This is one of the reasons why having a pre-wedding photo shoot is such a good idea. It gives us a chance to get to know each other, and have a bit of fun down the park or the beach, out in the country or out and about in town before the big day. ‘FUN?’ I hear you cry – and yes, I promise we will actually have some fun while we do it! I often suggest that the ladies use it as an opportunity for a hair and makeup practice day so they are feeling great about how they look, as an added boost. The great thing is that you really will enjoy the experience and you get some fabulous images back before the wedding itself, which helps to take the anxiety out of it all. A lot of my approach to taking photos on the wedding day itself is very documentary and candid in nature, and I’m pretty unobtrusive too, so you really will forget that I’m there for a lot of the time! I have to confess that I’m really not mad keen on having my photo taken either, so I totally understand how you feel, and I am told that I am really good at putting people at their ease around me and my camera.
