Look Great in Your Wedding Photos


(Photo by Perry Knotts)

Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and cringed? The lighting shows those not so perfect spots on your skin, you’ve gained ten pounds and your hair is flying everywhere? That’s definitely not what you want to see when you look at your wedding photos! Thankfully, we have St. Augustine photographer Perry Knotts to give you tips on how to look like a perfect movie star in your wedding photos.

• If you’re going to take your photos outside, take them in the evening hours. Depending on the season the times could range from 6-8 p.m.
Perry Knotts says, “The natural glow from the setting sun will reflect off your skin giving you a beautiful glow.”

• Try to pose at an angle for the camera with your body diagonal to the camera or put your hands on your hips with elbows facing out slightly.
Perry Knotts says, “With photography being a flat medium this would allow some depth and make people look slim. If you face the camera directly you could end up looking wider than you really are.”
• Don’t wear heavy make-up.

Perry Knotts says, “Although make-up might improve your look from far away in the close-up pictures your make-up will be obvious and look caked on.”

• Wear a hairstyle with your hair pulled back around your face.
Perry Knotts says, “The main reason is because of wind. You don't have to worry so much about strands of hair flying across the brides face.”

• Schedule a large amount of time between the wedding and reception for photos.

Perry Knotts says, “Time can go by so quickly photographing the family, bridal party, etc. Sometimes there is no time left for photographs of the bride and groom alone.”

• Talk to your photographer.
Perry Knotts says, “Just be relaxed and let your photographer know in advance of anything you’re expecting photography wise.”

If you follow all these tips you will be able to display your wedding photos with pride. You can be that slim sexy bride you’ve always dreamed of being.
