    I hate having my photo taken & never manage to smile naturally. I always look really false in posed photos. Does Ian have any tips for me?

    We've looked at so many photographers and haven't got a clue which one to choose. It's all so confusing and I'd really like some advice on what we should be looking for?

    My fiancé and I really like the idea of reportage photography, but I know my parents will want formal photos. We're just not keen on the idea of posed photos. How can we get the wedding photos we want and keep my parents happy?

    I agree tips on how to smile naturally would be great - my fiancé always looks really wooden in photos! :-p

    How long typically does the photographer stay at a wedding? Is it worth paying extra for them to stay later?
