Since wedding photos are one of the most important aspects of your wedding, we’d like to share a few suggestions on making your photo shoot run smoothly. It’s important that you are prepared for your photo shoot. These wedding day photo shoot suggestions should help.
Have a plan
First and foremost, you need to have a plan for your photo shoot. Make sure both you and your photographer know exactly what types of photos you are expecting. Make sure you choose your photo locations ahead of time. If you begin without a plan, your photo shoot will take longer and your photos won’t turn out as nice.
Have a back-up plan
Having a plan is important but keep in mind that things don’t always go as planned. Make sure you are prepared for bad weather. Even make a plan for a condensed photo shoot if you are running behind schedule. Brides never have as much time as they expect.
Has there ever been a time when your hair and makeup have been perfect in every way; then when you take a photo, it doesn’t look good at all? Some hair styles just don’t look good in photos. Your makeup doesn’t always look the same in the mirror and in a photograph.
Here is how you can make sure you will look photogenic on your wedding day. Before the wedding day, do your hair and makeup as if you were getting ready to be married; then take a photo and see how you look in the photo. If you don’t like the turnout, try something different.
Assign a traveling stylist

Choose a friend (probably a bridesmaid) that is talented with hair and makeup. Keep her with you throughout the day to keep you looking nice.
