Tips for Fabulous Wedding Day Photos
By Carol's Photography

#1 - The most important thing you can do to make your wedding day go smoothly is to allow plenty of
time for the unexpected.
The wedding day will most likely be hectic , and having extra time to catch your breath will greatly reduce your stress level! Things in general will always take longer than you anticipate. Get a realistic idea of how long it will take to do your hair & makeup. Most brides tend to underestimate how long this will take, allow extra time!

#2 - Hire a professional photographer. Your wedding photographs are so very important.  When its all said and done with,  it's all you have left.  There are no second chances to do re-takes , so it's very important to find the right photographer who you can trust to capture those beautiful moments of your
wedding . You'll look at your photos to re-live one of the most precious days of your life.

#3 - Remember you look  more graceful holding your bouquet lower which adds a nice curve to your arm.
Holding the bouquets up to high looks awkward .

#4 - Make sure the men check their tuxes before they leave the tux shop
to make sure they are the right size, fit well, don't have any tears, stains or loose buttons .

#5 - Photographers are not mind readers and while we do our best to photograph your wedding, if there are specific poses, or particular family members you want photographed, be sure to let us know ahead of time!

#6 - Use a professional makeup artist if possible. Have a
pre- consultation so they already knows what you want  If you decide to do your own makeup then visit the cosmetic counter and have the consultant try different colors to see what looks best on you .

#7 - Forget about the cameras and flashes around you, laugh, smile. You've hired the right photography,
she or he will capture all the shared looks, laughter and fun.

#8  - Have more fun than everyone else at the wedding. It will show in your photos. Be yourself and relax, be in the moment and focus on each other. Be playful and daring -  It is emotions
that make a fabulous wedding photo. Don't start thinking about how you appear and how the pictures are going to look. That is your photographer's job.

#9 - When planning the times for your ceremony and reception, take into consideration the time that your photographer needs
to take formal and family pictures between the end of the ceremony and beginning of the reception. Ask your photographer how much time is needed.
