Pudding and Plum Photography explains how to capture the perfect wedding photos

Pudding and Plum Photography explains how to capture the perfect wedding photos: Image 1 We don't expect you to be professional models, just your lovely selves. If there are any types of photos of yourself that you really can't stand then let them know; I dislike photos of my profile – you'll never find one of the sides of my face!

Have a pre-wedding shoot with your photographer – this is a great way to see how they direct, respond to you and help you feel at ease. I take my time to work out if a couple prefers me to talk to them or leave them be. Most of the time, with my shyer couples, they prefer to have a little bit of instruction or even distraction. I find that starting by not looking straight at the camera, or having some movement such as walking, can take your mind off the pictures and relax with each other.

Think about what and when you have felt good before – perhaps there's a picture of yourself that you do like? Maybe holding hands or snuggling into them will make you feel more secure? Also try to remember that on your wedding day you'll have a beautiful outfit on and will feel incredible.

During the wedding, I pay particular attention to having short portrait sessions throughout the day, rather than one long session after the ceremony. I find that this means your smile stays fresh and you enjoy those moments together.
