Question for the photographers on the forum..


Recommended Posts

So Sarah just came back from Cabo and met with a photographer. He told her not to tan for two months before her wedding because lighter skin shows up better in pics.. Or something like that.

 

Can someone please help me out on this? I'm not understands. I'm getting married in three months and I was going to start tanning this month.

here are my thoughts on the subject. "pale" untanned skin photographs better than fake baked "orange" skin. no doubt about that. i had one DW wedding where it was pretty obvious there had been a fair amount of fake baking and fake tanning lotion used prior to the wedding and the bride and bridesmaids seriously had an orange cast to them. ive never had a bride who looked bad because she was pale but ive had brides whos fake skin color/weird lines (you know like you get down your arms from a tanning bed or when the tanning lotion isnt applied quite right!) looked really noticeable.

 

i understand part of the destination wedding look is that sunkissed glow but sometimes it can go wrong. i know you dont want to look like casper on your wedding day but you dont want to look like louis the lobster either.

Ok so some sun will be ok as long it doesn't look fake and red?
