How to get the best photos on your wedding day


To many brides and grooms, their wedding is a first-time experience, therefore they will probably not have thought of a lot of things that you could do on the day to make their wedding photos even nicer.

For couples planning on getting married, here are a few tips for getting the best photos from your wedding photographer on your big day:

  • Think about what you’re wearing while you are having your make-up and hair done. You tend to look more elegant when you are in a bathrobe or pretty dress than in a tracksuit bottom, for instance!


  • Where you choose to get ready is also very important. A dark, cluttered place doesn’t tend to look good photographically.


  • Relax and enjoy with your friends and family when you are getting ready. A couple of drinks can help. I know it can be hectic and a serious matter, but your lovely smile helps produce lovely photos.


  • Give plenty of time for your wedding photographer to take your photos before the reception. You may want to mingle with your family and friends but for the sake of your lovely album, the photographer needs sufficient time to take sufficient shots so you have plenty to choose from after the event.


  • You are the star on the day! Don’t be shy to do a pose that you’ve never done before. Some poses may look a little corny, but they very often look great as photos.


  • Don’t keep looking down when you walk down the aisle.


  • Be as specific as you can with your photographer, so you work efficiently together.


  • Delegate one of your more confident friends to get people to gather together for group shots.


  • Look at your partner when you do your first dance.


  • Don’t let the rain spoil your wonderful wedding day!
