    Default URGENT: Wedding Photography Answer on Nail Color

    Hi,

    Does any of the seasoned wedding photographers know whether a bride should have:

    1. Dark nail colour (maybe deep red)
    2. Light nail colour
    3. French manicure

    When doing pre wedding shoots?

    I just heard an anectode from a manicurist who says that wedding shoots always use light colour because deeper/darker colours look awful on photographs Is this true?

    Would appreciate urgent assistance from the wedding pros.

    French or neutral for me. I find red very very distracting especially since digital cams have that tendency to blow out reds. Unless of course the point of the picture is to have red nails.

    Most often it was red or people did not use at all during the 70s. Now nail decor seems the norm and is part and parcel of the shoot. The modern bride is more particular about her nails than the old days. Now they want you to zoom in on their nails. color does not matter; in photo-taking color contrast is important.

    since it is a matter that the photos look good or not, you as the photographer should decide
    what do you think?

    light nail colour can match with different colour gown better

    The gown fitter should be in better position to decide on a nail theme to fit the various bridal dress.

    Poor color matching would just stand out like sore thumb.

    Better yet, have fake nails to snap on to match various outfits.
