How to look the best on your big day and its photos is an unending topic. And so, we continuously give tips here on this topic from time to time. Today too we’ve come up with a few more tips that brides will find practical, easy and helpful, to add that much desired edge to their wedding photos.
1. Release Tension
This is an easy thing to do. You just have to roll your shoulders a few times, that’s it! Let’s face it, you are stressed up with the thought of your wedding though it’s the happiest moment of your life. But there’s really nothing to worry about. By rolling your shoulders, you’ll realize that and you can face the camera with a great smile.
2. Get Closer
While posing for photos with your partner, get a little closer than you would normally. According to the professional wedding photographers at Tobiah Tayo Photography, distance that may not feel too much during the shooting may look bigger in actual photos creating a feeling of lack of intimacy. Don’t even hesitate to snuggle up each other!
3. Tie Up Hair
Although wearing hair down may be one of your most favorite styles, for your wedding photographs it may be a bit detrimental because it obscures your face unless you are directly facing the camera. If you don’t like an up-do much, choose a style with which your hair can’t come in the way of your face while being photographed.
4. Don’t Let Your Hands Hang
Remember to do something or the other with your hands. They should be on your groom’s cheeks or around waist, but should not hang down.
5. Keep Your List Short and Have More Time
You may want to have many photos. But remember that the fewer the photos, the longer time you and your photographer will get and a lot of time is a key to great photos. With fewer items on your photo list, your photographer can try various setups and let every person sit, lean or take different angles comfortably so that s/he can capture the most flattering photos of your wedding party. It’s better to place every person into the space and work with each individual rather than rushing through the job just to have more number of photos.
Lastly, if you are feeling very anxious about the photos, share a glass of cocktail with your partner and that may blunt your anxiety so that you can feel confident before the camera.
Hope these tips help you having great photos of your big day of which you can be proud for the rest of your life.
