Which bride doesn’t want to look the most gorgeous of all women in the world on her wedding day? Every bride wants! However, the question is how to do that. Surely a photographer knows that well. Here’s a leading female wedding photographer, Annabel, sharing valuable tips with our would-be brides on how to look the most beautiful in their wedding photos.
1. Practice Celebrity Poses
Hollywood celebrities are our cult figures and we love to copy everything they do; so, why not copy their poses before the camera? For example, try this one:
- Stand with your front a bit turned away from the camera; but your face should be towards the camera
- Stand putting your most weight on the back foot while stretching the other leg and crossing it in front and pointing toward the camera
- Bend the front knee so as to avoid looking stiff or unnatural
- Add style by placing the front hand on waist
- Remember to smile!
2. Smile with Your Eyes
Less smiley faces are trending today in wedding photos; but, by not smiling, you may look as if you don’t want to be there. If you don’t want that to happen, learn to smile with your eyes. This will help you avoid looking wilted and at the same time, looking stylish.
3. Be Cautious with Your Makeup
Discuss with your photographer too while choosing the right type of makeup for looking beautiful even in photos as in real life. The reason for this is the camera can show unwanted details which may make you look silly! For example, oranges or yellows are turned to be something else in your photos, e.g. carroty! Also glitter may look more like sweat in photos. So, choose makeup considering looking photogenic.
4. Choose Dress and Accessories So As to Look Relaxed
If you are wearing a bridal dress, shoes and other accessories that are uncomfortable, it’s hard to look beautiful in your photos because you will look tired. Your bridal dress and all other things should be beautiful but they should be comfortable too so as to look relaxed and gorgeous in the photos.
5. Make Arms Look Slimmer
Most bridal gowns are sleeveless and brides tend to keep arms close to the body or locked behind so as to hide underarm waggle. However, this can cause an exactly reverse effect; your arms may look bigger and shoulders wider. So, keep your arms far-flung, though not very far, just enough to offer them a breathing room.
