Wedding Day Photography Tips to Help You choose.

Be up-front about your expectations.

Don’t be afraid to tear out magazine photos to show your photographer. Or to request photographs of special heirlooms or wedding day accessories.

Wedding Day Photography Makeup Tips.

Pre-Wedding photo shoot.
Let’s face it. Those magazine bride photos that you see are a plan from hundreds of options.

Planning a pre-wedding shoot will undoubtedly improve your pictures. This practice gives the photographer the chance to capture that once in a lifetime moment for you.

Scheduling a set time for the photo session.
To minimize wedding day photography during the cocktail hour try to take a majority of the formal pictures before the ceremony.

Some photos could be the bridesmaids. Groomsmen. The bride with her family. And the groom with his family.

Wedding Day Photography Restrictions to know depending on your location.

Know about restrictions.
Get consent from the ceremony location as to where photos and video are allowed. Many churches, synagogues, mosques and chapels have specific areas that cannot be photographed or filmed. Make sure to check with them before the big day.

Consider a unique wedding-day gift.
A gift for the groom is to capture the bride getting ready.

With the bride’s permission the groom is allowed a peek into the bride’s final moments before they are married. This photo becomes a keepsake for the groom.

Wedding Day Photography make for you and your bridesmaids.

Plan a makeup rehearsal:
Your wedding day is not the right time to experiment with makeup and hairstyles. Be sure to plan a separate day to have a hair and makeup dress rehearsal.

Try a few styles. Pick one that’s sophisticated and romantic. But lets you look beautiful and radiant.

Know your make-up.
Being a blushing bride may take more than the simple mascara and lip gloss you’re used to.

For your wedding day add a bit more make-up. You want to appear as beautiful and glowing in your portraits as you are in real life.

Consider a bit of blush around the cheeks or matte lipstick. But don’t go overboard. Let your true beauty shine through on this joyous occasion.

Have your bridesmaids match.
Double check your bridesmaids. Try to get their makeup to match each other.

Having a theme with hair and make up makes the wedding party look more unified. And ties into the overall wedding theme.

Find time for intimate shots.
Let the photographer take shots of just the two of you. Try sneaking off to a remote location for a few minutes. Capture a truly loving moment that will highlight your wedding album.

Breathe, relax and smile.
The brides who take the best pictures are always the ones who smile the most. They look as though they don’t have a care in the world.

While this day is to share with friends and loved ones it is really about the wedding couple. Enjoy your wedding laugh, smile and gaze at your new husband/wife.

Forget about the cameras. Have fun and share the secret!
