I had my engagement photos taken while wearing mineral make-up.  There was no problem.  I simply put on a very light coat of a non-mineral powder over my finished look.  I love it and will be wearing it for my wedding.  I have very pale skin, so even without the make-up I have a tendency to look washed out in photographs — that didn’t happen with the minderal makeup.  In fact, the make-up that makes me the most washed out looking is MAC.  PM me if you want a link to my engagement photos.

I’m not AA, but my lovely SIL is.  She wore BareMinerals for my wedding, and she looked fantastic in the photos.  (Of course, with her incredible skin coloring, she looks fantastic ALL the time, but I digress.)  🙂  She has told me  that if she’s going to be photographed in that makeup, she uses a little extra blush to counteract any potential wash-out.  Hope this helps, good luck!

I’m not AA, but in photos I do tend to have a little shine because of the foundation so I know what you mean about the glow.  In some photos more than others it almost makes my skin look oily.  I was told it is because of the titanium dioxide in the powder, so maybe this is what you’ve heard of.  If you don’t see it in photos you’ve taken, then I would think you should be fine.
