Let’s pump the brakes for just a second.
First, know you’re not alone. Like you, most of the couples I talk to start off worrying:
Hey, I get it! Having your picture taken is an incredibly vulnerable thing. Even as a professional photographer, I feel nervous when stepping in front of the camera.
But believe it or not, there are some pretty epic things that come out of that discomfort. Like the elimination of fear and the permission to be yourself. And from that, flattering photos that still LOOK and FEEL like you.
And that… That gift of seeing yourself reflected in your photos – of just letting go and being 100% confident in who you are – is my ultimate purpose as a wedding photographer.
