5 Ways to Have Gorgeous Wedding Photos

As part of our Bride University series, today we are discussing tips on how to have gorgeous wedding photos.  Weddings are one of the most important days of our lives and we want to look our best!  We want our photographs to reflect how happy and beautiful we are on our wedding day.  As photographers, we want to deliver those beautiful photos to you.  Here are a few tips to help you look your best on your day and to help ensure that you have beautiful photography.

1. Get Glammed Up!

This is the perfect time to splurge on a fabulous make-up artist and hair stylist.  Professional stylist just know what looks best in photos.  They will have you and your bridal party picture perfect in no time.  Plus  you will start the day feeling pampered by a professional.









2. Have Original Details

There are magazines and websites full of ways to tell you how to decorate your wedding.  Best advice? Do what you love!  It is your day.  The more that you fill your venue with flowers and decorations that you love, the more the wedding will reflect who you are.  If you have an event planner, don’t be afraid to suggest the things that you love and want to incorporate into your wedding.







3.  Clear the Clutter

Try to keep the bridal suite or getting ready area free of clutter.  It is difficult to have beautiful getting ready pictures with bras, drinks, and loads of other things hanging around in the background.  One simple solution is to have a large plastic tote and throw everything into it.  That way it can easily be moved out the way when it is time for the bride to be getting dressed.



4. Have a Solid Timeline

Accurate time lines help everyone including you stay more relaxed!  Leave time in your day to just relax.  Also realize that most weddings do not run on time, and that is OK as long as you planned ahead and added extra cushion time in.  Wedding photos take about 2 – 3 minutes per photo.  Leave your photographer enough time to capture the parts of your day that mean the most to you.  If you are having an outdoor wedding, schedule it at a time when their is soft light outside (usually about 90 minutes before sunset).   This will make your wedding day pictures rock!




5. Have a Blast

Nothing makes a bride and groom look as gorgeous as when they are laughing, smiling, and enjoying the moments of their wedding day. Smile a lot and enjoy your wedding day!
