Tips That Will Make Your Wedding Pictures So Much Better
When it comes to your wedding day, you spend months to prepare. You tailor your dress, order flowers, select the perfect venue, and approve the menu. One thing you might feel like you don't need to prepare for is the photos. After all, your hired photographer will come and make magic. However, there are a few simple preparation tips that actually will make your pictures look so much nicer.
1. Make sure props are photo-ready
Many brides have props they want to use in photos. For example, maybe you aren't wearing a romantic veil during the ceremony, but you want the filmy effect in some of your pictures. Your veil should be handled carefully so that it is not terribly wrinkled when you break it out for pictures. Another common prop is a cape or cloak. This also should be steamed and pressed so that it doesn't look wrinkled and clunky when you put it over your gorgeous bridal gown.
2. Splurge on a professional make-over
You might not think your make-up is that big of a deal when it comes to your pictures, but the lights from the camera and venue, especially at night, can wash out your features. Your make-up should be more heavy than usual, but still tasteful. To avoid the trouble of trying to do your make-up differently than you are used to on your wedding day, hire a professional. The effect will show up in your pictures, and you won't have to worry about how your make-up looks during the day because professionals use quality and long-lasting products.
3. Prepare an alternative picture spot
You can have the best spot planned for your wedding day photo shoot, but something can always go wrong. For example, if it rained the day before, the ground might be muddy in the area you wanted to shoot in, which could ruin your dress. Make a "plan B" that will provide a nice backdrop for great pictures just in case there is something wrong with your original idea when the big day arrives.
4. Make sure you have extra shoes.
You probably have the perfect shoes for walking down the aisle and for dancing at your wedding reception, but do you have the perfect shoes for pictures? For example, heels might not work if you are taking photos in an area with soft ground. Bring some shoes you can move comfortably in, and in shots when your shoes will be important, put them on right before the photographer is ready to snap a picture.
