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!

KS Studios and Bridal fashion experts at Best for Bride, recommend the following measures for brides and grooms to look their best in their wedding photos.

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!

Ashley & Evan

KS Studios Engagement Portfolio

Engagement sessions have always been very exciting for me because no two couples are alike during a photoshoot – it i a new adventure every time. With Ashley and Evan, it was as if we had known each other forever! I had such an amazing time taking photographs of these two and today I would lke to share some of my work with all of you.

Our photoshoot started at the high school where Ashley and Evan first met. It was such a windy day! Ashley had gotten her hair done specifically for this session and we were so worried about the wind blowing it everywhere. Luckily, however, we were able to get some sentimental shots that were not affected by the wind.

After the school, we headed over to a beautiful street location to do some photos with the fall leaves. This street, I found out while we were shooting, was actually Evan’s grandparents’ street. In talking about that, Evan had suggested that we could look at his grandparents’ property for some potential spots to shoot and in doing so, we found a little forest of beautiful trees that had all turned a vibrant yellow.

Simply perfect!

Our next stop for photographs was by a lake. This lake was near where Ashley and Evan had lived, once upon a time,and it was a place where they both spent a lot of time together. The sky was so beautiful and the sun peaked through just enough to highlight some of Ashley and Evan’s special little moments

The final spot that Ashley and Evan chose for their engagement photography was a trail area called 99 Steps. It was a forest full of beautiful fall colours and A LOT of leaves! After doing so many photos, it was time to have a little fun and relax – who said photoshoots weren’t allowed to be fun?

The two lovebirds had a full on leaf-ball fight, and let me tell you, no one held back!
No hard feelings were left as they ended with a hug.

After some walking around and climbing down 99 steps, we got some more beautiful photo – if only we could post them all!

Of course, we can’t forget the ring! Unfortunately, we didn’t forget to take a picture of the ring but we did forget the ring, inside the crack of a tall tree. After Ashley realized her finger was bare, there was a rush back with panic but luckily, the ring was still there. Note to self, DON’T LET YOUR CLIENT FORGET THE RING!

After 99 steps, we were supposed to be done, however, Evan asked me if I had any other ideas. Consequently, on my way too meet Ashley and Evan, I saw this gorgeous corn field on the side of the road and I thought “Oh if only I could take them there.” So, with that, Evan opened the door for me to offer! Ashley and Evan were very excited to try it out and it ended up being worth every second.

As a photographer, it easy to tell when two people are truly, madly in love, and, with Ashley and Evan, it was quite clear that they were!

We ended the shoot with a “We did it!” photo that just seemed to tie it all together.

This engagement session with Ashley and Evan was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed ourselves from beginning to end. It is extremely important that you pick a photographer that you get along with and it is just as important that we, the photographers, pick clients who we enjoy working with.

Thank you Ashley and Evan for being such good sports and for allowing me to capture your special memories together. Congratulations again on your engagement – I can’t wait to shoot your wedding day!
