It is a new year and with the new year comes resolutions. While we here at Ovation Images plan on continuing our resolution to take the best wedding photos in Pittsburgh, we know many brides have made a resolution to look their best on their wedding day, and with tips from Ovation Images, it is easy!

  • Eating well should be at the top of your to do list. You want to look and feel your best for your wedding and eating well is the best place to start!
  • Don’t tan or apply any tanning lotion within two weeks of your wedding day. If you burn or overdo accidentally, we have no way to fix that in your pictures. Also, most gowns will show strap lines and other lines from tanning. Two weeks allows time for those lines to fade.
  • Don’t use any glitter. It reflects light in distracting sparkles that are impossible to tell from tiny beads of shiny sweat. Glitter sparkles just have to be removed from your photographs, often at additional cost.

To get breathtaking wedding photography like this you really need to get to know your wedding photographer. Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers, offers some tips to help!

  • Check with your photographer about whether other wedding vendors are allowed to take and display pictures of your wedding. Many photographers do not allow any other paid professionals, such as your DJ, to take pictures at your wedding. Just asking this question can avoid a conflict later.
  • When you are choosing your photographer, ask each of them how they feel about your family and guests taking pictures at your wedding. Their reaction to this question can tell you a lot about whether they will be flexible and fun on your wedding day.

Here are a few quick tips on wedding day make up from Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers. Follow these and you will be picture perfect for your big day wedding photos!!
  • Have your makeup applied (and your hair done) as a test sometime in the month before your wedding. This gives you a chance to guide your makeup artist and hair stylist without any time pressure so they know exactly what you want before you show up on your wedding day. This dry run test will often save time, anxiety and confusion!
  • Schedule your hair and makeup as late in the day as possible. It’s a long day and your hair and makeup have to go a long way. If you have your hair done early in the morning, it is likely that it will not stay the way you would wish for the whole day.
  • Don’t use any glitter. It reflects light in distracting sparkles that are impossible to tell from tiny beads of shiny sweat. Glitter sparkles just have to be removed from your photographs, often at additional cost.

Ovation Images Wedding Tip #40:

On the big day, let it all go. Planning is over. What’s done is done. It will all be perfect, even if it isn’t perfect—get it? In the grand scheme of things people won’t remember that dinner started 15 minutes after it was scheduled. They will remember how much fun it all was and how wonderful you both looked together.

Being in front of a camera can make any bride or groom nervous. But no fear, Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer, has some tips on how to ease the nerves and be daring!

  • Posed vs. Candids. You want both. A good photographer gets 1 GREAT image out of 30 candids. The same photographer will get 1 great image out of 3 poses. Great images make great memories. Posing on your big day will add to the fun. Go for it!
  • Don’t look down too much. It’s hard to be in unfamiliar, formal clothes and not be self-conscious. But you have to make an effort to make eye contact and keep your head up. Everyone will appreciate your attention and you will appreciate the way you look in your pictures!

“And I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me headfirst, fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I dance
In a storm in my best dress, fearless”
