Photography Poses and Tips
The following wedding photography tips will help in capturing perfect pictures without much difficulty.
  • The first thing to do is creating a checklist for poses. Meeting the family and knowing their expectations would be a great idea. It will help in sorting out most of the problems beforehand.

  • Clicking photos with children is the first thing to do. As we know that children have a short attention span, clicking their snaps in the beginning would let them be free to roam around later.
  • The photographer should never force his subjects to smile; it only makes the photos to appear unnatural.
  • One can never guess what is the perfect photograph idea from the point of view of the bride. It would be a smart thing to take the suggestion of the bride in deciding the perfect poses.
  • The photographer should constantly be on a lookout for perfect moments himself i.e. spontaneously. One cannot 'plan' everything about poses, apart from a few standard family photographs. To catch the most beautiful moments, one needs to have special skills to catch those tender moments.
