I am frequently asked by newly engaged couples how do I get my Bride and Groom to relax in wedding photos. There are many different ways to help people to be relaxed in photos.
I always try and get to know the couple before a wedding. I sometimes do an engagement shoot. This helps the couple to be comfortable with the camera and it also builds up a trust between us. You can read more about them here.
I always meet the couple and run through the plan for the day with them. I visit the locations and we work out a plan for the day together. If we are all singing from the same hymn sheet the day runs very smoothly and we create beautiful images.
Here is a video of me actually shooting a wedding. The wedding was of Samantha and Ciaran who got married in Cork. It will give you an idea how I capture the images on your wedding day.
