If you are looking for high quality and yet affordable wedding and bridal photography then In Style Photography is your place!
It’s OK, it’s just a photo shoot!
From time to time I come across a person or a couple who just cannot relax in front of the camera. This is unusual by any means. In fact few people are 100% comfortable being the center of attention. Not all of us are an attention seeking Kardashian! OK with that said below are a few tips which might help you when you have to get your head shot, model beauty shot or engagement/bridal photo:
- Be yourself! Too many time people feel the need to “act” instead of simply being who they are
- Move! As in actually move. I do not mean sprint like you’re in a race, but simple move and sway
- Take a deep breath. I know this sounds so simple but it really does work. Heck, take 2 deep breaths, couldn’t hurt
- If you have the choice shoot in a location that’s familiar to you. Strangers and storage places add to you being uncomfortable
- Feel comfortable with the photographer. Rather a good photographer will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and safe
As you can see, nothing on this list is terrible complicated. In fact it’s pretty darn basic. But of none of this works, there’s alway wine!

Does the personality of your photographer really matter?
Of course I am going to say yes to this question, and I do have my reasons . When selecting your photographer most have been told to look at three things: price, quality of work and experience. While I cannot argue with any of those suggestions I would like to add a fourth to this list, personality!
If you stop to think about it for a moment you will realize that you will be spending the majority of your wedding day next to and interacting with your wedding photographer. Same goes with your guests! With this said, ask yourself this simple question; Do you want to be around a grumpy old, “I hate my job” kind of photographer? Or do you want to be around one who is fun, funny, has the ability to relax you and not get stressed out and most of all, one who really enjoys their job?
I would add this component to your selection process when deciding on your photographer be it for your; wedding, family portrait or any photographic event. So the next time you are talking to a prospective photographer try to ascertain whether her/she is relaxed, open and fun. I am not talking hiring a stand up comic, but hire one that at least has a sense of humor!
If you have decided to have anything photographed the obviously it is important to you, so a full time professional photographer is vital!

Why do brides need professional a makeup artist?
I am not a professional makeup artist. I am, however, a professional wedding photographer based in Houston, TX. Why does talking about Houston, TX matter and what does this have to do with makeup? Simple, humidity!
If you know anything about an outdoor wedding in the summer in Houston you know that one thing is guaranteed to happen and that is you will sweat! When you sweat you get shiny and when you get shiny you want me to photoshop the “shiny” out of the photos, which is 100% impossible to do. So how to you combat this? Well, the answer is easy and not nearly as expensive as you think. Hire a professional makeup artist.
When it comes to wedding photography I view everything through the eyes of a wedding photographer. Brilliant, right! In my 14+ years of experience one thing I have learned is the value of professionally applied makeup on your wedding day. If you hire a true professional such as Tara Elle Artistry you will see that not only is this affordable it will make all the difference in the overall quality of your photos. Yes, make up and quality photography go hand in hand. Below are a list of reason why:
- 1) No shine! Makeup take the shine off your face. Less shine better photos!
- 2) Even skin tones. The more even your skin tones the smoother and more angelic your skin will look
- 3) Pros use high end makeup specific for hot, humid situations
- 4) Makeup that is applied for photography will handle my flash better
- 5) It’s your wedding day. Don’t you want to simply look the best you can?
I understand that it seems that everyone has their hand out asking you to pay them. I get it, I really do. But I am one who truly believes in spending the bulk of the money in YOU and NOT your guests. I say buy professional photography, video, makeup and hair and worry less about what your guests will eat.
