One of the most important decisions you'll make for your wedding day is choosing the right photographer. It's important to hire the best photographer you can afford and then trust them on the day. A professional photographer knows how to put you in the most flattering light and what angles to photograph you from.


While it's tempting to pile together a collection of inspiration photos, it's important to remember that your wedding day is unique and can't be fully replicated. Spending too much time trying to recreate specific shots may take away from being present on the day itself.


In order to create natural, candid, and authentic photos, it's important to stay present and in the moment. Only look at the photographer's lens when they ask you to. The more "in the moment" you are, soaking up everything around you, the better your photos will be. This will allow your photographer to capture authentic expressions and real moments.


Trusting your photographer and being present on the day will also help you feel more relaxed and at ease, which will come across in your photos. Your photographer will be able to guide you and capture those special moments that truly capture the essence of your wedding day.


So, don't stress too much about recreating specific shots or following a set of instructions. Trust your photographer, stay present in the moment, and enjoy your special day. Your photographer will capture those authentic and candid moments that you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Another essential element of looking your best in wedding photos is choosing flattering outfits that complement your body type and personal style. Your wedding day is one of the most significant events in your life, and you want to look and feel your best in the photos that will document it.


For the bride, choosing the right wedding dress is crucial. It's essential to select a dress that makes you feel confident and comfortable. If you're not sure where to start, consider working with a bridal consultant or stylist who can provide expert advice and guidance.


For the groom, a well-fitted suit or tuxedo is key to looking sharp and put together in your wedding photos. It's important to choose a suit that matches the overall aesthetic of your wedding. Consider working with a tailor to ensure a perfect fit.


Having a good makeup and hair team can make a significant difference in how you look in your wedding photos.


Your hair and makeup should complement your wedding day outfit and overall aesthetic. A professional hair and makeup team can work with you to create a cohesive look that reflects your personal style, wedding theme, and venue. They can also ensure that your hair and makeup work well with your outfit and accessories, creating a polished and put-together look.


When hiring, be sure to do your research and look for reviews and examples of their work. Schedule a trial run (and combine it with your engagement session!) before the wedding day to ensure that you're happy with their work and that the look complements your outfit and style. A good makeup and hair team can help you look your best and boost your confidence in front of the camera.


Natural light is your best friend when it comes to capturing beautiful and flattering wedding photos. One way to take advantage of natural light is to schedule some photos during "golden hour," which is just before sunset when the light is soft and warm. Your photographer will always try to find the best, most flattering light during your portraits, but it's also essential that they consider the lighting in other aspects of your day.


When choosing a location for getting ready, make sure that it has plenty of natural light. This will not only create a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere for you and your bridal party, but it will also make for better photos. If the location lacks natural light, consider bringing in some additional lighting to ensure that the photos turn out well.


When it comes to your reception, think about the ambient light and how it will affect your photos. Make sure that you and your partner are well-lit, whether that's by a spotlight, candles, chandelier, or overhead lights. This will help create a romantic and intimate atmosphere and also ensure that your photos turn out beautifully.


Your photographer will be able to guide you on lighting decisions, but it's always a good idea to have a basic understanding of lighting and how it affects your photos. By considering the natural light, choosing the right location, and thinking about ambient light, you can ensure that your wedding photos are not only beautiful but also accurately capture the atmosphere and emotion of your special day.


When it comes to posing for your wedding photos, the best advice we can give is to keep moving and stay relaxed. Instead of stiffly standing in one place, we encourage my couples to interact with each other, touch, walk, and be playful. The more you move and flow, the more natural and relaxed you will look in the photos.


It's important to remember that you don't have to wait for your photographer to direct you every step of the way. While your photographer will guide you and give you some direction, it's also essential to be spontaneous and let your natural chemistry shine through. Don't be afraid to get closer to your partner, embrace them, and show your love for each other in your own way.

Some of the most beautiful and memorable photos are the ones that capture candid moments of genuine emotion and connection between you and your partner. By keeping things relaxed, moving, and flowing, you'll be able to create those kinds of moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.


So, don't worry too much about posing perfectly or following a specific set of instructions. Just be yourself, be natural, and have fun with your partner. Your photographer will be there to capture those beautiful moments, and you'll have stunning wedding photos that authentically represent your love story.
