#1. Manicure

If you are serious about having a fabulous collection of wedding portraits showing off your hands, there is no way you can neglect a perfect manicure.

#2. Moisturise

Those cracked peels of skin around your nails will not only spoil the beauty of your hands, but will also make the wedding album suffer. Hands are among the most used and exposed part of the body. So, every time you rinse your hands, apply a coat of good moisturiser. It is necessary to moisturise your hands, irrespective of the season of the year. This helps to keep them soft and young forever.

#6. Practice to make it perfect

Couple holding hands is not an ordinary portrait, rather, it is one of the moments defining togetherness. So, to attain perfection in this shot, you need to practice a bit. Even if you had month long beautifying sessions for your hands, they are not photo-ready until and unless they are presented properly. So, get prepared to hold hands of your partner in a right way. It is also a good idea to refer some photos.
