Not getting enough sleep
The camera feels everything, and a tired look does not paint anyone. Ideally, for a photoshoot, it is advisable to set aside a separate day in order to calmly prepare and not rush anywhere.
To dye hair
And also, to make eyebrows, eyelashes, etc. (if you haven’t done it before), do not rehearse makeup and hair before the wedding photoshoot. Not everything can be fixed in Photoshop.
Don’t take water with you
For shoots that last an hour or more, I make a moodboard presentation in which I write a list of what I need to take with me to the shoot. A photosession is a very energy-intensive process, a bottle of drinking water will come in handy.
It’s about studying poses and then demonstrating them at a photo shoot. POSING IS NOT NEEDED. When you remember poses, it shows on your face. Relax and enjoy, I will do all the shots for you.
Do not bring clothes from the moodboard
We take clothes, shoes and some props for shooting STRICTLY according to the mood board. In my practice, it was such that clients scored on what we had already discussed, and instead brought something else. In addition, you can take, but DO NOT REPLACE without agreement with me. The idea is no longer the same.
Take someone with you
A child when there is “no one to leave him with” or a girlfriend “for company”, again, if this was not agreed in advance. For most of the shooting process, you will be distracted. It won’t tune you in or me out. Please don’t do this.
Choose the “wrong” photographer
View portfolio. Look at what genres the photographer shoots in and how he processes photos. If you like pictures, but color correction is not close, for example, then you should not choose this photographer. You need to look for someone who responds. This will be the best cooperation.
Do not consult with the photographer
Do not warn me, for example, that you are not ready to walk barefoot on the grass or to what extent you are ready to undress in a nude shoot. These are important points, they should always be discussed.
