Edwin Marcow Photography gives his tips on how to relax in front of the camera
We ask London wedding photographer Edwin Marcow Photography your burning question...
My partner and I are nervous to be in front of the camera. How can we relax on the day?
With 101 things running through your mind, it's understandable if you become anxious. If you're feeling shy, it can affect how you interact with your photographer and how you appear on camera. Looking back, you'll want photos that show your loved ones smiling and laughing, as well as romantic couple portraits without feeling embarrassed.
The wedding morning can be stressful; hair and make-up has to be perfect and you can't be late. Before I even pick up my camera, I'll spend time chatting with you to make you feel at ease. Maintaining that light-hearted approach will enable me to capture beautifully relaxed photos.
I'll always get the newlyweds in a great pose to take some test images. I'll prompt you to smile and then show you the test images on my camera to help build your confidence and see how great you look. I'll always make this time a fun experience that you'll both enjoy. Although I'm an award-winning photographer, I'm actually quite shy myself, and I believe this gives me an insight into how you're feeling.
