Don’t overuse the sunbed or spraytanning! These tans tend to give a yellow/orange tone on your skin and over doing it will ruin your photos!
Do not have a facial a few days before your wedding – facials help wtih opening the pores and can cause your skin to break out.
Make sure that your proparations venue is air conditioned and gets lots of natural light. Getting ready in a luxury environment does something for the soul. Preparation photos taken in a posh room will make you look like royalty!
Champagne makes you sweat – drink some while your hair is being done, but keep the comsumption down while the make-up is done.
Do not take any calming or other medication that you have’nt taken before. The last thing you want to happen is to break out in a rash or to react in a strange way.
Get your room tidy and need before any photos are taken. Photos just look better in a tidy room.
Be ready 1 hour before the ceremony (without traveling time) to do some individual bridal photos.
Spend the few bucks extra to get yourself beautiful hangers for the dresses and suits. This will just look better on the photo than plastic hangers.
Please have some new bottle of perfume / aftershave available for photos. Even if you do not use it, it just makes for better photos than old, used bottles.
At the ceremony, let the MC advise the guest not to stand infront of the photographer/s to get their photo. You pay us to do the photos and expect to capture every moment. They can capture anything from where they are seated or stand behind us.
Please make sure with you Pastor / Dominee that they allow us to take photos during the ceremony. Some are very strict and do not allow it.
For the photoshoot – Be comfortable in whatever position the photographer asks you to pose – If you’re not, adjust your position until you are, otherwise it will show up on your photos.
Never stand square to the camera. Put one sholder a bit forward and turn the hips when posing. The slight angle will accentuate the hips and make your body look like that of a model.
Pull that stomack in – chest out – shoulders back!
A hand in the hip will make the waist look thinner.
Take a pair of comfortable shoes with. We will make you climb mountains just to get that shot..LOL. Rather do this in the comfortable shoes than your high heels.
