Wedding photography tips:
Be photo conscious
Your wedding day is a day that all your family and friends including the photographer will want to take photos of every step and action that you take as a bride. Which means you will probably be surprised by a camera in many moments. So remember to be photo conscious as much as you can.
Always put up a smiling face
Make sure that you are always smiling so that the photos can come out great. When you smile as a bride, you will look more beautiful and radiant. I’m sure you will be full of happiness that day, so remember to show it with a big and true smile.
Keep your head and eyes straight looking at the camera
Being in the photo with the eyes closed can be a total nuisance. It’s normal for you to think that you don’t want to be posing all day, and you may like some more natural photos. But when you see a camera, remember to look straight at it, I’m sure you will look gorgeous. If you are afraid of the flashlight coming from the camera, you can always ask your photographer to adjust the camera to auto mode so that you wouldn’t need the flashlight. Even if you will have to turn your neck make sure that your eyes look straight towards the camera.
Learn your best photo posture
There are several good postures for wedding photography. You can practice some of them that you find comfortable and best for you before the big day. Try out different posing styles like, how to angle your body, taking pictures with your best side, placing your legs, using your tongue, etc. See this example postures at the Veronica Hansen wedding photography website.
The fact that you are photo conscious does not mean you should be nervous. Feel relaxed and be yourself. Let the inner glow flow out of you. Make sure that you are tension free. You can try postures that support leaning against your partner if you feel a little tension.
Wear a red matte lipstick
This is one of the major wedding photography tips you will be grateful for. Wearing a red matte lipstick will make your teeth appear more whitish and shiner in the photos. It will also make you look more elegant and classic.
Make sure your hair is not roughen
Weddings can be crazy, but I’m sure you want your hair to stay in its place for the photos. Ask your maid of honor to always stand close to you to help you re-adjust your hair and a touch-up for your makeover if necessary.
As you see, there are some photography tips and ideas, but the most important one is to feel relaxed and confident with yourself. It’s your big day, I’m sure you don’t want to spoil it being too obsessed with photos. And by the way!
