Getting the Best Wedding Photos

Wedding photography is one of the key elements of wedding planning. You and your love already have spent a lot of time, energy as well as money to choose the best for your big day. You may pick the famous wedding photographer out there. But how do you ensure that you get the perfect wedding photos working with him. Here are a few tips.

Start Early

Start your special day early. You will be settled and more relaxed, you will have a lot of fun, and it will accommodate any schedule problems that may come up. The earlier that you’re dressed up and get ready, the more pictures can be shot. There’s a big variance in the number of pictures that you will get between those who start photo session early and those that plan with just a minimal amount of time.

Consider Light

To get the most from your wedding photos, make time for couple pictures within the hour just before sunset as it provides beautiful, warm, and perfect light. Usually, the optimum time to plan this is between your ceremony and your wedding reception entrance. On the other hand, planning your portraits around midday is hard for your wedding photographer to produce stunning imagery. Harsh sun at noon produces heavy shadows which is unfavorable for perfect wedding photos.

Engagement Session

Other than getting wonderful engagement photographs, an engagement session can create a bond between you and your photographer. He/she gets an opportunity to see your character and personality and how you actually react while taking photos. Consider engagement sessions as a practice for your big event. If you are not able to have an engagement session or just don’t want to have one, it’s highly recommended that the both of you meet your photographer in person to get familiar – maybe you can have dinner time together. The more you understand your photographer, the more comfortable you will be during the marriage.

Smile and Laugh

Stress and tight plans could make the wedding day not as enjoyable as its imagined. But smiling is something you can use to cover that tiredness. Having everybody at your wedding in high tones will yield more photos and importantly better photos. Laughter is truly contagious, and it creates the very best smiles. Keep your special day as light-hearted as you possibly can. Put around you those who unveil the best in you, those who make you smile and laugh.

Tooth care and preventing tooth decay

Tooth care and preventing tooth decayBesides regular dental check-ups, there are numerous things you can do yourself that will improve the overall health of your teeth and prevent as much tooth decay as possible.
Most people know to brush their teeth at least twice a day however what you may not know is that you should wait at least an hour after eating before you brush your teeth. Brushing immediately after eating can actually damage your teeth, especially if you’ve had fruit, anything fizzy, wine or any food that contains acid. Your body produces saliva with bacteria in it that neutralises these items but it needs about an hour to do its work, so try to leave your teeth for at least an hour after eating.

Brushing your tongue when you brush your teeth is also very helpful as it will not only help keep your breath smelling fresh, but also remove bacteria.
It is very important to replace your toothbrush with a new one regularly. Every two months or when the bristles start to look worn is a good indication that you need a new toothbrush.
Flossing – no doubt every time you’ve ever visited a dentist they have mentioned that you should floss daily and there is a very good reason why they say this. Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between your teeth and under your gum line.

Mouthwash that does not have alcohol in it is also a great way of keeping tooth decay away. What most people do not know, though, is that you should not use it after brushing your teeth – it should be used at a different time during the day, after lunch for instance. It’s also important to not eat or drink for half an hour afterwards.

It may be worth speaking to your dentist about getting a dental sealant, which is a plastic protective coating, applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars (back teeth) to protect them from decay.

Cutting down on food high in sugar is also very helpful as the sugar is turned into acid that then eats away at the enamel on your teeth, making them more susceptible to tooth decay.
If you are concerned about discolouration of your teeth and cannot afford to have them whitened, a terrific way of helping your teeth stay white or bringing back the white if they are stained is to brush with bi-carb soda after you have brushed with your normal toothpaste. Doing this twice a day will improve the colour of your teeth markedly and is a cost effective way of having, and keeping, whiter teeth.

Most importantly, you should go to your dentist at least twice a year for a check-up. Putting it off may lead to more damage to your teeth which means more work for your dentist and a higher cost to yourself. Being proactive about your teeth care is the best way to make sure your teeth are always in the best condition.
