Hmm, this sounds like old fashioned wedding thinking, where authenticity was exchanged for "perfection." I think these people own mirrors. I'd rather highlight what makes people unique, rather than feed into this outdated concept that you should hide any imperfections. Do your best to make your production perfect, and let the reality come through full force IMO.

We have had brides request to more or less remove them from the video - one bride in particular due to an imaginary double-chin. In that sort of case you should just show you're attempting to "fix" it but don't lose perspective on what your real job is.
