We often get clients saying that they are really nervous in front of the camera, that they don’t like having their picture taken or they have never liked a single photograph of themselves. And to be honest, I totally get where they are coming from. That was so me for the first half of my life. GAH – the horror, the horror, of looking at my old photos…shudder. But like pretty much everything else in your life – like getting your eyebrows done, to fixing your car engine, to installing a light fixture – sometimes hiring a professional makes all the difference. And I’m telling you, having photographs taken by a professional photographer with a professional camera with years of experience is light years away from those dreadful photos you have taken by Aunty Vera at your cousin Cameron’s 21st. (And there is no way I am showing you those!!!) Of course, Joshua and Jerry have none of these problems – relaxed in front of the camera, gorgeous pictures and photographs that show how much in love they are. That is what a professional brings to the table – and why it is so important to get someone experienced and capable taking your wedding photographs. Cause can you just imagine your old Aunt Vera with her little, ancient point-and-shoot camera, yelling “CHEESE” every five seconds while she holds her finger over half the lens on one of the most important days of your life? Oh dear – now that is something to be nervous about.
