Making Yourself More Photogenic
In addition to finding the right bride and groom poses, there are a few things you and your partner can do to ensure you’re at your most photogenic on your wedding day:
Remember Your Posture
Never slouch in photos; stand up straight, but also relax your shoulders.
Think Happy Thoughts
This shouldn’t be hard to do on your wedding day! People who are exuding happiness are naturally more photogenic.
Smile From Your Eyes
If the rest of your face is tense, a smile won’t fool the camera. Smile with your whole being and radiate love for your partner from your eyes.
Take some time before your wedding day to practice some of these poses and techniques in front of a mirror. When your wedding day comes, being photographed will feel much more natural. You can also photograph each other (or take selfies) using different smiles and facial angles to see what works best.
Engagement photo shoots and wedding photography can be stressful, but it will flow much more smoothly if you’re prepared. We recommend scheduling an engagement shoot to get in some real pose practice so you’ll feel more confident on your wedding day.
What If I Don’t Like Being Photographed?
This is a common issue for many couples. Whether only one of you or both of you don’t like being photographed, your wedding day is not the day to shy away from the camera. If you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera it’s a good idea not to stress too much about how the photo will come out. Your photographer has a highly trained artistic eye that understands how to pose you and your new spouse in ways to complement both of you. One of the best things you can do if you don’t like being photographed is to pretend like you aren’t. Just enjoy the quiet moments with your new spouse and focus on the excitement of the wedding day, rather than dwelling on your discomfort. The more relaxed you are, the better your photos will come out, even if you don’t feel like you are particularly photogenic.
