Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and as such you want to make sure your photographs highlight the most significant moments in the best possible way. Here are five tips to help ensure perfect wedding photos.
- Get an Idea of the Style, Poses, and Overall Vision You Want
Just as no two brides are the same, all Niagara wedding photographers have their own unique style and artistic touch. Before you settle on the photographer, make sure their style is in line with your vision by comparing their portfolio to your wish list. Knowing what you have in mind will also help your photographer plan your shoot accordingly.
- Find the Right Photographer
The right photographer can work magic to immortalize this special time. Finding your ideal photographer takes more than viewing a few pictures online. You should set up an interview with potential photographers to get to know them better. You want to be completely comfortable with them, and you need to be able to trust them to capture those magical moments that will define your wedding day for years to come. For the best match, be sure to:
- Compare Niagara wedding photographers, their online portfolios, and overall personality
- Read reviews and check references
- Make sure the photographer you interview will be the one taking the pictures (larger studios often employ multiple photographers)
- Active Communication is Key
If you’re uncomfortable, it will show in the final print. For wedding photos, you’ll truly love, be open and honest with your photographer. Let them know if you’re uncomfortable, or feeling awkward. If you feel great in a particular pose or location, be sure to let them know that as well. You’ll be grateful you did.
- Your Makeup Matters
When it comes to picking out your wedding day makeup, keep in mind that some bronzers and foundations will appear much more orange or yellow in photographs. The way you apply your makeup can also affect the end results. For the best pictures, speak to your photographer about what they recommend based on your venue and the photographer’s equipment.
- The Smile
Keeping a smile in place for hours at a time is difficult, and a forced smile will stand out in the pictures. To prevent that uncomfortable “are we done yet?” expression, be sure to relax your face between shots. For a natural look, force yourself to laugh. Laughter is contagious and soon you’ll rock the biggest brightest smile!
