The Benefits of a Pre-Wedding Shoot

All my clients will attest to me making the following two statements in the lead-up to their wedding. One, don’t look at me.  Now, I mean this in a nice way.  I refer to the actual wedding day when we are filming.  I tell couples to only look at the camera if I tell them to and instead look at each other or the photographer.  I rarely ask them to look at my camera as my shooting style does not require them gazing into my lens.  Also, it can ruin both photos and video if the groom looks at the photographer and the bride looks at the videographer. Secondly, I make it clear that I am much more comfortable on ‘my side’ of the camera as opposed to ‘their side’ of the camera.  Couples are often a little daunted by the thought of being the centre of attention.  This leads me to a discussion on pre-wedding shoots.
