Celebrity stylist Amber Renae offers a quick and fun master class on maximising your best assets on your wedding day. Learn how to work your best angles in photographs, choose the right colours for your skin tone and walk with presence down the aisle.
Anyone in the fashion industry will tell you that there is a huge difference between working with an experienced model and a gorgeous amateur. An experienced model has had years of styling direction from photographers and stylists and is therefore aware of her best features and knows how to play them up while hiding less desirable aspects of her face and body (say big hips Â â€” yes, even models have these issues). Regardless of how beautiful an inexperienced model is, the photographs produced are rarely as Â strong as those created by a less attractive but more experienced model.
For most girls, the only styling direction we have had in our lives is â€śSay cheese!â€ť.
Your wedding day will involve cameras pointing at you for literally the entire day, capturing every moment. Knowing your good angles and how to look your best in each photo will save time and give you much better wedding photos. Stylist extraordinaire Amber Renae has filled a much-needed void in the market with her bridal party styling sessions. Within a two-hour session, Amber will guide you and your bridal party through the art of posing for photos, walking down the aisle, sitting gracefully, getting out of a car and much more.
