A friend saw a selfie I'd taken the other day and said "that sums up why people like having you as their photographer". Aparrently he didn't mean my beard. His point is that I am great at making people feel comfortable with me as a photographer, to the point that they end up having a laugh with me. A lot of photographers, he said, make people feel uncomfortable - they're often not a people person!
In fairness to him, I do pride myself on making people feel comfortable in front of the camera - most people don't like having their photo taken, and it's my job to help them relax and get some great shots. Not every wedding ends up with selfies - every wedding is different. But most of the people in these photos do hate having their photos taken, and I'm proud of these moments.
