Let’s be real!
A wedding shoot is incomplete without bridal portraits. Since brides put so much effort into getting ready for their wedding day from carrying lehenga to adjusting jhumka, it wouldn’t feel right if you don’t get at least 10 or maybe 100 pictures.
You may have found the best wedding photographer who has promised to give you the best pictures. But if you go for a bridal portrait clueless then the photoshoot might not go as you once planned. So, you have to do your own little research before stepping in front of a camera so that you can slay your photoshoot.
From figuring out the poses to bringing that confidence, you have to work a little. A photographer can only help you so much but it’s you who will have to step up the game and rock that bridal portrait of yours.
So, here are some of the best tips we can give you to have an outstanding bridal portrait.
1. Practice Poses in Front of a Mirror
When it comes to figuring out the best pose, you got to try them all. But how? Well, you can start by posing in front of a mirror. For ideas, you can check out Pinterest or the Internet in general. Don’t be shy while trying out new poses because you will never know what pose works for you until you try it.
2. Take the Candid Route
One of the easiest ways to enhance your bridal portrait is by going candid. You don’t have to pose in front of the camera. You can just talk to the photographer or someone else while being in front of the camera or you can laugh about something. This way that photographer will be able to take your candid pictures.
3. Take advantage of Props
If you feel a little conscious of standing in front of the camera, you can take the help of the props. You can add props like sunglasses, an umbrella, or maybe a vintage car. Let your imagination run wild to get the most creative bridal portrait shots.
4. Flex your Lehenga
The best part about the bridal portrait is that you are already well dressed and wearing a fancy lehenga. This photoshoot is the best time to show it off. Twirl it around, have fun with it and try poses in which you can best show off the lehenga.
5. Confidence is the Key
No matter how good a pose is, how good the makeup is or how good the lighting is, your photo will never turn out good if you can’t carry it with pride. Be confident! It’s your photo shoot and a one-time event so don’t hold yourself back and charm your way out of the photoshoot.
