I Got Married For The Pictures…

blod wedding

Ok… maybe that isn’t entirely true, but it was at the top of my wedding “must-have’s”! Having amazing photos were almost as important as marrying my husband on our wedding day! Jon jokes that we got married just for the photos! He’ll never know the truth… 😉

We all have angles and photos that we don’t like of ourselves, but I want to share a few tips of getting a lot of photos that you do like!

  1. Do a trial with your hair and makeup artist. And let her know of anything you don’t like and want changed! A huge mistake is pretending you like it in order to save someones feelings. They want you to be happy on your special day!
  2. Get a spray tan if you have swimsuit lines! I cringe when I see brides with a strapless dress and very noticeable tan lines.
  3. Get clip in hair extensions. Game changer.
  4. Have fun and be over-enthusiastic in the photos. I love shots when people are laughing and looking like they are caught in the moment.
  5. Be confident! It will show. If you aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, just remember that you are only doing this once…. and these photos are forever! (I know, easier said than done, but trust me, let loose and soak up the attention of the photographer)
  6. Keep a smile on your face even when you don’t think the photographer is looking. You never know when they will grab a candid shot!
  7. Have someone to check your hair and makeup throughout the day. I regret not assigning someone to look out for my hair. It was windy that day and my hair started to look a little too tousled!

But most importantly-have fun and enjoy YOUR day, the pictures will reflect that! <3

      Its from Moores/Mens Wearhouse depending on if you’re in the States or Canada. Moores is the Canadian version of Mens Wearhouse. 🙂

    Your photos are absolutely stunning! Definitly a must have on our list too! I am wondering what your dress colour was? Did your hubby match his shirt to your dress? We’re having that discussion now haha! Thanks in advance!

      Aww thank you! You’re so sweet! My dress was off white and I don’t think he matched it. Lol. My dress was still quite white, so it was ok. But if you are having a champagne colored dress or something like that, it might be more noticeable!
