Being a bride is a little bit like being famous for a day: You’re the center of attention! Being photographed all night long—can be daunting. But getting gorgeous wedding pictures that stand the test of time can be one less thing to worry about. Here are some tips to look your absolute best in each and every Instagrammable shot. I highly recommend to take most of your shots in black and white as they look timeless and hide multitude of sins. It’s paramount to hire a professional photographer that is good in taking posed as well as candid photos. Speaking of the photographer, it’s essential that you get to know yours before the big day. If he or she is a stranger, you’ll end up with stiff photos.
Before the big night, a little practice won’t hurt, either. Get into the habit of good posture and maybe ask your best friend to snap some portraits to put you at ease in front of the lens. But remember… The best images of the night are usually candid—the ones where you are looking authentically like you. That means that pretending your photographer isn’t there and just enjoying the moment may be the best strategy. Also, why not scatter some disposable cameras around the party and let your (drunken) guests go to town? You’ll end up with hilarious and candid pictures.
