KS Studios’ 5 Tips to Help You Look Amazing in Your Wedding Photos
If everything progresses as per plan you should look your absolute best on your wedding day. The tricky part is making sure you look just as good in your wedding photos. Not everyone is naturally photogenic. Also, you will find yourself in front of the camera for most of your wedding day and it is not easy to smile and look great in every shot. At KS Studios, we understand how important it is that you look amazing in your wedding photos and there are a few things you can do to help make sure this happens!
1. Practice poses
Although all your photos will not be posed, you can prepare for those that will be. Take a look at previous photos and identify your best profiles and poses. Practice them in front of the mirror, so it is easy to settle into these poses when you are being photographed. You can also ask your photographer to suggest poses and angles that look best on camera. Typically a professional photographer will have an arsenal of tips and tricks to make you look your best!
2. Make sure your wedding hairstyle and makeup are photogenic
Just because your hairstyle and makeup look great in person, that doesn’t mean it will be the same in your photos. For example, some bronzers and fake tans look unnatural and harsh in photos, while some glitters can make you look sweaty. You can often avoid such disasters by scheduling a trial hair and makeup session before your wedding day. At KS Studios, we recommend booking this trial for your engagement photos. This gives you the chance to see whether the look you chose translates well in pictures. If you’d like some more information on things to avoid, take a look at this article on the Huff Post for a whole list of possible wedding day beauty mistakes.
3. Think of lighting
Lighting plays an important role in determining the quality of your photographs. Natural lighting is best for capturing beautiful photographs. Keep this factor in mind when planning your photography sessions into the wedding schedule. Have your wedding ceremony when the venue is bathed in natural light, and your pictures will be perfect. For outdoor shots, a few hours before sunset is the best time for your photos. Also, don’t be scared if it’s a little cloudy on your wedding day – a cloudy day makes for the best portraits outdoors!
4. Freshen up between shots
Your wedding day will be long, and your makeup and hair may not stay fresh throughout. Pack a touch-up kit with all your hair and makeup essentials, to use during the day. Freshen up every once in a while, and especially between locations and shots, so you look picture perfect throughout the day.
5. Relax and enjoy your photo sessions
As your wedding day carries on, don’t be surprised if you are too tired to smile at the camera after a while. When stressed or exhausted, don’t fake a smile. Instead, feel happy and it will reflect in your eyes. This natural expression will look much better than a forced grin. Make sure to schedule enough time for your photo sessions, so that they move at a relaxed pace and so that you can enjoy and be involved in it. Don’t be afraid to have a little fun – candid moments are always the most memorable!
