Don’t feel comfy having your photo taken? Me neither! But it really doesn’t have to be something you worry about on your wedding day. If you are thinking “I don’t like being photographed” then this post is for you. I’ll explain how to look your best in wedding photos and how to pose without posing.

“I don’t like being photographed”

“I never know what to do in front of the camera.”
“How do I stand and what do I do with my hands?”
