When the big day is over, the one thing you’ll have left is the pictures. You will have them displayed around your home, and you’ll be excited to show the album to all your friends and family. That is, you’ll be excited as long as you look good in all of the pictures. If you have squinty eyes or a double chin, you will wish there were no cameras at your wedding. While the photographer is responsible for getting beautiful shoots, there are a few things you can do to make sure you look good in every picture. Check out these tips.
If you are nervous about the pictures, get some practice. You can do engagement photos with your photographer to get use to his or her style. You can also have friends take pictures to help you get comfortable in front of the camera.
Drink lots of water. Also avoid caffeine and alcohol. Hydrated skin looks best in pictures.
Get plenty of sleep before the big day. No one looks their best when they are tired.
Use concealer. This will hid any under-eye circles or blemishes.
Practice your make-up before the wedding day. Be sure to take pictures of your trial runs to see how you look on camera.
Pack blotting papers in your emergency kit. These will help control the shine without adding more make-up.
Stick out your chin a bit to avoid the dreaded double chin. Also, avoid short photographers. Pictures taken below eye level can create double chins (that is why I could never be a photographer).
If the photographer counts to three, blink half way through the counts. This will prevent closed eyes in the photos.
Have fun. Sincere happiest always looks better in a photo than a fake smile.
Take lots of photos. The more pictures you have to choose from, the more likely you will be find the perfect shoot.
Stand up straight and turn slightly to one side. This will make you look taller and leaner.
Now, say cheese!
