Tips to Get Comfortable for Your Wedding Photos
Whether you are thinking about your future wedding album or planning a boudoir photoshoot as a gift, you may be wondering how you can take those showstopping wedding photos that you always see online.
Getting comfortable in front of a camera before these events come up can be a great way to get the most out of your hard-earned dollars. Make your engagement shoot, wedding day photos, and maybe even boudoir shots that much more special using these simple techniques.
Find the right photographer
While a pro photographer can be pricey, you are paying for expertise. A good photographer will know how to help you relax in front of the camera and always capture you at your best moment. You would be surprised how much a little bit of direction from a seasoned expert can help your wedding photos turn out!
Get professional makeup
Makeup that looks good in the mirror can translate quite differently in a photograph. While you may love what you have cooked up at home, applying your makeup for day-to-day wear can be quite different than for the camera. Having your makeup done by a pro who knows how to highlight your features for photographs can be a great boost of confidence and will help you look like a model in your wedding photos!
Spend time in front of a mirror
For a few weeks leading up to your engagement photos or the big day, spend some time in front of your bathroom mirror. Make different faces and get acquainted with the way your muscles feel when you’re making a face that you like. It will help you feel more confident in the image you’re projecting in front of the camera.
Learn how to pose
A good photographer will help you get into the most flattering positions, but doing a little upfront research and practice certainly won’t hurt. There are plenty of resources online for helping you learn how to look and feel better on camera. Do a quick google search. YouTube can also be a fantastic resource for this topic. Coming to your shoot with some poses prepared will help you feel more confident and capable.
