As a rule, during the wedding ceremony a photographer cannot affect the groom and the bride in any way. In the end, it’s just indecent to interrupt. But we also understand how nervous you can be, when you are afraid to confuse something or (the worst!) to spoil your own photos.

Therefore, we have prepared for you an article which is based on our personal experience.Well, let’s begin!

Smile, smile and smile again! Prepare for the fact that all (!) day you will be in the center of attention not only your relatives and friends, but also camera lenses. So do not be shy of your emotions. Photos with sincere feelings always come out the best. We understand that you can be too excited, however, whatever happens, don’t forget about smile.


Body contact is very important. Hold hands, do not move far apart and allow yourself occasional touches. Firstly, affinity with your loved one will help you calm down on such a nervous day. Secondly, you will feel much more comfortable and relaxed. And thirdly, photos turn out simply incredible!


During the wedding ceremony do everything slowly, calmly and measuredly, so the photographer has enough time to capture all the touching moments. This day is absolutely yours, so don’t be afraid – everyone will follow your time-line.

Putting on your wedding rings, turn your hands toward the photographer. If the wedding ring is suddenly worn tighter, do not pay attention to it – smile and continue putting on the ring.

Be sure to stretch the first kiss. The first kiss is the main and long-awaited moment of any wedding. Give the photographer time to take a few pictures. Believe us, you will not regret it for a moment, when you finally see these photos with your own eyes.

And finally, your pictures will be brilliant if you feel happy. Taking good photos is our task, so let yourself be relaxed and enjoy this magnificent day!
