Your photographer should be able to edit/photoshop out any visible blemishes. I’d also recommend getting a medium/full coverage foundation just to help out.

@NJmeetsBX:  Get a good color correcting primer for under your makeup. Smashbox makes some nice ones.

The right make-up will forgive a lot of imperfections. It may be worth it to get your make-up profgessionally done for the photo shoot.

Having your makeup professionally done with work wonders! And photo shop is a lifesaver!

@NJmeetsBX:  If you’re getting your make up professionally done, you’ll be surprised how much that really hides.  I was when I had mine done for an engagement session.

As a photographer, I will also say that retouching acne is one of the easiest things to do in photoshop!  Just ask your photog to do it for you, and they likely will.  I do it automatically to my photos if I find it distracting.

Yes tell your photographer about it so they are aware and the polite thing would be to ask if there may be an extra editing charge to do that or if it’s included. When I know clients are worried about skin issues I will slightly over expose the skin when shooting to take care of some of it and edit the rest. Be careful not to overdo it on makeup – too much makeup can actually make editing the acne a bit harder.

Blemishes are really easy to clone out using photoshop. Just ask your photographer about it – they may or may not charge extra depending on your package.
