Jamie Smith Photography is elite member of our Colorado Springs location. When we asked her for tips to make you look amazing for your wedding day, this is what she had to say:
You might feel lots of pressure to look your best on your wedding day. It is, in fact, the day where you’ll probably be photographed the most in one day. Here are just a few tips to help ensure you will look your best and treasure those wedding photos for years to come.
Hire a professional make-up artist
They really understand make-up for photography which is often very different than what you are used to putting on. It doesn’t have to be anything over-the-top. Just something to enhance your natural beauty and avoid you looking washed out in pictures.
Pay no attention to the camera
Put your focus on your significant other rather than the camera, unless directed otherwise. Interact like you would on a romantic date. Give soft whispers or share an inside joke. This will help bring out your natural expressions and help create timeless photographs for you to enjoy.
Don’t forget the engagement session
It allows you, as a couple, to be comfortable in front of the camera with your photographer and figure out how you work best together before the main event.
Get your rest!
I often hear about wedding couples who’ve stayed up way too late the night before, celebrating with their friends and family after their rehearsal dinner. While it’s important to enjoy the evening before your wedding, be mindful of the big day ahead. If you’re tired you will look tired. It’s important to be well rested so you can thoroughly enjoy the day while looking your best.
