Wedding films are big these days. Apart from posting nice prenup photos, soon-to-weds are now fond of sharing their own wedding and films and save-the-date videos with their friends, usually through social media. In fact, some of these amazing materials have already gone viral after touching the hearts not only of their intended audience but also of total strangers.
But of course, we have to admit that not all brides and grooms-to-be find the idea of producing their own wedding film enticing. For camera-shy individuals, just the thought of shooting a film can already be a legit source of anxiety. What if things get awkward during the shoot, anyway?
To help you, here are some simple ways on how you can avoid awkwardness while shooting your very own wedding film or save-the-date video:
Choose a team of experienced wedding film makers.

Awkwardness may come not only from you but also from your wedding videographers who don’t have a clue on how to handle the situation properly. This is why it’s safe to go for a team of experienced film makers. Since these professionals have already worked with countless couples, they already know how to deal with you and make you feel at ease. It’s also easier to feel comfortable around them because they are well-versed with the entire process and are knowledgeable in handling all the equipment. In short, things are just smoother with them. It’s easier to just have fun and go with the flow.
Befriend the entire crew.

Scared of committing mistakes while shooting the film? Don’t! Instead of feeling scared in front of the crew, befriend them! Think of them as your friends who simply want to help you come up with a highly creative and lovely wedding film.
Just be yourself.

The production team members, videographers and directors included, are not there to judge you, so there is nothing to worry about. Just be yourself, show your fun, side and things should be fine. Also, don’t hesitate to show how spontaneous and sweet you are with your partner.
Viewers of your wedding film may sense it if you’re feeling awkward in front of the camera, so do your best to relax and enjoy the process. This is your wedding film, after all. It’s supposed to be fun and exciting!
