Natural light is key when it comes to bride preps. I try to emphasize to my brides that natural light always looks better than overhead lights. I try to convince them to get their hair and make-up done in front of a large window. This will allow for a great natural look. Overhead lights can give a bride a zombie look under their eyes…that is not flattering. So remember; to try to get in front of a window and leave room for your photographer and videographer to move around in front of you. Same thing goes when putting on your jewelry. Don’t put your earrings on in the bathroom…find a window with sun light and put them on near the window.
