Top wedding photography tips from Emma Gosling Photography

My couples always tell me how much they hate being in front of the lens. However, I can honestly say that once we get into the groove, all we do is laugh and have fun! My advice for couples who are nervous is to build a relationship with your photographer; keep in touch throughout the planning and you may even become friends.

If your photographer offers a pre-wedding shoot, do it. They're an amazing way to get used to the camera and each other, get some awesome photos and maybe even realise that you've mastered the blue steel and have a budding modelling career ahead of you!On the day, just be with each other and don't worry too much about the camera. Have fun and remember that your photographer is only human and (hopefully!) won't bite.
