It’s normal to feel nervous and awkward in front of the camera, most people do. Unless you’re a professional model, you’re not used to having a camera pointing in your direction so it’s natural to freeze and not know how to hold yourself. And the last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable on your wedding day.
So, it’s up to us to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera on your wedding day. But how do we do that?
Talk to you and get to know you. That’s why we always like to book in a consultation meeting before the big day, so on your wedding day we’re friends not just photographers.
You don’t even know the camera is pointing in your direction. For couples that feel awkward in front of the camera, it’s common to want more candid and documentary style shots. Described by one couple as ‘ninjas’, our job is to be everywhere but not be seen.
We encourage you to be in the moment with each other. You chose to marry each other for a reason, if there’s anyone you should feel comfortable and relaxed around, it’s your other half.
