Making sure you are happy in your wedding photos is crucial for every bride; after all most couples have a bride and groom smiling their hearts out. There will be a lot of fun things to be remembered on your big day – the flowers, the music, the cake but nothing can last forever other than your photos.

Here are the only secret hacks to you need to know to help ensure that you get the best possible outcome from one of the biggest days of your life.

Be Prepared

First and foremost, prepare yourself mentally and physically for this day. Before your wedding date, ensure that you do your research. Start by looking at other newlyweds’ photos, browsing websites and blogs. Look at their portfolios and get a sense of their style and see how the couples depict their emotions through the photos.

Include Loved Ones

The couple won’t be the only ones looking at the wedding photos and cherishing them in the future; your friends and relatives would want to look at them too! If your parents, grandparents or children are present at the hotel or wherever you’re staying at, include them in the shots. You could incorporate them by letting a bridesmaid or your maid of honour put on your jewellery or zip up your wedding.

Meet with the Photographer

We all have certain images and poses in our heads that we want to portray that we want to do for our own wedding day. After all, you’ll want to feel comfortable that the wedding photographer understands your vision and the kind of photos that you want taken on your wedding day.  

Work with the Weather

If there was any memorable weather on the wedding day (rain, cold, etc.), don’t stress out about —appreciate it! You can never control what the weather will be like, so it’s always good to have a plan B for whatever the clouds may bring. (An awning, overhang or clear umbrellas are helpful ways to keep the bridal party dry while still capturing the rain.)

Make a list, check it twice!

If you have particular group shots or couple shots in mind, now’s the perfect time to come up with a shot list. Stick to a few important shots, and ask your maid of honour or another member of the entourage to help orchestrate them on the day of. Include whether you want shots coloured or in black and white, and don’t forget to mention any particular décor items you want to be captured.
