Mandy’s Quick Tips | Natural-Looking Photos


POSTED IN: For My Brides

Here’s a little photography secret… some of the most natural looking photos aren’t “natural” at all. In fact, some of the most natural-looking shots I’m sure you’ve seen and just loved aren’t at all candid. Sure, your photographer can just shoot your day exactly as it unfolds, but if you want photos like all those amazing images you’ve been pinning for months on Pinterest, it will take a little more staging. For example, when getting into your dress, the most important thing is great light! If your getting ready spot is small, cluttered, and/or dark, you may wish to stage a few of these shots in a more photo-friendly location after you’re actually already dressed.
