An engagement photo session is a sweet way to introduce the path to your wedding. Aris Affairs Photography offers tips to help soon-to-be-brides be camera-ready and perfectly comfortable for your engagement photo shoot in Prescott.
Your shoulders: As you are posing for a still photograph, deliberately lower your shoulders slightly. When people are not relaxed they are often unaware that they’ve unconsciously raised their shoulders. Dropping your shoulders slightly will result in you looking much more relaxed.
Position your head: By practicing in a mirror at home beforehand, notice which position of your head brings out your best features and minimizes those areas that are not your favorite. Is your down-cast head reminiscent of Princess Diana or did it just give birth to a double-chin? Most of us do have a ‘best side’. Find your best side and turn that side slightly toward the camera.
Arch your back: Even a slight slouch can add years to your look. Slouching, whether in pictures or real life, does nothing for our appearance, so you do not want to be caught slouching for your engagement shoot. To avoid slouching, strive to arch your back slightly throughout the session. Not only will it be age-reducing but you’ll appear tall, poised and confident.
Your arms: First of all, relax. When people are nervous, we tend to keep our arms very close to our body and that does not generally translate well in a picture. Practice holding your arms away from your body by at least six inches.
Your smile: Above all, practice a natural smile or a relaxed laugh. It might feel like a completely contrived pose, but on camera there’s nothing better than a relaxed, smiling expression.
Remember to have fun!!
