How to Get Perfect Bridal Portraits

Posted on June 20, 2017 by New Jersey Bride

Every girl wants dreamy Bridal Portraits!

Here are some tips for getting those effortless images that you love on your big day.

1.) Hire a photographer whose style you love! Don’t expect to get the images you’re swooning over from a photographer that you hire based on price. Simply showing a photog the types of pictures you are going for, doesn’t mean they will be able to replicate them.   2.) While posing is necessary to capture specific shots, I love natural genuine images, no posing needed. Posed portraits often lead to forced, uncomfortable images. A good photographer will know how to place you in the best positions and what angles to shoot at to capture natural pictures. 3.) Keep moving! Walking, dancing, laughing, playing with your hair, look up, look down and all around! Constant movements will keep you fluid and create more natural images. Pick up your gown, twirl and sway! Keeping your bridal party on hand to make you smile laugh and keep you loose is also a good idea! Oh, and a little champagne never hurt either.
