How to Feel Confident in Front of A Camera

If you’re someone who is camera-shy, the idea of having your picture taken on your wedding day might make you feel a little nervous! Not only do you have to contend with the eyes of your friends and family watching you but there are cameras capturing every moment. The last thing you want is to receive your wedding photos back and find you’re pulling the most awkward faces because you feel uncomfortable.


With more than half of the public disliking photos of themselves, Abraxas, professional Bedford Photographers, have provided their top tips on feeling more confident in front of a camera.


Get Your Hair and Makeup Professionally Done


Your wedding day is a moment you will look back on forever and so, it’s important to look like the best possible version of yourself for the photos. We recommend having your hair and make-up done professionally on the morning of your big day. It will leave you feeling much more confident in yourself and this will show in front of the camera.


Practice Smiling


Trust us on this! No matter how happy you are on your wedding day, smiling on command can be harder than you think. If you’re struggling to bring out a smile for every photo, why not try Tyra Banks’ ‘smizing’ technique or choosing memories that will always make you smile! By trying these techniques, you will feel much more confident about posing for your wedding cinematography.


Choose a photographer you get on well with.


It’s easy to choose a photographer based on their portfolio, but if you don’t click with them, you may feel less confident in front of the camera. Before you book your wedding photographer and videographer, book a meeting with them so you can go through the services they provide and the type of shots you would like. Not only will you be able to choose the shot you would like to see in your wedding album, but you will get a feel for the photographer; which will help you feel more confident in front of the camera.


Having complete trust in your photographers to get it right for you is also very important, you need to feel confident that you’ve booked a company that will make your wedding photography effortless and enjoyable for you. The actual experience on the day has to be a good one for you, so choose a company that has photographed thousands of weddings and get it right all the time, regardless of how nervous a bride and groom may be or if the weather isn’t on your side. Photographers who can handle those situations with ease will help your confidence.
