Being the center of attention in your wedding video can be very overwhelming and nerve-wracking, especially when you are not used to be in front of the cameras. Luckily, there are ways that the couple can do in order to make it a bit more relaxed and a comfortable one.
According to Bogdan Neagoe being nervous is a normal thing. He often suggests couples to get a pre-wedding photo shoot, this can help create a connection between him, his team and the couple. Thus, creating such connection can make them work easier and will make them feel relax and also will make them enjoy every moment during the wedding day.
For Marli Koen, choosing someone who you can connect with on a personal level is an important part and it should be best to enjoy each other’s company. She highly advised to have a pre-wedding shoot, that would definitely make you forget about the camera and ease into enjoying the moment in a beautiful setting.
While for Vail Fucci, he said that you have to focus your attention on each other, instead of focusing on the camera. Be your natural self, thus allowing the photographer to capture you two interacting without being too worried about posing.
Chris Cardone would recommend to really contact your photographer and have a prep session setup. This will teach you the posing throughout the day and will create a level of comfort with the photographer. Also, he says sipping a little wine may help calm the nerves.
According to Christian De Leon, he would usually start the shoot with a warm-up, to be able to connect with the bride. This will allow him to tell her to imagine that as if there are no cameras in front of her and will ask her to just be herself. That will make the shoot look natural and much more beautiful and less nervous.
Keera Schneider thinks it’s important to give couples a little bit of direction and let them focus on each otherinstead of worrying about a camera.
Thus, the ultimate key here is just to be yourself. Trust also your wedding photographer and videographer for them to do some magic on your wedding videos. If at one point you will feel tense or uncomfortable, just give your partner’s hand a squeeze and remember what your wedding day is all about- and that is celebrating your love for one another.
