Be Mindful of the Weather

Weather can work to your advantage, or it can be your worst nightmare. When taking wedding photos, make sure you’re aware of the weather. If you’re getting married in the winter, for example, a few flurries can make your photos look like holiday cards, but a full-blown storm may prove a bit much. Talk with your wedding venue about alternate locations for taking pictures if the weather is bad. If you are having a spring, summer, or early fall wedding, it might be a smart idea to pick a scenic outdoor location to take some pictures close to the venue.

Choose the Appropriate Makeup

The type of makeup you choose to wear to your wedding can have a positive, or negative impact on the camera. Some colors, shades, and makeup techniques look great on film while others – well, not so much. Taking the minimalist approach with very little caked foundation, a touch of lipstick, and natural colors look great on camera. Another trend is highlighting your favorite features, like your eyes or lips. This can help you stand out without being over the top.
