Even if you prefer a more natural look, investing in a hair stylist and
professional make up artist can take your wedding portraits from ordinary
to extraordinary. Though we do retouch portraits, excessive work will cost
extra. You will be amazed with the results that you can get with the aid of professional beauty consultants. AND don't forget your nails! You want a dynamite hands & rings photo.
If you are a smoker or coffee lover, have your teeth brightened before your big day as well - either professionally or with some bleaching strips. These tips can save you a lot of money in the long run, and make you feel extra
special on your wedding day.
You want to look like yourself, so unless you tan as part of your regular beauty
routine, don’t try to look too bronzed on your big day. Instead, keep your skin
looking healthy and radiant by staying well hydrated and using a good
moisturizer on your face and body every day after showering. Once your big
day arrives, lotion with a subtle shimmer (no glitter)will photograph nicely and help
balance your skin tone.
As the wedding date nears, you will be tempted to pull all-nighters, preparing
centerpieces, making travel arrangements, making favors and putting the finishing touches on your big day. Whatever you do, be sure to get plenty of rest during this time. Avoid excessive drinking (no binging bachelorettes) and get eight hours of sleep the entire week before your wedding day, for a rested, radiant look that is most suiting a happy bride.
Stress can not only ruin your big day, but it can also have a negative effect on
your wedding day portraits as well. If you are relaxed and happy, it will make
everyone around you happy too. If you are cranky, stressed and emotional,
everyone in the wedding party is going to reflect your emotional state. Try to
keep a positive attitude throughout your day so those smiles in your portraits
won’t look like cringes.
