A Christmas Message on Being Photographed, and Loving Yourself

I don’t normally write personal/inspirational posts on this blog. (But maybe that should change?) Taking photographs for a living is an interesting thing to do, especially in the wedding industry which can often be vain and have a focus on the details rather than the meaning. Most of my clients and I are on the same page though. Marriage and weddings are beautiful, because of the true meaning behind the celebration; the love and the promise. When I take photographs, I want to capture the meaning, the emotion, the love, the personality, the natural and the real moments shared between people who love each other.

Taking on the Camera and Winning

I'm going to take the opportunity in this blog post to get a little bit personal. Just like many of my clients I often find it very difficult to be in front of the camera getting my photo taken. So many of us are soooo self conscious, we fret about our little faults that often only we can see. And when we fret, it shows through in our photos. With a vicious cycle this makes us more self conscious, which makes us look weirder and weirder until finally you become a photographer so you'll never need to be in front of the camera again! Haha! I joke.

Booking your wedding photographer is a big deal! (If you've just booked, congrats! Woohoo!) Your photographer will be creating the memories that will let you relive your wedding day years after the cake, decorations and music are gone. Often this can be the very first time you’ve booked a professional photographer, so you may not be sure what to expect. I can’t speak for every one or every photographer, but here are some things that might help you prepare for and feel relaxed about the special photos on your big day.
