Candid: The Engagement Session Game | Better Than Prompt Cards!

With Coronavirus still messing with our lives, we wanted to create an affordable, contact-free, and easy way for other photographers to grow and invest in their business during this season. We know posing is one of the hardest parts of being a photographer. It's hard to get your couples to relax, especially if you get to your session and your brain forgets literally everything you know (we've all been there). SO WE CREATED THIS!!


Candid is the easiest and most fun engagement session strategy! Seriously, it is! No more awkward stiff posing. No more prompt card memorization. You just play a game with your couples and shoot the fun. It takes the pressure off of them, and it takes the pressure off of you. You end up with the cutest candids from purely organic interactions 🤯


40+ cards that create authentically fun and romantic moments. Here's a sneak!

(If you just want to book a Candid session with us, you can skip the blog and book a session HERE!)


It is so much more than a game. We give you everything you need to know to run a successful couples' session, info on how to flawlessly integrate the game into your workflow (and basic info about workflows), playlists to jam to while playing, and a photo of each card in action. This is a great strategy for well-established photographers like us (we actually use this) and hobby photographers who want to learn how to shoot couples. It's easy enough and good enough for anyone and everyone! Seriously, scroll through this post! All of these photos were taken in an hour and a half (including driving 15 minutes and a wardrobe change) and there is SO MUCH VARIETY. Join the Candid fam HERE!

Are you convinced yet? Grab your deck HERE!! Also, it's time to buy that fanny pack you've been eyeing! Tuck the cards in there, throw in some memory cards, batteries, and dove chocolates (they're soooo good), and start playing!

Based in good ol' Omaha, Nebraska, we are Jack + Chelsea Archer, a husband and wife wedding photography team. We love to tease each other, explore nature, drink coffee, and raise kind, adorable tiny people (Liam, Nora, and Zoe). We also love being wedding photographers. We are so thrilled to be the Best of Omaha Wedding Photographers 3 years in a row.


We believe in marriage and we love to celebrate the beginning with our couples. We believe that photography shouldn't just be stiff and manufactured. We are all about the candids and capturing the connection between our couples and their family and friends. That means knowing and loving each of our clients so we know exactly how to photograph them. The best photos are when you're just authentically having fun and enjoying each other, doing whatever you do.
