Joanna & John's Catholic wedding in Ravello

Joanna and John were married on a beautiful sunny fall day in Ravello.  
Like most of my brides and grooms, Joanna had contacted me by email earlier in the year, and quickly after this we had set up a phone call to discuss her wedding in person. She had been having some difficulty with her wedding planner and  she seemed to be feeling a little stressed out. After we discussed all the details and got to know each other a little better we quickly understood that we were going to get along great.
Joanna and John like many other couples did not think they would be comfortable in front of the camera and were a little hesitant about having their picture taken. This often happens that one person or sometimes both the bride and groom are a little camera shy. One of the best ways to get over this feeling is to get to know each other better BEFORE the wedding day. I am always happy to exchange emails, set up phone conversations, and I ALWAYS meet with the bride and groom in person before the wedding day. 
Your photos will reflect all that happens on the day, so if you are relaxed and comfortable with your photographer that is a great start right?
