5 TOP TIPS for great wedding photos
What can you do to have some really great wedding photos? There is a lot you can do, actually. This blog post starts a short series about some useful tips on what YOU can do to have some really amazing images from your wedding day.
1) Find the right photographer for you
First of all, and this is very important, choose the photographer you really like and trust. Only then you will have some really amazing pictures from your wedding day because you won’t have to worry about your wedding photographer. That’s why the initial consultation with your photographer is so important, or at least a Skype or telephone conversation. Try to get to know them a little bit.
Your wedding morning
Now, let’s talk a little bit about the morning preparations. I have already written a separate blog post about that part of the wedding day here: Bridal preparations – your wedding morning Let’s just add a couple of the most important tips here:
2) Get some rest the day before
Have a proper rest before your wedding day, go to bed early! You’ll need that energy for the dance floor!
3) Prepare your room
Make sure the room in which you are getting ready is clean and tidy. You don’t want any plastic bags from your supermarket to be visible on your wedding pictures right? Really think about it and hide all the socks, empty shoe boxes and any other unnecessary and distracting items.
4) Plan your morning
If you want some professional pictures of your rings or anything else that is important to you – just put them in one place to avoid rushing and looking for them on your wedding morning. Being organized helps people relax.
5) Just have fun
Really enjoy the moment – enjoy your getting ready. This is your day, your moment. Be happy!
Again – have a proper rest before your wedding day, go to bed early!
Hope you’ve found it useful. In my next post I will write about the wedding ceremony – you can do so much to have some great wedding photos from that part of the day too!
