As a wedding photographer and videographer, I understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, especially on their wedding day. Some people may feel self-conscious, awkward, or just prefer to be in the background. However, capturing memories of your big day is important, and I’m here to help.
Here are a few tips for couples who are camera-shy:
Choose a comfortable location: One way to ease camera shyness is to choose a location that makes you feel comfortable. This could be somewhere that holds special meaning to you, like a park where you had your first date or a beach where you got engaged.
Focus on each other: Instead of focusing on the camera, focus on each other. Hold hands, hug, or simply look into each other’s eyes. This will not only make you feel more relaxed, but also create natural and intimate moments that will be captured in the photos and videos.
Engage in activities: Another way to overcome camera shyness is to engage in activities that you both enjoy. For example, you could take a walk, dance together, or have a picnic. This will create a natural and relaxed atmosphere, and allow you to forget about the camera.
Candid shots: While posed shots are important, candid shots can also be incredibly beautiful and tell a story. Don’t be afraid to let me capture the moments as they happen, whether it’s a laugh, a kiss, or a moment of quiet contemplation.
Don't stress: Finally, try not to stress too much about the photos and videos. Remember that your wedding day is about celebrating your love and commitment to each other, not about perfecting every shot. So relax, have fun, and trust me to capture the memories of your day.
In conclusion, being camera-shy doesn’t have to impact the quality of your wedding photos and videos. By focusing on each other, engaging in activities, and allowing for candid shots, you can create beautiful memories that truly capture the essence of your big day.
