Make sure to remind guests about what to wear. This is very important.

Dig in now to get the 101 on everything–preparations, styling, posing, and more!

 

(1) Book in advance.

(2) Don’t wait until you “get into perfect shape”.

Your photographer will always find the best angle and highlight not only the physical beauty you posses, but also your innate beauty.

 

(3) Have a detailed consultation with your photographer.
