Wedding photographers will often recommend that you get a good night’s sleep, have a big breakfast, and wear waterproof mascara (if you’re into that kind of thing) to your wedding. But don’t forget the importance of being prepared for those intimate moments, like your first kiss as a married couple. Here are some tips to help make sure you get the best wedding kiss photos.
Practice makes perfect! This may seem silly, but if you are not comfortable kissing in front of other people, then practice at home first or at rehearsals then it won’t seem awkward to kiss in front of all of your family and friends at the ceremony.
Pick the perfect pose. Standing with your hands clasped together can look awkward and stiff, so consider a more natural pose where your hands are touching each other's bodies. If you do decide to go for clasped-hands approach, make sure that both of your shoulders are facing forward instead of off to different angles.
Have your officiant move aside; Congrats, you're now officially married! Instead of having your officiant introduce you as Mr and Mrs., have them move aside for your first kiss as husband and wife. Your audience will be happy they waited to see this moment, and the pictures will be much better.
Don't forget to smile. A trick I always have our couples do is to kiss, smile then pull back. Take your time, don't rush, after all this is your first kiss as husband and wife. Embrace this moment.
Hope these tips will help you prepare for the first kiss.
