Making time for bride and groom portraits
I know, I know, you don't want to turn your wedding day into a photoshoot.
You also hate being in front of a camera.
You would much rather be with your mates, drinking prosecco and having a laugh or worrying about your speech later.
In fact, thinking about it, the idea of staring poignantly, soulfully into the mid-distance fills you a special kind of dread and you've decided, you do not need a picture of you flicking the (wedding) finger. Ever.
I do get all of this. I gave my own wedding photographer approximately seven minutes to do bride and groom portraits before I skipped my way back to the party, eager to find that bottle of beer I'd been swigging from that I'd left on the side (classy). But look what can happen when you give up some space and time to do some couple portraits. Yeah, so they're not not-cheesy, but they're also rather nice, no?
I don't want you to feel like a bad actor in a second-class soap opera when having your portraits taken. Believe it or not, the majority* of couples do not need much direction - you're loved up, you've just committed yourself 'til death etc and I would have been working hard getting to know you as a couple. Besides, the mid-distance thing tends to happen anyway. And I promise, it will be just as much fun as having drinks with your mates.
*and no, you are probably not the exception.
Pui : Thanks Anne :)
