Engagements, boudoir, and bridal portrait shoots, are now deemed as important as the wedding ceremony itself. With today’s best wedding photographers turning the whole prenuptial stage from linear to creative, a lot of couples-to-be are now challenged to come up with a theme that would perfectly present their love story being immortalized through photographs. A great photographer will work with you to choose the perfect location for the shoot, the outfits to be worn, and even those candid moments and romantic looks and gestures—factors that would keep you all the more thinking about the way your photos would appear. However, before you proceed to get your photos snapped for your friends and family to see, we have some tips to help you and your beloved to be properly prepared for this momentous event.
Get your nails done. Whether you’re into nail polish or not, it is wise to trim your cuticles and even out your nails using a nail file. This would make your fingers look healthy as this also would make an impression, especially in showcasing your diamond ring in photos. Small details make a big difference!
Straighten your engagement ring. Before letting your photographer take a picture of your engagement ring on your finger, make sure that the ring is straightened out so it doesn’t look sloppy on your fingers when photographed. In fact, it is normal to have uneven webs between our digits which make ring sit a bit lopsided. To keep the ring in place during the photo sessions, place your hand on a flat surface, or try to squeeze your pinky against your ring finger. Also, clean your ring before the shoot. This can be done with simple glass cleaner or you can try to visit your jewelry store and ask for their preferred diamond cleaner.
