Essential guide for camera shy brides-to-be
Don’t worry, we’ve got you!
Feeling a little nervous about being in front of the camera on your wedding day? Yup, you and the other 87826734… brides-to-be.
So, you’re freaking out because your wedding photos and video are the the most important keepsake you’re going to have to remember your wedding day by, and you’re not normally one to jump into the limelight, right? Feeling the pressure to make sure you look perfect? Worry not chica! To give you a helping hand and hopefully calm those nerves, we’ve got some expert tips for you to get you feeling way more comfortable in front of the camera…
Select a professional
A professional is someone that has years of experience in photography, ideally wedding photography. Your photographer should be super comfortable and relaxed, so you feel as though you’re in good hands. If your photographer’s awkward, you will definitely be feeling awkward too. Awks!
Select a photographer you like
Photographers tend to offer a consultation prior to booking, and this is the time to suss them out and see how you connect with them. If you don’t connect, you probably won’t feel your most comfortable around them.
Book an engagement session
Engagement sessions are a great way to practice posing in front of the camera together, learn which angles work best for you both and get to know your photographer a little better. Not only get to know them in person, but also get to know their work first hand. If you aren’t happy with your engagement photos… run for the hills! #PlanB
Be in the moment
Try to relax and not think too much about yourself, instead focus on your partner and the people you are with. Soak in everything that is happening on your magical day and enjoy the moments you are in with your new husband. Forget the photographer! Revel in the happy moment, it’s the biggest day of your life!
