Flattering Angles

As with official photos, many people are inclined to face the camera straight on. Not only does this hide all those beautiful features of your face as the photo will make you look flatter, but it will be uncomfortable to sit in that position while the photo is taken.

Try to tilt yourself on an angle, showing off your best side- the side which you feel looks more attractive facing the camera. This enhances the shape of your face and casts the light over your facial features, creating naturally lit accents over your facial features.

If you are someone who worries about a pesky double chin making an appearance on your photos, tilt your head up slightly- your neck will look elegant, we promise!


It usually takes a few attempts to get a photograph where you aren’t mid-blink. It’s not a great look, but it’s also one that can be avoided.

Focusing on the camera lens can keep your eyes focused which means that you won’t blink as much. It’s also worth noting that photo booths don’t generally use flashes, so there’s no chance you’ll be caught off guard with a blinding flash of light!


We’ve seen a lot of people hold their breath when having their photo taken, and we can’t quite pinpoint why.
