    Go with your gut feelings. Some you may need to ask for permission while others you may not. My experience is that if you ask for permission then the pose may not be natural anymore. The idea for candid shots is to have them as they naturally are. So you may need to decide that for yourself.

    Just shoot! The idea is if you'll questioned, just explain to them nicely how beautiful they look, you can email a copy to them blah blah. If they are pissed, just delete it.

    Never hide yourself or put on a paparazzi suit.


    There was once I shot a portrait of a lady, and her bf goes bonkers! But after we have a nice chat and show them her picture, they asked me to shoot a few more shots including 1 for both of them.
