Take my word for it as a wedding officiant in Jacksonville, FL and amateur photographer, getting photos to actually come out the same as what the eye sees is hard. Really hard. So many things impact the final image from lighting to makeup, from time of day to the setting in which the wedding photo was taken. Below you will find a line item laundry list of getting better wedding photos and other pictures in general.
- Apply eyeshadow first before your foundation.
- Line the upper inner rim of your eye.
- Use tons of mascara – tip: blink down on wand to get it as close to eye as possible then wiggle the wand upward to coat the whole thing.
- Use a sheer foundation.
- Put foundation on ears.
- Skip the shimmer on the inner edges of eyelids (the V area closest to nose) and use a concealer there instead.
- Contour face with a blush brush.
- Use a slightly darker blush than normal so your cheekbones really pop.
- Fill in your brows.
- Moisten your lips with a shiny lip balm or lip gloss.
- Smile but not too big.
- Take pictures earlier or later in the day. Never at midday.
- Elevate your camera at a slightly tilted angle.
- Taking selfies? Let the tallest person hold the camera.
- Use a highlighting creme and apply a light thin line to bridge of nose and at the very tip of the nose.
