Wedding Day Tips: Photography

Posted On: May 25, 2018



  • Don’t Forget to Freshen Your Makeup

It can be easy to forget about staying matte, reapplying lipstick, checking your highlight, contour and making sure your cheeks are blushed when you are busy thanking and kissing everyone in the receiving line after the ceremony! Before you move on to take pictures before cocktail hour, take a few minutes to freshen up so you can look your best in those special shots!


  • Pick Your Best Angle

Taking pictures while standing straight towards the camera doesn’t make for the best shot. While most photographers will help place you for pictures it is good to understand what angle you look best in. Practicing before the big day means you won’t be over thinking it, standing at an angle while tilting your chin slightly is often the most flattering. Try looking in the mirror and take some selfies to find out how you feel most comfortable.


  • Focus on Posture

Of course, you want your posture to be perfect in all your photos, however it is especially important to remember while sitting. Be sure to sit up straight and cross your legs at the ankles.


  • Hold Your Bouquet Properly

Holding your bouquet right in front of you at about waist level with your arms right in front of you can make you look bigger in photos. Having your arms held out from your hips a bit will look much better. For a more relaxed picture, holding it loosely with one hand and the other hanging naturally by your side is another great option. Remember, small details can make a big difference!


  • Smile!

With all the excitement of the happiest day of your life you would be surprised how easy it is to forget to smile, especially if you are nervous about making sure everything is perfect. Just remember you look beautiful and your smile will be your best accessory.


  • Relax and Be Yourself

Thinking too much about how you are posing can translate into your photos. Just remember to relax, breathe, and be yourself, it will make for the most natural reflection of you and your relationship.

Here are a few tips to make sure everyone is prepared for an amazing evening.



  1. Coordinate with Friends:

Before booking your transportation make sure you know exactly who will be attending as well as when and where everyone needs to be picked up. By booking earlier on you’ll have a larger selection of the best vehicles, as well as time to make minor adjustments if needed with no problems at all. Make sure all parties understand contract statements as well as deposits, and pricing. Going over these details early on prevents confusion and miscommunication.

 

  1. Communicate your Rules:

A reliable transportation company will have their own set of rules and guidelines that will be reflected in their contracts or within their policies. These procedures are put in place to protect our clients as well as our company and its employees. When booking with All Star Limo, we take the time to understand your rules and wishes, to ensure a safe and fun night.

 

  1. Have smartphones prepped:

Make sure you have playlists ready and picture locations set up in advance. Coordinate with friends where to meet for pictures pre-prom. Having an AUX cord and a charger on hand will make sure the party lasts, and you will be able to communicate with your friends and parents throughout the night.

 

  1. Relax and enjoy your night:

When booking your transportation services with All Star Limousine you can be assured you’re in good hands.

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day Ideas for 2018

Mother’s Day has been a tradition since the late 1800’s. It is a time to celebrate and honor the women in our lives that have shaped us into who we are today, whether it be a Mother, Grandma, Aunt or any special someone, we have put together a few ways to show recognition for all they do throughout the year.

Make it a Family Affair:

Show homage to all the mothers in your family by planning a group wine tour, spa day, brunch or dinner where they can enjoy each other’s company. If you really want to feel pampered booking a party bus or limo for transportation is a nice idea so everyone can relax and travel together in style, without having to lift a finger!

Hair, Nails, Makeup:

Take her out for a makeover! Going for a new hair style or up do and makeup is a great way to make Mom feel special. Getting a manicure and pedicure before going out to lunch or dinner makes for a fun-filled day together.

Shopping:

Can’t figure out what to get her? Plan a trip to the mall together and let her pick out exactly what she wants! Sometimes we don’t know how to pick the perfect gift for the person who means so much to us, it may feel like you want to give them the world. It just seems like a tangible gift would not suffice for someone so special. I find making memories is one of the best gifts to give in situations like this. Making a day dedicated to Mom, with something like, taking her out to the mall and making her a home cooked meal can be so simple, yet one of the greatest memories both of you will look back on.

 

Mother’s Day is Sunday May 13th; however you decide to celebrate, we hope you can take this opportunity to spend some time with the women who matter most in your life and truly show them your appreciation.
