Wedding Photographs: Whether you’re a man or a woman, your wedding day is probably one of the most important days in your life. And it’s probably one of the most important days in your and your spouse’s parents’ lives as well! And as photos are one of the few memorabilia from that special, special day (apart from your wedding rings, of course), it’s important to look good in your wedding photos! Having shot so many weddings over the past few years, I can tell you that “How do we look good in our wedding photographs” is the one question that EVERY couple asks me, no exceptions. Well, I thought I’d put together a few simple tips for you prospective couples to follow and you’ll look good in each and every wedding photo!

Chapter 1: Invest in a quality candid wedding photographer

Look, I know weddings are costly affairs. I’ve seen them all. You’re trying to stick to a budget and no matter what you do, somehow your expenses exceed them every time. Suddenly you realize that your second cousin Binny owns a DSLR and keeps posting those fancy pictures with blurred backgrounds on Facebook all the time! So… you get an idea. Cancel the candid wedding photographer (whose photographs you fell in love with), hire a traditional photographer, and then let Binny take all the candid wedding photographs he can! Genius, right? WRONG.

So wrong. Candid wedding photography is no cakewalk, and I’m not saying that just because I’m a candid wedding photographer! Binny will have to be motivated enough to sit through hours and hours of ceremonies with changing conditions and light, ignore all his friends and family who are probably there having fun and photograph your wedding instead. Now that you remember Binny quit Karate class three days after joining, doesn’t seem so great an idea now, does it? Candid wedding photographers invest lakhs and lakhs in equipment and skill development and know-how to handle all these situations and make any photograph look great. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the numbers and see for yourself!

Chapter 2: Hair and Makeup

Same as for the candid wedding photographer, investing in good hair and makeup artists is a must! Make sure to choose experienced experts who have done weddings before. Well done makeup will barely show, and yet give you a natural glow in your photos!

Hello! I really could have sworn I’ve gone to this amazing site
before but after experiencing some of the articles I
realized it’s a novice to me. Regardless, I’m definitely
happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it
and checking back often!

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Bless you!
