Wedding Photography Tips for Brides, Part 2

Be sure to get a good night's sleep the night before so you look bright and well rested. That may seem like a silly tip but it bears repeating -- photographs capture the day and if you spend your day exhausted because you were up all night finishing the last 10 hand-crafted centerpieces, it will show. Get some rest! You've got a big day ahead of you.

Drink lots of water. You are going to be on your feet and on the move most of the day. You may get dehydrated so make sure in the days proceeding the ceremony you get lots of water (and if possible, lots of food, too!)

Spend some time talking to your photographer about how you envision the day. If your photographer is serious about your wedding and capturing your photographs -- not the one his magazine editor wants -- they will want to spend a few hours (maybe over multiple meetings) talking about your style, plans, itinerary and venue. Communicating with your photographer (and finding one who listens) is one of the most critical pre-event steps you can make to ensure that your photographs are what you hope them to be.

Most important is that if you are comfortable, happy, and enjoying the wedding -- it will reflect in your photos.
