Your best bet would be to use skin softening software in post processing rather than trying to do it with the camera. Be careful though as this can be overdone making the skin look like plastic.

+1.

to reduce shadows that accentuate the bumps you can light from directly in front, but that will make all features seem flat; shoot with nice light for everything else and use software to fix the skin

Over-expose little or use skin softening.

Use clarity slider in Lightroom. Pull back -10 and go from there. Or use adjustment brush with same clarity slider for more localized comtrol

You need local smoothing with layer masks. We need your permission to edit your photos.

Go to USER CP at the top of the page, click to 'Edit Profile and click the button for 'Image Editing and repost permission'

Nguyen, I love the photo in your Flickr set where the groom is standing on a brick to give him more height!

If you will give us permission to edit your images as MakisM1 asks above, we can show you what some limited post processing can do for the photo.
