Suggestions for bridal photos

Mar 27, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can capture your Prescott wedding photos and turn your special day into beautiful memories.Your ideal Prescott wedding photo shoot will no doubt begin with photos of you, the beautiful bride. To help every bride look her very best on a day that’s often full of overflowing energy and bustling activities, Aris Affairs Photography offers these professional tips for beautiful photos.

Picture Scenes and Poses
Well before your wedding day, begin to prepare for your bridal photo shoot with a list of the settings and poses you’d like captured. Here are some classic bridal settings and poses to consider:

  • Putting your gown on
  • Gazing into a mirror
  • Having your hair and makeup done
  • Slipping on your garter
  • Adjusting your veil
  • Focusing on your special accessories like a treasured family heirloom, or vintage jewelry piece
  • Looking at a photo of your fiance
  • Rehearse the shoot

Rehearse, especially if you’re photo-shy. Use a mirror to help you practice the poses you have in mind. Practice your glances, your gazes, your smile and your posture. Practice sitting, posing your hands and tilting your head. Ask your maid of honor or mom to help you by offering their gentle opinions and insight. Find your best side and your best angles so that you can position yourself to look your best in every picture.

In front of the camera

Face and Neck – Using a mirror, practice positions and angles to discover the poses you like best. Posing with your face and neck slightly lifted is often flattering.

Shoot from Above – Few people look good in photos shot from below. Looking up to a camera is almost always better than looking down to one.

Avoid Head-On Poses – Turning your head slightly to one side as well as your body to create those model- thin angles will be far more flattering than a head-on pose. It’s your wedding, not a passport picture.

Relax
Relaxation is the absolute key to beautiful wedding photos. The most treasured photos are always of clients who are relaxed and comfortable. If you’re offering champagne at your wedding it might be helpful to have a sip…but to ensure beautiful photos, do not indulge.

Aris Affairs Photography hopes these tips for your Prescott bridal shoot inspire and prepare you to take beautiful, timeless bridal photos that you and your new husband can enjoy forever. If you’re planning your wedding, call Aris Affairs Photography today at 928-642-4049.
