10 Tips to Looking Your Best in Wedding Pictures

You are getting married, and we know you have put a lot of time and effort into looking gorgeous for your wedding day, so let’s make sure that translates into your wedding photos!

Channel Your Inner Kim Kardashian: Kim knows a thing or two about looking 10 pounds lighter in front of the camera. Try and practice this classic flattering Hollywood pose: 1. Stand with your hips rotated about 45 degrees away from the camera. Anything turned away from the camera appears smaller.

2. Put your weight on your back foot.

3. Elongate your other leg and cross it in front, with the foot pointed toward the camera.

4. Bend the knee a bit so you don't lock up or look stiff. Even though your dress will probably cover your legs, bending your knee will help you to have a flattering curve in your photo.

5. If you're not holding flowers, you may want to put a hand on your hip.

6. Don't forget to smile!

Afraid you won't remember this? It's okay, we'll help you with posing so that you'll look your very best on your wedding day!

Relax your face

Wedding pictures can take a while, and grinning through every one can be tiring—especially if those beautiful shoes are making your feet blister. So if you start to feel your brow furrow, your eyes squint or smile stiffen, feel free to push the reset button: Close your eyes, let your lips fall back into place. When we begin to see a couple tensing up, we will suggest a pose where they are looking at each other or where their eyes are closed. This keeps the couple engaged and also helps to rest their faces for the next round of smiling family photos.

Smile with your eyes

During the posed photo session at your wedding, there may be interruptions or you may have a hundred things on your mind and that can lead to a smile that looks forced or unnatural. If this happens, just relax your face and be in the moment. Enjoy being a princess on your big day and focus on the photographer. Many times, if the bride starts looking stressed or unnatural, we will lighten the mood by saying something funny, or having the couple look at each other, then look at us. Looking at the one you love always improves your expression. Slightly tilting your head or squinting your eyes a bit adds expression and makes your portraits a bit more dramatic.
