So, you want to look perfect on your wedding photos – who doesn’t after all? This is you special day, it’s a once in a lifetime kind of event, and you want the memories you capture today to be, well, picture-perfect.
Of course, you have already invested quite a lot of time in making sure you look perfect live. You have the most stunning dress, you have already picked your hairstyle and makeup, and you’re ready to walk those high-heels down the aisle too.
What about the photos, though? What are the secrets to looking amazing in pictures – and, more specifically, in wedding pictures?
We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.
- Study the universally flattering poses of Hollywood. The most famous one involves you standing turned about 45 degrees towards the camera, with one foot in front of the other and the weight of your body falling on the foot that’s behind you. This pose is something you see most VIPs do on the red carpet – and there’s a very good reason it’s so popular: it actually flatters anyone, of any size, any body shape, any height.
- Practice in the mirror. Sure, you might feel a bit weird to do this, but trust us: it can make the world of a difference. Not because you’ll be able to take those exact poses and reproduce them in front of the camera, but more because it will give you the self-confidence you need when you are being photographed.
- Choose an adequate makeup. Most bridal makeup styles are great on camera, but there are some things you might want to avoid because they aren’t very flattering for everyone. For instance, pink (especially as an eyeshadow) tends to make people look more tired.
- Last, but definitely not least, smile. It’s the one ingredient that makes you truly radiant in your wedding photos. If you don’t want to grin in all of your pictures, practice a slight smile (the kind that’s barely there, almost like it’s just an “eye smile”) – it will still make you look amazing in the photos!
