Your wedding day will be one of the most special experiences of your entire life, so looking good is very important for the picture that will be taken throughout the course of the day. Nearly every aspect of your wedding day will be captured on film, so not looking good at any point can really put a damper on things in a big hurry. Fortunately, nearly everything about your wedding attire is specifically designed to enhance your natural beauty and highlight the best parts of your appearance. Most brides also hire a hair and makeup specialist to further highlight their best features, and the result is almost always a physical appearance that is the best you’ll ever look in your entire life.
However, a fancy dress and a little bit of professionally done makeup alone won’t make your wedding photos completely unforgettable. In order to make them as fantastic as possible, you’ll need to think outside the box and use some creativity to really make your photos special. Fortunately, there is no shortage of items to improve your wedding appearance on the market these days, and most of them are really fun and inexpensive to purchase. From photo props like wedding sparklers to creating entire themes, here are a few of my favorite items to make you look as beautiful as possible on your wedding day.
A good wedding photographer will know a whole lot of tricks to improve the way you look in your wedding photos. One of the most commonly used techniques for this approach is to choreograph the photos to create a fun and memorable scene. There are a lot of different ways to pull this off, but usually it will require the photographer to do some editing after the picture is taken. This can be something as simple as putting a halo over the bride head or something as complex as changing the entire background to look like a pirate ship with the groom swooping in to save the bride from his pirate groomsmen. However you choose to choreograph your scene, the result is usually a fun and memorable photo that will be among your favorites.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to look better in your wedding photos is to incorporate the use of wedding props. The best part about using this technique is that it is incredibly inexpensive and there are literally thousands of different possibilities. Some of the most popular choices include funny hats and oversized sunglasses for pictures during the wedding reception. While the couple is making their exit at the end of the night, guests will often light wedding sparklers as they make their way to the limousine. Sparklers are a great prop for wedding photos because they show up very well during the evening when most receptions happen. Though most sparklers for weddings burn bright enough to be captured in photos, if you are having a daytime wedding you will want to use very large wedding sparklers so they still show up well in your photos because they are much better in low light situations.
Taking themed photos are one of the most drastic ways to change or improve your appearance in your wedding photos, and it can also be the most fun. Essentially taking the best parts of choreographed photos and using wedding props, themed photos take things one step further and really bring your pictures to a whole new dimension. Many couples do things that are really drastic like dressing up in old western style clothing and holding era-appropriate props or dressing up like astronauts in front of a lunar-themed backdrop. Whatever personal preference you happen to have, there is no way to more drastically improve your appearance in a wedding photo than to craft an amazing theme in which everyone participates.
