How to pose for your wedding photographs: Ready to pose!

Here we have expert advice from the best wedding photographersNikhi, Tarun, Manish, Mahima, Jude and Our Wedding Chapter, who says that “Photographs, along with videos and memories of your wedding that you will have for life time”. Over time, there are certain memories that are forgotten and to look back at these memories is a very special feeling. Which is why we always recommend that you choose to opt for a professional photograhper, to ensure that these images are captured to the best quality.

The best angle

Nikhil says we all have a “good side”, one which really does us justice. If you do not know your angle yet don´t worry, just master the art or creating the perfect selfie and was you have that you will have mastered your favourite angle. One tip is do not pose much or pout, as I said earlier natural is much more better than fake.

The face

Our Wedding Chapter says a good trick to do well in the photos is lift your chin a little, not too much but enough so that your neck appears longer and your posture is more poised. Stretch your neck and tilt your head down, it is always important to act relaxed even if you´re not, you want these photos to look as perfect as possible.

One important factor is to not squint! Squinting ruins all pictures, get contact lenses if need be.

Relax

Tarun and Jude says first and formost, relax in front of the camera! The worst mistake of all is to be tense, lose yourself in the moment, enjoy and take time to embrace the moment. To achieve this, confidence is very important therefore you need a very good photographer that you feel very comfortable around. A good time to practise your poses would be at your prewedding shoot, so you can really figure out what you like and dislike.

Natural makeup

Mahima believe that another aspect to consider when posing in front of a camera is that you carefully select the makeup that you will be wearing. The worst thing that could happen is to wear makeup which doesnt do you any justice. It is very important to use matte makeup to eliminate glare powders which are very bad in the photos. Let yourselves be carried away by the professional care of makeup artist like Ambika Pilai, Chandni Singh and Sakshi Malik and know what the best products are and how to use them. To highlight white teeth apostate by lipsticks in shades of pink, red or peach and above all give a touch of gloss to give a juicier and fuller look.

The smile

Manish states that when you go to your photograhper your smile will automatically radiant as you will be so happy and excited to take photos during the run up of your wedding day. One thing you must remember is that, always be real. A fake smile can be seen from miles away and it never looks as good as the real deal, so make sure that you relax and embrace the moment.

These are just a few tricks to get perfect photos to remember your special day by. Logically you cannot think of all these tips throughout the wedding in which you are taking pictures constantly, but if the pre-wedding session and photos that will make sure between the ceremony and the banquet.

Do them or not these tricks in practice, the best advice is to be carried away by the moment and enjoy every moment to its maximum potential. So just relax, make sure you pick the best photographer that suits your event, and soak up the beauty of this very special day.
