Snap, absolutely me too, it's like my worst nightmare which is why i much prefer to be this side of the lens but because i know what it feels like to be nervous in front of the camera, i can help my couples to relax with simple guidance, by not being up in your face with a camera, by giving you space to breathe and just be yourselves, i'm absolutely not about awkward posing or big grins straight down the lens, in fact i rarely ask you to look directly at me, its more about capturing the connection you share naturally. Thats not to say i won't give you some pointers here and there, but it will never be forced or rigid. That connection could be shot as the two of you stroll hand in hand back towards your guests. It could be an impromptu kiss on the head or a loving glance in between shots. As much as possible, I like to leave you both to interact with your guests and enjoy all the moments that your special day brings, but I usually recommend we schedule about 30 minutes at some point in your day for some artistic couple photographs of the two of you. Whether you are naturally photogenic or whether being photographed is your worst nightmare my relaxed approach and creative ideas will have us capturing beautiful images that you will want to put on your wall.
If you think I might be the wedding photographer for you, I would love to hear from you.
