2. Be In the Moment
I know that this may be better said than done with all that goes into the big day. However, I think if ever a day and time to be in the moment it would be this day with your new husband or wife, friends, and family. When your are truly in the moment, you are not worried about what is happening outside the current moment. It is also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety on the day.
3. Trust the Professionals
Hiring wedding professionals is done so for a reason, you want to know without a shadow of a doubt that who you hire knows what they are doing, are experienced, recognizes your the best angles, gives posing direction, works with different and unexpected lighting conditions, chooses the most flattering clip/pics and the list goes on. So rest assured that when hiring a professional wedding photographer or videographer that it is truly someone that is professional to cover any worries that you may have.
4. Don’t Be Afraid to be Silly
From my experience, the best and most genuine candid moments that I capture are when couples are being their authentic silly selves. Don’t worry about looking goofy or stupid, again your trust your professionals to find the gems that scream “THAT’S ME” in your element, your orb. As we capture what most may not see with the naked eye. So, make those funny faces, tell that inside joke, and whatever you want to showcase your true authentic love.
5. Happiness Looks Good on Everyone
Speaking of love, what is deemed one of the happiest days of your life. Ideally your wedding day should have you gleaming ear to ear, surrounded by best buds, close family, and everyone looking for you to have the most perfect day. And of course, finally marrying the love of your life. Such a precious day, be merry and enjoy every moment of it and if all you do is just that, you will look amazing in front of the camera.
