Photographer’s Pro Tip to help your Groom enjoy the Photo Session

Question from a Bride-to-be: “My fiancé is uncomfortable with being photographed. How do I convince him to just be himself?”

Johette’s Advice: Some people, mostly men, hate being photographed. As a photographer I feel it is our responsibility to make the couple, especially the man feel at ease. It helps if you take a zoom lens and just give them some privacy. I always ask my brides to whisper personal stuff in the groom’s ear so that he will forget the photographer is there. This usually captures the most beautiful moments between the couple. It also helps when you meet the photographer before the wedding day, so he/she won’t be a complete stranger taking pictures of you.

I’ve experienced that if the photographer tells the groom exactly what to do they actually don’t mind posing.
