If I haven’t met my clients in person before the session I always leave my cameras on my shoulders for a while. Make conversation and get to know your subjects. I don’t want to be the intimidating guy with a camera. I want them to feel comfortable with me.
Scout your locations in advance. It will make a huge difference, at lease it did for me.
A relaxed relation with your clients is important, as it will show in your imagery if they feel comfortable with you as a person.
Stefan used a Nikon D700 and Nikon D800 with a Nikon 35mm f/1.4 lens and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 lens to capture these images.
