Your wedding day will be one of the happiest, most memorable days of your life—you’ll be a glowing, beautiful bride no matter what, but if you feel like you’re not photogenic, here are some tried and true ways of looking your best in photos.
An easy way of achieving a genuine-looking smile is by tucking your tongue behind your front teeth, thus raising your chin and opening your mouth a bit. It also helps to think about something that makes you happy, like a significant other, pet, or family member. Try practicing your smile in the mirror and see what looks best in photos. You can also take this opportunity to find your “good side.”
It’s all in the Angle
Most of this falls on your photographer, but you too can use angles to your advantage. For example, the classic red carpet pose involves angling yourself slightly away from the camera—that is, not facing the camera straight-on—leaning your weight on your back foot, and smiling. This pose is slimming and flattering for any bride.
If you don’t have the opportunity to whiten your teeth before the wedding, lipstick can make your teeth appear whiter in a pinch. Blue-reds and berry toned pinks sit across from orange and yellow on the color wheel, so the blue bases of these lipstick shades cancel out the yellow in your teeth. Another way of achieving an attractive smile is by running your tongue over your teeth just before the photo, which makes them look shiny and photo-ready!
