Wedding photos sometimes it is not to be photogenic to be pretty on the pictures, but rather how to ask and smile adequately. Some Smile with Teeth without Opening the Mouth Too, For the smile appear as natural as possible, it is advisable not to open her mouth too. Moisten Your Teeth to Make Them Shine, Just before you shoot, move the tongue over your teeth to make them brighter. Use Bold Lipstick and Gloss, So that your smile is brighter, it is advisable to use a bold lipstick and gloss. Practice Your Best Smile, Practice every day you turn to the mirror and smile several times until you find one that you feel most comfortable.
Be Always On The Move, To give a natural appearance, photographers advise the bride to be constantly moving and changing pose. Do Not Forget, For your smile is always impeccable throughout the marriage and to the end of the night, do not forget to pack cosmetics on you for the evening.
People tend to pose self-consciously in front of camera-wielding gawkers—even if they are excited family members and friends.
Try using the words “husband” and “wife” while you’re posing for the camera—it “gets people to relax and smile naturally,” says local photographer Tim Correira. Ask your event planner to sneak you a few small appetizers and a glass of champagne before photo time. Boston magazine partnered with The New England Board of Higher Education to teach readers about the vast educational options in the area.
This is like online photography schools, where you can take a photography course for a fee. Recently, I had the opportunity to take wedding photos for a close friend’s daughter. All posts and pictures are copyrighted by Autumn Baldwin and blog content may not be reposted elsewhere. So – you love photography and have been asked by a friend to take pictures at their wedding. I remember spending more than a hundred hours working HARD to prepare for my first wedding. It is possible for an amateur to successfully photograph a wedding – but you have to be willing to work really, really hard.
Do you know what ISO refers to and what settings work best for various lighting conditions?
The third bit of advice is that, if you can’t use a tripod, try to brace yourself on whatever is handy. The fourth bit of advice is the industry-wide rule of thumb regarding shutter speeds: you generally shouldn’t shoot at a shutter speed “faster” than the zoom of your lens. This is the first in a series of articles that are designed to help amateurs as they prepare to photograph their first wedding. Thank you for taking the time to write and publish this article to help others take wonderful pictures! We are always looking for more interesting and insightful photography tips and techniques to share with our readers. Thousands of group photos must be taken each day around the world - but unfortunately many of them leave those taking them disappointed with the results. There is nothing that will make of people posing for a photograph turn upon you faster than you not being prepared. The place that you have your group stand is important to group shots for a number of reasons. Choose a position where your group will fit, where there is enough light for the shot and where there is no distractions in the background.
One of the best ways to avoid the problems of not everyone looking just right in a shot is to take multiple photos quickly. Similarly - shoot some frames off before everyone is ready - sometimes the organization of a group shot can be quite comical with people tell each other where to go and jostling for position.
Also mix up the framing of your shots a little if you have a zoom lens by taking some shots that are at a wide focal length and some that are more tightly framed. Try to get as close as you can to the group you’re photographing (without cutting some members of it out of course). If your group is a smaller one get right in close to them and take some head and shoulder shots. In most cases your group will pose itself pretty naturally (we’ve all done it before). For formal group photos put taller members in the group not only towards the back of the group but centered with shorter people on the edges of the group. Try not to make the group too 'deep’ (ie keep the distance between the front line of people and the back line as small as you can).
Tell everyone to raise their chins a little - they’ll thank you later when they see the shot without any double chins!
Also towards the start of events can be a good time as everyone is all together, they all look their best and if there is alcohol involved no one is too under the weather yet. I’ve been in a number of group photos where the photographer almost lost control of his subjects by not being quick enough but also by not communicating well with their group of subjects.
Another very useful line to use with group is - 'If you can see the camera it can see you’. If there are more photographers than just you then wait until others have finished their shots and then get the attention of the full group otherwise you’ll have everyone looking in different directions.
Of course you don’t want to be a dictator when posing your group or you could end up with lots of group shots of very angry people.
Large groups of people can be very difficult to photograph as even with staggering people and tiering to make the back people higher you can end up being a long way back to fit everyone in.
I find that using a tripod with group shots is very handy - not only because it eliminates camera shake but mainly because it lets me frame the shot exactly as I want it and then leave the camera to work on posing the group.


If you have a very large group and assistant can be very handy to get the group organized well.
An assistant is also incredibly handy if you are taking multiple group shots (like at a wedding when you’re photographing different configurations of a family). The worst that can happen is that you take a photo of bride with leftover food stuck between teeth.
Avoid sweets that contain sugar because it contributes to the multiplication of the bacteria that causes bad breath.
I especially love the makeup and DIY, fashion and on my blog I share my inspirations, projects and tutorials. While angled poses do tend to be more flattering, there are a few tricks for making a traditional portrait more appealing.
We reserve the right to remove impersonators or personal attacks, threats, profanity, or flat-out offensive comments.
Pro photographers spend years learning their craft, and a few tips off the internet aren’t going to give you comparable results.
Why is it that it seems like every professional photographer will recommend you don’t do it?
I have a significant amount of additional information on my website, and also link to other web sites that have information to help you out!
It is very useful for initiators of wedding photography to become a professional photographer. Unlike someone else, who is actually the one that couldn’t sound more like a jerk than he did, I googled help because I am new to using anything other than a point and click before I purchased my Nikon D3300. They happen everywhere from weddings, to camps, to parties, to sporting teams, to school etc.
For starters it can give the photo context - for example a shot of a sporting team on their playing field means more than a shot of them in front of a brick wall. Also avoid setting up a group shot directly in front of a window where the light from your flash might reflect back in a way that destroys your shot. I often switch my camera into continuous shooting mode when taking group shots and shoot in short bursts of shots. The closer you can get the more detail you’ll have in their faces - something that really lifts a shot a lot. One effective technique for this is to get your small group to all lean their heads in close to enable you to get in even closer. Try to choose a time that works with what is happening at the gathering that you’re at.
The way you get this varies from situation to situation but consider using a flash if the group is small enough and you are close enough for it to take effect - especially if the main source of light is coming from behind the group. It is important to keep talking to the group, let them know what you want them to do, motivate them to smile, tell them that they look great and communicate how much longer you’ll need them for. The best photographers know how to get people’s attention, communicate what they want but also keep people feeling relaxed and like they are having fun.
It also means I don’t have to be looking into the viewfinder or LCD at the time I shoot the picture and can be using my eyes to make sure everyone is looking right.
In these cases I often ask the couple to provide me with a family or friend member who has a running sheet of the different groups of people to be photographed.
Once you’ve found the perfect smile for wedding photos, practice for a few days so you can reproduce your wedding day. After faded with paper, add another layer of lipstick at the center of the lips to give them more volume. Don’t feel guilty about not socializing during cocktail hour: A good photographer will run damage control. Take someone with you so you can shoot practice photos and get an idea of what backgrounds and lighting will look like.
Whether you’re photographing just the bride and groom or the entire wedding party, a helper can be a lifesaver. When you’re not a professional photographer, your best chance of getting great photos is taking a lot of them.
If you’re going to be using auto for most of your photos, plan on doing some brightening after the fact. If you seem stressed, they couple will feel stressed, and you’ll be able to see that in the pictures.
And make sure the couple knows it is your first wedding so that they have low expectations.
If you are a student of photography you should immediately know the three I am referring and you should know how they interact. If you are indoors, what ISO setting will give you a good mixture of quality and light capture? Most of the time it is the only way I am able to get natural-lit shots of the wedding ceremony (due to the slow shutter speeds and dim lighting). For achieving a blurred-background effect (yes, shooting “wide open” – which means a low-numbered aperture – with a zoom lens is all that is needed)? He shares practical advice and information that he has learned while photographing weddings.
The other reason that choosing locations carefully is important is that it can have distractions in it.
I find that the first shot is often no good but that the one or two directly after it often give a group that looks a little less posed and more relaxed. Another way to get in closer is to move people out of a one line formation and stagger them but putting some people in front and behind.
I find it best to do a group shot when the group is already close together if possible and when there is a lull in proceedings.
When you give people a reason to pose for you you’ll find they are much more willing to take a few minutes to pose for you.


In doing this you can fit a lot more people in and still remain quite close to the group (you end up with a shot of lots of faces in focus and less bodies). Have fun and enjoy the process of getting your shots and you’ll find the group will too. So stop, smile into the camera, and remember the people who got you here in the first place.
Select a background for your photo that is pleasing to the eye, and has similar or darker lighting than the light on the subject (that’s you!). Walk around the entire area and look for stairs or benches for the couple to sit on, walls and doors for them to stand in front of or lean on, etc.
So I asked them if we could take some photos of the two of them the night before the wedding, outside the temple they’d be getting married in. Give your helper the must-have photo list and ask her to keep track of which ones you’ve taken and which ones you still need to do. Instead, turn on all the lights and open any windows and doors to get as much light in the room as possible. If the venue is too dark to take photos without using your flash, take them outside instead.
Talk to them, ask them about their plans, tell them how gorgeous they look, how happy you are for them, etc. I hired a professional for mine, and although he did a great job, I didn’t get the picture of me and my sisters I had hoped for because I forgot on the actual day. Maybe they don’t want to be blamed for encouraging you to take the photos if you make mistakes and ruin the wedding photos.
But this is why PRACTICE is so important: over the years I have found I can shoot with a slower shutter speed if I am using flash (to find out about my flash lighting techniques, visit my web site which I link to below).
It also gives an interesting perspective to your shots - especially if you have a nice wide focal length. Having a family member do this helps to make sure you don’t miss anyone out but also is good because the group is familiar with them and will generally respond well when they order them around.
I usually come home from a wedding which I’ve photographed with an incredibly sore jaw-line from all the smiling because I find the best way to get the couple and their family to relax and smile is to smile at them. If you’ll be shooting outside, find some spots to take photos that are up close to the church or building, and find others that are further away so the entire building can appear in the background. Ask her to call out who’s up next and help arrange each group so you can stay in one spot taking the photos. I’m a wedding photographer who realizes every professional started out by photographing a “first wedding” at some point. On my Nikon DSLR I will shoot indoors at ISO 400 all day and end up with beautiful, grain-free results.
First, since we were taking photos before the event, our timeline was relaxed and we didn’t have a huge audience. Move around and take photos from different angles, from above or below or to the side, focusing sometimes on the bride, sometimes on the groom, etc. While I will still recommend you give the couple a monetary gift so they can hire a professional photographer, if you are going to go ahead and do the photography yourself, I want to help you do the best job possible! You need the couple to be positioned so that the sun isn’t casting harsh shadows on their faces, so be sure scope out the location at the same time of day the wedding will be taking place. This went a long way toward making both me and the couple more relaxed, which meant we got better photos.
You can get a variety of completely different photos from the same pose (see photos below). I try to avoid moving up to ISO 800 or higher – but will do it if needed (there are tons of Photoshop plug-ins, free and paid, that can be used to lessen the grain). During wedding season, most outdoor ceremonies and receptions will have the sun high in the sky during prime photo time a€“ meaning if you take that photo in direct sunlight, you’re going to have squinty raccoon eyes with harsh shadows and bags under em.
She can help carry any gear, including a folding step-stool, which will help you get photos from different angles. You can even stop taking photos for a few minutes and let them talk to each other, then snap a few candids. Take lots of practice photos in different spots and with different camera settings so you can see before the actual event which things work and which things don’t.
And finally, the evening light meant we were able to get all sorts of photos that just wouldn’t have looked good in the full midday sun.
When they look at these pictures years from now, they won’t care that they were taken the night before their wedding instead of a few minutes after. Some of the photos will turn out better than others; you can delete the bad ones and keep the good ones. Putting your back to the sun for your selfie will at least take advantage of the backlight the sun can provide, giving your body a little glow. Instead, follow this tip used by models to define your beautiful jaw a€“ bring your head out and chin slightly down, kind of like a Turtle leaving its shell.
What we make sure to do in all of our photos is make sure the subject is standing naturally.
Place all your weight on one leg and pop the hip to provide shape to your body, move your arms so that they are not flat at your side a€“ creating space for your body, and place your body at a slight angle to the camera.
Many a great selfie has been lost simply by not taking another one just in case the first was out of focus or some other detail was off. Take as many silly photos as your heart desires a€“ noone ever said you have to show them to the rest of the world.
