• Please enjoy this advice for best wedding photos possible!
  • Wear colorful clothes, or least put the groom and family in colorful clothes. The background beach colors are DULL–white, silver, beige, blue, grey and white. You need contrast.
  • Choose colorful flowers too… white or ivory or cream flowers on a same color dress makes them disappear.  Flowers are accent and small… they dont’ “take away” from anything… use brightest colors you can stand.
  • Q-Tip heads: anyone with crew cuts or shaved heads? Ask them to tan their scalps in the last month before wedding… wear no hats, use sunscreen, for no strangely “glowing” heads in your pics.
  • Chin length or longer hair: its windy on the beach! Please wear hair pinned or braided and plastered thickly OUT of your face. Short hair may stand up in a cockatoo in wind, so use HEAVY hairspray then too! But wind on beach will ALWAYS blow long hair into your eyes, you squint, you toss your head, you swipe at it over and over… all those things ruin photos.
  • Wear the formal make-up, teeth whitening (groom too), and put on the big jewelry! Wear that fanciest necklace and earrings! They will look tiny and small in a portrait….trust me… BIG helps.
  • Choose a dress style that complements YOUR body type. The standard bridal gown of strapless, sleeveless, and sweetheart neckline, looks poorly on some body types… ask a seriously honest clerk or an honest friend for an opinion, before purchasing!
  • Self-conscious about your arms (or anything else) in photos?  Get clothing which doesn’t emphasize it. Already got a dress and have this “upper arms” issue? see these lace shrugs.
  • Alter dresses to fit very well and closely at the bust too–no gaps or pinching. The wearer should NEVER never tug on her own dress. Looks clumsy and childish.
  • Your pics will look natural due to the beach background and the poses we put you in. So for best wedding photos dress up a lot…this is a wedding!  And the contrast to the casual background is very cool and pretty!
  • But please remain physically comfortable. NO painful shoes or overheated layers!
  • Neckties need a tie tack or tie bar or clip…its windy on beach.
