At MAC Photography, we have created a reputation of excellence for wedding day portraits in the Piedmont Triad area and beyond. You can be confident that we will capture the monumental moments of your wedding day with professionalism, delivering the elegant, powerful and dramatic portraits that we are known for.

As you prepare for your wedding day, consider these guidelines to help you look and feel your best on your big day.

Hair and Makeup
Even if you prefer a more natural look, investing in a hair stylist and professional make up artist can take your wedding portraits from ordinary to extraordinary. Though we do retouch portraits, excessive work will cost extra. You will be amazed with the results that you can get with the aid of professional beauty consultants.

If you are a smoker or coffee lover, have your teeth bleached before your big day as well—either professionally or with some bleaching strips. These things can save you a lot of money in the long run, and make you feel extra special on your wedding day.

Bridal Glow
You want to look like yourself, so unless you tan as part of your regular beauty routine, don’t try to look too bronzed on your big day. Instead, keep your skin looking healthy and radiant by staying well hydrated and using a good moisturizer on your face and body every day after showering. Once your big day arrives, lotion with a subtle shimmer will photograph nicely and help balance your skin tone.

Beauty Sleep
As the wedding date nears, you will be tempted to pull all-nighters, preparing centerpieces, making travel arrangements, making favors and putting the finishing touches on your big day. Whatever you do, be sure to get plenty of rest during this time. Avoid excessive drinking (no bachelorettes) and get eight hours of sleep the entire week before your wedding day, for a rested, radiant look that is most suiting a new bride.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Stress can not only ruin your big day, but it can also have a negative effect on your wedding day portraits as well. If you are relaxed and happy, it will make everyone around you happy too. If you are cranky, stressed and emotional, everyone in the wedding party is going to feel it too. Try to keep a positive attitude throughout your day so those smiles in your portraits won’t look like cringes.

We know that your wedding day is as unique as you are. Because of this, we offer a variety of pricing options to meet most budgets—ranging from $995 – 3995. Our selection of products will impress you, from photo books and CDs to slideshows and thank you cards, there is something for everyone.

We welcome your business. Please call to arrange a complimentary consultation today. 336-338-3702
