Tips To Plan A Photogenic Wedding
Your wedding photos are records of your wedding day for the future. However, these photographs are not just about documenting the events of the day; they should also capture the happiness and special moments of the day in the best way possible. Planning a photogenic wedding is easy, when you have the right photographer for the job and when you give them the time and materials they need to capture the uniqueness of your wedding day. Here are some tips to help you ensure your wedding is photogenic.
1. Allot enough time for your photo sessions
Beautiful photos happen when the couple are relaxed and the photographer can exercise his/her creativity. It is never the same when the photos are taken in a hurry. So, give your photographer enough time and space to work some magic.
2. Keep everything pretty for the getting-ready photos
Give some thought to how your surroundings will look in your getting-ready shots. A spacious and well-lit room will look better than a dingy, dark, and cluttered one. Hang your wedding dress on a beautiful hanger and arrange accessories to look attractive. It will look pretty when everything is organized and generally neat in the background of your pictures.
3. Create a shot list in advance
Plan your group photos and decide on the photo sessions with your photographer ahead of time. This will help to streamline the entire process. Discuss the group portraits and other must-haves with your photographer so that he/she is prepared to capture those moments. Inform family or friends who are to be in the different photos in advance, so they are where they should be at the time they will be needed.
4. Take time to enjoy the special moments of the day
Take your time to relax and enjoy the special moments and events like your wedding day first kiss or tossing the bouquet. When you do them slowly, your photographer will have enough time to capture the expressions and joy of that special moment. If you are too hasty, your photographer will just be able to take a quick picture and it won’t be as perfect as it ought to be.
5. Plan photogenic settings
Choose your venue, food, décor, and bridal party outfits with the aesthetic factor in mind. Opt for bright colored food, beautiful decor, bridesmaids dresses, and accessories that enhance the beauty of the scenery and that will look good on camera. Choose contrasting and complementing colors in your wedding palette carefully, for the best effects.
6. Trust your photographer
Your photographer has the expertise to plan your shots in the best way. This is not the first time he/she has shot a wedding. Avoid too much supervision or a long list of planned pictures, and you are likely to get the best results. Follow his/her suggestions, even if you aren’t sure of it. The more freedom you give your photographer, the greater the chances are for your wedding pictures to be fantastic.
