We here at Nitin Arora Photography, love Bridal Portrait as we get to meet the lovely clients when they see themselves as the bride for the very first time. And we understand how significant these moments are for a bride as she herself plans everything, from her jewelry to her wedding lehenga, but this is the time when she sees it all come together. These moments are magical for the bride and also for us as a bride's excitement and delight are very contagious.
Hence if you are a bride-to-be too, we definitely recommend you to have a Bridal Portrait. These shoots aren't just for photos that you display at the big screen on the wedding reception, but they are much more than that as they remain with you for a long time so that you can cherish these moments forever.
But we as wedding photographers, are often faced with the question, "how can we prepare for the bridal photoshoot?". So we are here to tell you about 7 things that can help you get the bridal portrait of your dreams.
1. Pick The Right Outfit
We all know that a Bridal Portrait revolves around the bride's outfit. So you have to select the best dress. And not just in terms of look as you also have to make sure that the dress that you choose also fits you well. It is very important for you to be comfortable at the time of your Bridal Portrait.
2. Be Confident
We have to admit that this is not one of the most uncommon pieces of advice, but you have to understand that there is nothing to worry about. All you have to do is remember that this is one of the most special days of your life and more especially that you look amazing! There is certainly no reason for you to be nervous or conscious in front of the camera.
3. Let Your Hair Down
You must have heard the saying, "Go with the flow" and this is what we will advise you to follow. Some of the best memories in our lives are made by going with the flow. Remember this is one of the most anticipated moments of your life so enjoy yourself and have a great time as this can get you some really pretty candid bridal portrait shots that you can later flaunt on Instagram.
4. Ask Your Friends and Family To Be By Your Side
This advice really helps if you are still nervous to face the cameras. Your friends and family can light up your bridal portrait just the way they light up every other aspect of your life. This will surely help you overcome your camera consciousness.
5. Get Your Rest
This is something that you should not take for granted. Let us assure you by telling you that the concept of "beauty sleep" is real. So, you have to be well-rested for your Bridal Portrait as those high-end professional cameras can really capture the stress that you might be carrying due to the wedding.
6. Not To Forget About The Accessories
The Accessories in a bridal portrait are like the icing on the cake and just like your wedding dress, you also have to plan what jewellery you'll be wearing at the time of your bridal portrait.
7. Makeup and Hair
The bridal portraits are a great way for you to get a glimpse of how you'll look at your wedding. So for this shoot, we suggest you hire the same person that you have hired for the wedding for your makeup and hair.
