The wedding survival guide - Looking good in picturesMonday, 3 September 2012

"Posing for a successful glamour portrait is very simple. Start with the basics. Turn sideways, lean back against a wall, move your chin forward to elongate your neck, relax your shoulders, make angles wherever possible.
If you're over 24, smile at all times. Keep your arms slightly away from your sides so as not so smush them and make them look larger. Suck your stomach up and in and wrap your buttocks towards the back, pilates style.
Be yourself. When you look into the lens, imagine you are looking at a dear friend, but not a friend who would laugh at you for jutting out your chin while arching your back against a fake wall."
