6 Photography Tips for Camera-Shy Couples
 

 
There’s no escaping it! On your wedding day, whether you like it or not, you will be photographed more than ever before. So we’ve asked Saiaf Films to tap into their years of wedding photography experience to share some tips to camera-shy bridal couples on how to work comfortably with their New Jersey Pakistani Wedding Photographer.

1. Take your time to look for the RIGHT photographer for you

The most important part of a wedding is the occasion itself. If you want natural looking images, choose a Phoenix Hindu Wedding Photographer who specializes in documentary style photography. For most part of the day, they will document the natural flow of events without intervention, using composition, light, and emotion to capture just what it meant to be there at that moment.

2. Let your engagement photo shoot be your training ground

Think of your engagement shoot as a warm up. It’ll help you test the waters before you dive in head first on your wedding day. Sample different poses and facial expressions so that you can learn what works and what looks downright awkward. This will also give you a chance to get to know how your wedding photographer works. The more comfortable you are with the person behind the camera, the more relaxed you’ll look in the shots.

3. Keep calm and carry on

This is the main reason why Saiaf Films take the time to get to know and befriend the bride and groom—to make them feel relax and comfortable with them. If you’re comfortable with your photographer, it’s easier for you to act natural. Meet your photographer halfway: open up, let loose, chat and laugh with them. Every good wedding photographer aims to gain the friendship, comfort and trust of their client.

4. Don’t try to fake or hide emotions

Yes, your photographer would love to vividly capture emotions, but they will never ask you to fake it. Whether your nerves are racking, you feel like crying, can’t help but blurt out a loud laugh or you’re in awe of how your beloved looks, let all emotions flow out from you naturally. Real emotions need not be faked or exaggerated to show up in photos.

5. Take direction from your photographer

When it comes to portraits, even just a tiny bit of direction and guiding can help create the most beautiful images – and yes, they can still capture mood and natural emotion. So don’t resist even if you want documentary style or candid images; trust your pro and let your South Asian Wedding Photographer take the lead.

6. Focus on your S.O.

The lovely guy or gal you just tied the knot with should be your focus for the entire shoot. But don’t just stand there staring into your beloved’s eyes – discuss your crazy families, crack some inside jokes or chat about your ceremony’s precious moments. Your authentic reactions could very well translate into your photos.
