Whether you are a bride, a groom, or a guest, the odds where you will find yourself in front of a camera are pretty big. The photos could be stolen shots or taken with a signal from the photographer. Either or, everyone wants to look good, right?
Apart from wearing your ultra-glamorous bridal gown, there are certain tricks as well as photo poses that can make you look more fantastic. Are you ready to practice a bit? Check out the following phenomenal postures that will fill your wedding album with beautiful memories.
Everyone Has the Best Side
No one’s face is perfectly symmetrical. That is why you should find out which side of your face is better for taking a picture. Is it the left side or right side? To practice, take a few selfies, and ask your friend what she or he thinks? That is how you will look perfect in your wedding photos.
If you need a photo pose advice, then turn to Hollywood stars. They know the secrets on how to look slimmer, relaxed, and most of all, to enhance all the beauty.
Try the classic red carpet poses. Stand rotated by 45 degrees away from the camera, elongate, and cross your leg with the foot pointed at the cameraman. If you really want to look like a superstar, put your hand on the hip.
A double chin can ruin every picture. If you have a round or oval face, you should slightly angle down your chin. Elongate your neck by moving the head forward, but try not to overdo it, since it can look pretty fake.
If you are having this dilemma, you might as well choose a flattering wedding dress with a V-neckline as this will elongate the neck, putting the focus on the neck instead of the chin.
Natural Smile and Relaxed Face
The best photos taken are those with a natural smile. It reflects the inner you. It can also capture your true emotions. So, instead of practicing a big fake smile, just be you. Smile as you smile at your partner’s everyday jokes.
Relax your face and try to work on every muscle. If the photo-shoot takes too much time, then don’t forget to do a little reset. Just relax your neck and face completely before retaking photos.
Smile with Your Eyes
Tyra Banks has one pretty easy suggestion. Instead of smiling wide with your mouth, smile with your eyes. Your eyes will squint, making you look cute, and your photos wonderful. The results will be great – even if you are not actually smiling.
One tip to be able to achieve this is to have a good rest before the big day. The eyes are usually affected by how refreshed or exhausted the person is. If you are too stressed, your eyes can show it. Just as they say, take a beauty rest; and, you’ll know you’ll be able to keep your eyes smiling all day long.
The key to faking the size of your arms is to keep them away from your body. If they are smashed against your body, they can easily appear larger than they really are, and you certainly don’t want that. Put them on the hips or hold the wedding bouquet in front of you. Just make sure they are slightly lifted away from your body.
Strike a Straight Pose
All these tips won’t even count if you don’t stand straight. You need to find your best photo pose and spot and put your shoulders back. Great posture will also make you look happier, fit, and most of all, confident. Think about ballerinas and their lovely straight posture. You can do it!
The Wow Photos
Normally, everyone is stunned when the beautiful bride makes her glamorous entrance. This is one of the most perfect moments to take a photo of the unexplainable emotions of the bride, groom, and guests.
The gorgeous bride wears her lovely smile, the groom with his teary eyes, the loving parents, and the guests, especially the children, being dazzled with the beauty of the angelic bride.
Relax and Have Fun
Do not think about negative vibes; instead, think about the happy day itself. You might think that you are just dreaming but it is actually a reality; so, relax and just have fun. Be like the little children who seem to have nothing to worry about.
If your poses and smiles are fake, the camera will see that. You will never know when the photographer clicks on the camera, wherein, the best pictures are those that aren’t made to be. Always look for candid moments and enjoy your wedding day.
So, apart from being beautifully dressed up, follow the tips above to create a lovely collection of unforgettable memories while you are having a blast every minute of the big day. After all, don’t forget to be yourself.
