At Portrait Innovations, we like to think of a bridal portrait session as a dress rehearsal for one of the most important events in your life: your wedding day! It’s also a perfect opportunity to capture everything from your expertly styled hair to your elegant dress without the stress of the big event.
Below are just a few tips on looking your best for your bridal portrait session:
Perfect posture makes for perfect portraits.
Posture is key to beautiful bridal portraits—especially if you’re wearing a strapless gown. Before your session, practice keeping your shoulders back and your chin up. This will create a slimming effect and accent the elegance of your dress.
Wear more makeup.
Even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup on a day-to-day basis, you may want to consider wearing a bit more for your portrait session. Going au natural will make you look washed out in pictures. Our photographers recommend visiting a professional makeup artist who can help you pick a color palette that will match your skin tone and look great in portraits.
Practice your poses.
You might feel silly practicing poses for your bridal portrait session in the mirror, but you’ll be glad that you did! We recommend trying on your dress at home before the session, just to make sure that you’re comfortable in the gown and have a few favorite poses ready to go. Our expert photographers can also help you choose the most flattering angles and positions for your bridal portraits.
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event—let our portrait photographers help you capture this special moment! To reserve your session, use our online appointment scheduler.
