The relationship that exists between the bride and the wedding photographer is the longest relationship that the bride will have with any of her vendors, as a result, I always encourage the new wedding photographers to develop a relationship that will last even longer than that. The job of all the vendors ends on the wedding day except for the photographer and videographer.
Keeping a good relation with the bride is the key to success for a wedding photographer. Always treat the client with respect. Do not assume anything make sure you understand what she wants. Do not wait for the wedding day to make her feel comfortable, make her feel at ease from the very first phone conversation.
There is nothing wrong to make her your friend, a relaxed bride poses better, great pose equal better pictures.
