Since most people take pre-wedding photoshoots only once in their lives, you would want the results to be perfect.
Aside from choosing a professional photographer with substantial experience to handle your pre-wedding photoshoot in Singapore, it’s important, on your end, to do your own pre-photoshoot prep to make sure you look your best.
After all, a stressed couple is an unhappy couple and you would want to capture only romantic times when you start your pre-wedding photoshoot.
We have listed 6 smart preparatory measures you can take to ensure that you look your best in your pictures. Read on to view them!
1. Choose Matte Makeup
While glass skin might be the in-thing in several parts of Asia, you wouldn’t want to look greasy in your pictures, especially if you opt for an outdoor pre-wedding photoshoot (Singapore’s weather can be extremely temperamental at times). You would want to avoid looking like a sticky mess.
With that in mind, try to use matte makeup instead.
Avoid applying too much glittery eyeshadow, highlighters and face oil before your pre-wedding photoshoot. Also, refrain from using cream blushers and compact powder as they could look cakey on camera. Use an oil-control primer as well as a mattifying loose powder to lock all your makeup in. Finish with a mattifying spray and you are good to go.
If you are going to engage a professional makeup artist to do your makeup that day, inform her that you want to go matte.
2. Dress in Colours that Complement Your Skin Tone
Some people look great in certain colours, whereas others may not look the same.
Any model or designer would tell you that donning colours that clash with your skin tone is a big no-no. It’s important to be aware of your skin tone as well as what colours flatter and clash with your skin.
If you have warm skin tones, choose warmer colours like red, peach, amber and gold as well as “warmer” versions of cool colours like olive and moss.
On the other hand, if you have cool skin, opt for shades like rose, lavender and blue.
Then again, the rules aren’t set in stone. As long as you feel confident in the way you look, you will kill it in your pre-wedding photoshoot!
3. Bring along a couple of outfits
You wouldn’t want all your pictures to look the same, so feel free to jazz them up by bringing along a couple of different outfits.
Feel free to switch outfits when moving from location to location.
Tip: make your pre-wedding photoshoot even livelier by incorporating some props at various locations!
4. Communicate with Your Photographer
Communication is the foundation of all successful relationships and partnerships. Similarly, in order for you to have an excellent pre-wedding photoshoot with all the shots you want, it is important that you articulate this to your photographer.
Your photographer should have enough expert knowledge to provide some timely advice based on the types of shots you want to take. Just make sure you communicate your intentions clearly and comprehensively for a win-win pre-wedding photoshoot.
5. Plan Ahead
“Failing to plan is planning to fail.” – Alan Lakein
What types of poses do you want to have?
If you are going to have an outdoor pre-wedding photoshoot, do you have a wet weather plan?
Do you have a photoshoot theme?
Before the pre-wedding photoshoot commences, having backup plans and a rough idea of what types of pictures you want is a great way to avoid wasting time. Having a clear direction can help you capture stellar pictures
6. Calm Your Nerves Before the Shoot
Whether you are someone who wears your heart on your sleeve or not, you would want to look relaxed and blissful in your pictures.
Even if it is your first time having a photoshoot, try to be calm and relaxed. You wouldn’t want to look stressed out in your wedding pictures!
