The Bride’s Guide

  1. Your bouquet is a meaningful symbol of your wedding. Make sure that you are holding it on a waist level, when you walk down the aisle.
  2. When it comes to that “You may kiss the bride!” moment, it’s always a good idea to hold the kiss for a couple of seconds longer so that you may be photographed from all angles. Give it about 5 seconds so that the photographer may have the opportunity to get your best angle and capture it in a photograph.
  3. Act natural. Most wedding photographers look for those unscripted moments that make the moment more special and interesting. You’ll never know if that next shot of you laughing carelessly would probably your best one!
  4. The moments before the wedding are crucial to any wedding photographer. This is the best time for them to capture those real moments, such as bridesmaids helping each other with their dresses, those minutes when the bride finds herself alone with herself, her parents, and her loved ones, the groomsmen putting on their ties and helping the groom, etc. Make sure to look at your best during these moments—smile, laugh, be natural.

Before we go..

Your wedding is bound to be special, and your wedding photographer will make sure that you’ll have a memorable one through capturing moments that will define your wedding through wonderful and beautiful photographs. Looking beautiful on your wedding is always a priority, and photographs serve as a reminder on how spectacular you looked during your big day. Congratulations!
