5 Ways to Rock your Wedding Day Photos
At Majestik Wedding Films, we’ve been lucky enough to capture over 250 weddings for inspiring couples from around the world. Here are some of the best tips we can give you, straight from our couples.
1. CHOOSE A COMFORTABLE DRESS. Of course you want to look beautiful on your wedding day, but you also want to feel your best. This can be a tricky balance, but if you do your research, the perfect dress may be out there for you that is both stunning and equally comfortable.
2. SCHEDULE ENOUGH TIME WITH YOUR CREATIVE TEAM. If your wedding day goes perfectly according to schedule, huge congratulations to you. Many wedding day itineraries can run behind, so be sure to schedule plenty of time with your creative team. In our experience, some the best photo and video content comes from when we can be alone with the couple after their ceremony. You will be anxious to get to cocktail hour, but be sure to set aside a good block of time for this – you will be happy you did!
3. HAVE FUN WITH IT! Joking around (if it’s in your personality) with your photographer, videographer, and groom will help you to loosen up, and to make everything look much more natural.
4. STAY COOL (SUMMER), STAY WARM (WINTER). Incase the sun is blazing hot, be sure to have a bridesmaid or planner on hand with some cool water and small towel for your groom. In the winter, try to have a blanket or wrap on hand for in between takes, and maybe some warm tea (or a hot toddy!).
5. GET TO KNOW YOUR WEDDING VENUE. Have a quick discussion with your creative team in advance about where on the property you will be taking photos and filming. “Winging it” sounds creative and fun (which it can be), but it’s still a good idea to have a plan (you can always choose to deviate from it).
6. FOCUS ON HIM and the day. If all of your attention is focused on how you look, it will show. Of course you need to keep your appearance in check (a small mirror on site can help with this), but if your focus is on your groom and the day at hand, it will show in your photos and video. Remember, the two of you are in this together. Having a “partners in crime” mindset will take some of the pressure off.
