Scheduling your bridal photo session is one of the most exciting times of your wedding day planning and preparation. Here are some great tips to have beautiful bridal portraits.
1. Choose a perfect location.
We have several unique locations in Dallas area for your bridal session what we will suggest but if you have location what has some special meaning to you, we are open to that as well. Most of our bridal sessions are done outdoor, so you need to have a weather season on mind as well. One of the most beautiful areas are Dallas Arboretum, Las Colinas Canals, downtown Dallas, The Harbor in Rockwall, or Old Red Courthouse.
2. Do a lot of hair and make-up trial.
Your bridal shoot is the real thing so make sure that you look your best. Practice different looks with your hair and make-up artist and see what fits you : hair-up or down, what shades of make-up to wear. Just do not overdo, let your happiness and natural beauty glow.
3. Be a pro in posing.
Weeks before the bridal shoot try practicing some poses in front of a whole-size mirror. Practice your half smile, full smile, dreamy looks. Of course we will have some great advices for you for posing, but if you know yourself well, you will be much more comfortable and it will shows in your photos.
4. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and have a good rest the night before.
This will give that special glow in your skin and eyes for that perfect bridal shoot.
