Have a few drinks before 😉

Fiance is a little awkward in front of cameras, so we had a couple of cocktails before our E-pics and our pictures look very natural, and we look very happy.

Don’t get sloshed, though! 😀

Pay attention to each other and not the crowd.  It’s all about your own interaction.  Be careful with the drinking, that can really backfire on you.  Try not to overthink it, you’ll be fine.

Eat well, sleep well, and breathe. Concentrate on each other and what you love about where you are walking around the city (or at your wedding, where you are in the venue or who you are with). Talk about your memories in these places as you pass them by. Focus on those details, your senses, the colors and textures around you that help you to remember. Once you focus there, all the nonsense of who might be looking at you dissolves away. Besides, most people will be too into their own busy days to bother save for a passing glance. Your “job” for your e-pics is to give your love and attention to your Fiance as his is to give his love and attention to you. So. Focus on each other.

Focus on each other and think of fun and funny things for maximum unforced happiness and laughter. Your photographer will direct you appropriately, too. You can practice in the mirror ahead of time to know what smiles and angles look good on you, so that those poses become natural — but, like I said — trsut your photographer. 🙂
