Camera ready: Any advice for the camera shy?

We're both a bit camera shy and are feeling anxious about photos on our wedding day, but also want a lovely album to look back on. Can you offer us some advice?

Flynn says: Simply be yourselves. Our job as wedding photographers is to capture your day as it happens, as well as doing our best to look after our couples. I personally like to tell a story when shooting as your day unfolds and simply want you to be you. There is really no need to feel awkward in front of the camera, as with my documentary-style shooting, you'll barely know I'm there most of the time!

It's important to get to know your wedding photographer before the big day. An engagement shoot is the best way to do this, as is meeting up or exchanging phone calls. This will all help to put you at ease in front of the camera.

On the day itself I may prompt my couples with simple tasks such as, “Hold hands and walk towards me.” All nice natural actions to get the best out of you and your photos. You're not expected to be super models for the day, so the best thing you can do is to relax and enjoy. It's part of our job to make sure this happens (we don't just take photos). Try to soak in as much as possible, then you can enjoy your album for years to come.
