Wedding Photography For Couples Uncomfortable Having Their Photos Taken

Let me assure you that you’re not the only one who feels this way.

I’m guessing this is the first time you have worked with a professional photographer?

It’s important to know up front that you won’t be expected to perform a certain way.

There will be no forced smiles or awkward posing involved.

You can’t do anything wrong.

Most importantly, remember I am here to capture your wedding day as it happens.  It is your day, not mine.

A true story…

Although I could tell that Katie and Oliver were not too fond of having their photos taken, I hadn’t appreciated the extent of that dislike until I read their review afterwards.

Both myself and my husband are not the keenest on having our photos taken…in fact it was the biggest concern for me in planning my wedding.

I found James’s website through a search and read his blog on his website, showed it to my then fiance who said he sounded perfect for our day.

It was better than perfect.

All of our guests commented on how professional and pleasant James was, and to be able to see some of our photos running on a slideshow in the evening was a really nice surprise. Each photo James took showed a different moment of the day.

I would recommend him for anything that needed photos taking.

Thank you James (from both of us Homyards!)

The Introvert Wedding Photographer

Yep, I’m an introvert.

Why does that matter to you?

Many assume wedding photographers are outgoing, assertive with a larger than life personality.

You may be concerned that a photographer will come bursting onto the scene and take over everything, expecting everyone to look and act a certain way.

Those who know me will tell you that just isn’t me, at all.


Keeping a Low Profile

The couples who choose me as their wedding photographer are looking for someone who is confident and highly skilled at taking photos whilst keeping a low profile on the day itself.

It is in my nature to stand back and observe.

I don’t push myself into a situation or try to influence what people are doing in order to force a photo.

I have an appreciation for the moment which translates to honest, true to the memory photographs.

Relaxed Yet?

I know, I can’t change how you feel in just a few sentences.

Many find that an engagement shoot prior to the wedding day helps them get over their concerns.

For others it’s just something that they have to get through along with all the other many stresses of a wedding day.

Either way, I hope you can take comfort in knowing that you are definitely not the only one uneasy about having your photos taken.
