As far as I’m concerned, you lead the session. You are paying for a service, so your requests should be met.

Photographers, however, are great for suggesting poses and ideas. Most have locales they’re familiar with, but don’t be scared or nervous to suggest something new or different.  Remember, the happier you are with what you are getting, the more you will enjoy your session and your photos!

If you’re not sure how to approach your photographer, write out the things you want/need in a list and see what they boil down to. Then call your photog and just mention you were hoping to have a few things done during your session.

A good professional will work with you all the way!

I told my photographer some ideas that I had, and he incorpoated his own photography style into the kind of background and poses we used. I knew that i wanted to use props, and the photographer was totally open to me using them, even though he had never done a shoot like that before!

If he is a good photographer, his main concern should be getting you the photos YOU love. He will want you to be satisfied. most photographers are extremely open to shooting where you would like, so don’t feel bad running around to different places! i am sure he will gladly follow.

I found that the photogrpaher really helped me with poses. I found places and props that i liked, but didn’t know how to stand or what to do with my Fiance once we were there.

It is totally not rude to show him other’s work. Briing/send as many as you like, i am sure your photographer would be open to the inspiration.
