5 ways to look natural in front of the camera on your wedding day…
Appearing in front of the cameras might be a scary idea to some. Whether you feel that you aren’t especially photogenic or you don’t know how to pose (like most people) or you are someone who hides every time a friend takes out their phone camera, you can be certain that on your wedding day you’ll be the spotlight. If you are feeling worried, here are 5 ways to help you look natural in front of the camera on your wedding day.
Find a trustworthy videographer
Being at ease with your videographer is one of the most significant wedding videography tips for appearing amazing on your special day. With this in mind, don’t simply seek a filmmaker whose content you love, but also someone who you have a good vibe about. You won’t be able to meet every wedding videographer you look for, so guide yourself through your friends, family or other couple’s suggestions and evaluations. Check out the videographers’ bios on their websites, too. Trust your videographer and you’ll end up with the most unique keepsake you’ve ever seen!
Get to know your videographer

Choose your hairstylist and makeup artists wisely
It’s only natural to want to look amazing on your wedding day, but crafting a style that works for videography is a different matter. So leave it to the pros! Research your hairstylist and makeup artist by looking at real brides’ photos or videos on their websites and social media. When you’ve picked your glam squad, be honest about your expectations and snap images after your trial – a selfie won’t be the same as your professional wedding portraits, but it’ll give you an idea. Your hairstyle and makeup will make you feel confident, and therefore you’ll look natural in front of the camera. Plus, professional artists know how to tailor your makeup to be perfect for natural or indoor light.
Handle your bouquet with care
How you carry your bouquet depends on its size and form, but generally you should hold it about at your waistline, or by your hips. You’ll be able to see everyone’s face without blocking theirs, plus your clothing will draw some attention! Remember to handle your flowers lightly, or you’ll look uncomfortable. Placing your bouquet at belly button level helps to relax the shoulders and shows off the arms at the ideal position.
Pretend the camera is not there
Be yourself and try to forget the camera is there. It’s easy to look natural in front of the camera while you’re walking, dancing, holding hands, or just moving about. Remember to relax and have fun! It’s your wedding day! Being in the spotlight should be a wonderful aspect of your event. The best part is that having fun makes the outcome even better. So, win-win, right?
We hope that these tips on how to look natural in front of the camera will help you feel more prepared and confident on the day of your marriage.
