If you are looking for high quality and yet affordable wedding and bridal photography then In Style Photography is your place!
It’s OK, it’s just a photo shoot!
From time to time I come across a person or a couple who just cannot relax in front of the camera. This is unusual by any means. In fact few people are 100% comfortable being the center of attention. Not all of us are an attention seeking Kardashian! OK with that said below are a few tips which might help you when you have to get your head shot, model beauty shot or engagement/bridal photo:
- Be yourself! Too many time people feel the need to “act” instead of simply being who they are
- Move! As in actually move. I do not mean sprint like you’re in a race, but simple move and sway
- Take a deep breath. I know this sounds so simple but it really does work. Heck, take 2 deep breaths, couldn’t hurt
- If you have the choice shoot in a location that’s familiar to you. Strangers and storage places add to you being uncomfortable
- Feel comfortable with the photographer. Rather a good photographer will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and safe
As you can see, nothing on this list is terrible complicated. In fact it’s pretty darn basic. But of none of this works, there’s alway wine!

Does the personality of your photographer really matter?
Of course I am going to say yes to this question, and I do have my reasons . When selecting your photographer most have been told to look at three things: price, quality of work and experience. While I cannot argue with any of those suggestions I would like to add a fourth to this list, personality!
If you stop to think about it for a moment you will realize that you will be spending the majority of your wedding day next to and interacting with your wedding photographer. Same goes with your guests! With this said, ask yourself this simple question; Do you want to be around a grumpy old, “I hate my job” kind of photographer? Or do you want to be around one who is fun, funny, has the ability to relax you and not get stressed out and most of all, one who really enjoys their job?
I would add this component to your selection process when deciding on your photographer be it for your; wedding, family portrait or any photographic event. So the next time you are talking to a prospective photographer try to ascertain whether her/she is relaxed, open and fun. I am not talking hiring a stand up comic, but hire one that at least has a sense of humor!
If you have decided to have anything photographed the obviously it is important to you, so a full time professional photographer is vital!
