Follow these tips and you will have much better photography and video on your wedding day:

1.) Avoid stress by being ready to go at the ceremony location well in advance of the ceremony. Remember, the bride is usually sequestered for 30 minutes prior to the ceremony, so leave yourself plenty of time.

2.) Do most of your posed photos and video before the wedding. After the ceremony, the bride and groom will still need to do some group photos with family and bridal party, but it is helpful to get all the individual shots done beforehand.

3.) Use photo-friendly makeup that does not leave any shine on your face. Some brides recently have used makeup with glitter in it. This has a glossy base and causes unwanted shine on foreheads and cheekbones.

4.) Be aware that some traditional wedding veils will conceal your face on the video. Consider a smaller veil that goes behind the shoulders. This goes for hair as well. Hair pulled back from the face usually makes a much better video shot.

5.) The bride and groom should be looking at each other and not the minister, priest or rabbi during the vows. About half of all grooms do not even look towards the bride during the vows!

6.) Give the photographer and organist a break and don't run down the aisle! This goes for the entire wedding party. If you walk nice and slow then everyone gets to see you, including the videographer and photographer.

7.) Chewing gum does not look good on camera. If you need to chew gum, try not to do it during the photo session.

8.) If you hire a professional hairdresser/makeup artist, make sure they are aware of when you need to be ready, not when the ceremony starts. Some hairdressers will continue to work right up until the time of the ceremony, leaving no time for any pictures!

9.) Hire a photographer and videographer who will not be disruptive or overbearing during your ceremony and reception.

10.) Have fun! Don't let anything get in the way of having fun on your wedding day.
