5. Have that sibling or friend you're super comfortable with? Make sure they're always around!
If you have someone who keeps you your own self and basically you're comfortable around then make sure they tag along with you while you're getting clicked. Take them along for your pre-wedding and have them near you at all times in your ceremonies. Ask them beforehand to make sure they keep you sane and comfy and just be there with you being your hype person behind the camera.
6. Communication is the key.
One of the most important aspects of getting the perfect wedding photos and videos is to communicate about everything related with your photographer and with each other. Have an open discussion with your bae about the kind of shots you want and how they want the wedding album to look. But most importantly have a clear conversation with your photographer. Tell them about your camera shyness, let them know what you want and take his advices. Talk it out with your photographer because he's only going to help you out while making sure you both are super chilled out and look your absolute best in photos and videos.
7. Be yourself, take it lightly and have fun.
The key to making sure that you get happy and fun-filled photos are by being your own self. Believe us guys, you don't really have to try hard to pose or get those perfect videos. Simply being yourself, being light-hearted and having fun all the while is the best way. Don't pretend to be someone you're not, don't do difficult and tricky poses and don't try to look like those couples on magazine covers. Be your raw self, feel and focus on the love & bond that you two share, be in the moment and let your photographer do the rest of the magic.
