6 Wedding Photography Tips & Tricks for Brides
If you’re like a lot of people, stepping in front of the camera is a nerve-racking experience. Don’t worry, Lavan Photography is here to help by dishing some tips that’ll ensure you look amazing in your pictures. Being one of the most experienced & talented wedding photographers in Melbourne, Australia, they will ensure you look fabulous from head to toe throughout your big day!
Do a trial run of your makeup and hair. Both of you! If you can, photograph yourselves with trial hair and makeup to see how it shows up on the camera. Then, make any appropriate adjustments.
Choose all the appropriate undergarments for your big day. From your crinoline slip to your bustier to shapewear, what you’re wearing underneath your gorgeous dress matters. Those items play a major supporting role — literally!
Relax. We know it’s easier said than done, but when you’re relaxed and happy, that makes for some gorgeous photographs! When we aren’t shooting your posed portraits, just forget that we’re even there. Heck, you can even forget that all your friends and family are there for a few moments if you’d like! Knowing you’re being photographed can make you nervous, but try to forget that you’ve got a lens pointed in your direction — or an audience — and just enjoy everything happening around you.
Be mindful of your posture. When we are posing you for your formals, we have no problem reminding people to stand up straight. However, we can’t exactly interrupt the ceremony should we notice slouching!
Don’t be afraid to laugh or show emotion. This is your wedding day! Emotion is good! Let it spill out of you like the ooey-gooey Nutella does in my fabulous cookies!
A hearty laugh and genuine smile are just as beautiful as those pensive moments, tears and excited expressions. Don’t feel like you have to force a smile or a certain expression at any given time throughout the day. Instead, just live in the moment and be yourself. Feel everything and don’t worry about looking a certain way on camera.
First and foremost, trust your photographers. Lavan Photography with over 9 years of wedding photography experience can be one great choice to help you so that you look your absolute best in every single photo.
