There are few things as tedious to a groom as hours and hours of posing in front of a camera. While the bride is as dazzling and convincing as ever in the fourth hour of photo shoots, the groom’s charming smile has melted into more of an unintentional grimace. But this doesn’t always have to be the case; here are five tips you might want to bookmark for the occasion.
1.Tune In to Tune Out
Keep your earphones tucked in your pocket so you can tune in to your wedding playlist or maybe even the radio. Just follow the bride’s lead on how to pose since you won’t be able to hear the photographer and of course, make sure the earphones aren’t visible in close ups.
You don’t have to be completely alone to meditate. Take this time to relieve wedding stress and the photo shoot monotony by clearing your mind.
The photo shoot is bound to be over by the time you get to three million!
Count the number of poses the photographer requires of you, and have a separate count for the number of poses the bride suggests. If you’re really bored, count the number of retakes for each pose too.
5.The Silver Lining
Remind yourself that once this is over you get to celebrate wedded bliss with your loved ones, you finally get to be with your wife and of course, the lavish dinner buffet.
When you look at your wedding albums years later, you’ll probably realize that maybe the torturous photo shoot was worth it after all.
