A Bit Nervous!

My husband's cousin is getting married at the end of the month to a military guy. Well, she asked me to take her pictures. I am sure honored, but at the same time I am extremely nervous. I love photography and always wanted to do wedding pictures. However, I have NEVER ever, ever taken wedding pictures before. I am so afraid I will mess them up or not do a good job. The last thing I want is for them to hate what I take. Also, I SUCK at poses. I haven't worked with people much so I am all awkward when it comes to posing and such. My camera isn't even that good. I mean, it's a good camera and it was expensive, but I don't have any professional cameras or lenses; none of that stuff. I only have a Canon Powershot s5 iS. I guess I will just practice with my camera some more and look online for ideas and tips.

Do any of you amazing followers have any tips or tricks for me? Any ideas? I just want to do a great job for them!!


  1. I think you are going to do just fine! I have seen a lot of your pictures and they are always amazing! Just have confidence and know you will do GREAT!

    I always like candid better than posed pictures...but that is just my opinion. I think it better captures the couple and the emotions of the day.

  2. Thank you Kim, that means a lot. Of course i'll have candid pictures, I love those too..but by posed, I meant ones with like the wedding party and such. =]


Tell me anything you would like. I will still love ya no matter what. ;) I see comments as both rewarding and helpful. I want to know your thoughts!
