When I first started shooting weddings several years ago, I struggled with my confidence, always worrying what people thought of me. As lead camera, documenting a wedding itself came natural to me, but I also felt pressure to be directive when it came to helping the bride, groom, bridal party and family members with posing (which is the normal job description of lead camera). I felt uneasy with lots of eyes staring at me, waiting for me to tell them what to do and what’s next. That part felt unnatural- I’ve always been a shy kind of girl! I had to play off like I was confident, until confidence slowly started to come to me. Over time and with more experience, I came to realize that people aren’t judging your every move, they’re just looking for a little guidance- how to pose, where to look- because everyone wants to look their best in pictures. I’ve found that though some people are born with confidence, there are some of us who just need some real life experience to bring our confidence out. Confidence comes with doing, not just thinking about what you should do. The confidence you have and the energy you give off inspires confidence in others and makes a better wedding experience for everybody. Thanks for listening!
