I believe that happy people make happy pictures. Having your photo taken doesn't have to be a drag. I work very quickly, but at the same time I always advise my brides during the scheduling process to allow plenty of time to have all their photos taken so that it doesn't dominate the whole wedding day or add any extra stress. What's the point of capturing memories if all the memories you have are of having your photo taken?! I've got an extremely dynamic personality and I keep things very upbeat to stimulate great candid moments, but I also balance that by being a "fly-on-the-wall" during the emotional times when the family is sharing a tender moment.
