There is probably nothing more terrifying for me than being on the other side of a camera. My fiance, Will, and I had our engagement photos taken Saturday morning by a friend from the newspaper.
While I’m completely comfortable working on assignments with her, I’m usually the one getting out of the way of the shot (or accidentally getting in the way and being asked numerous times to move).
Intentionally being in the photo is difficult for me. Is my hair too flat? To puffy? Does my smile look fake? Are my hands in the right place? Are those people looking at us?
So yeah. You can imagine how that went.
Because she’s so good at what she does, our photographer friend suggested we hop in at Central Market York to just get a coffee and sit and talk and pretend for a minute that our photos weren’t being taken.
It made me feel better. And I’m sure the caffeine helped, too.
Pretty soon we’ll have some awesome photos to use for save-the-dates, newspaper announcements and to send out to family. And I hope I don’t look terrified in all of them.
