6 tips for wedding poses that you must implement during wedding photo shoots.

  • 1. Start with traditional poses Start with simple poses to help the group feel comfortable in front of the camera. Place all the boys next to the groom and line up the married girls next to the bride. Make sure to place the men on the side so that we can see their flower. Girls should hold their bouquet at the same height. Ask the bridal party to tilt their bodies slightly towards the bride and groom to draw attention to the center of the frame (this also helps you focus on the most important people - the groom and groom!). Simple poses like these are great for getting started, and will ensure you get a great result right away. Important to establish a standard flower, jacket button, attached or not. Sunglasses or not.

  • 2. Tip: To turn this traditional pose into something more creative, try photographing the group from different angles. Also, members who

  • look in another direction rather than just at the camera. Repeat the same exercise with each small group. When you only take the bride and groom, witnesses and procession, after the traditional pose, tell the people to go next to their partner. Important, make sure it is balanced on each side in number and size. Some traditional photos. Then make the procession turn towards their partner and take some space. Take the time to walk around and take individual photos of each couple. In the same way, continue by inviting the procession. Take the time to look at all the details, jacket buttons.

  • 3. Add props for photos and change scenery: Use props to be creative for photos. Do not forget to take photos of the bride and groom with the vehicles.

  • 4. Use the decor in width and depth but always keep the bride and groom as the center of the objective. If you are limited in space, use props such as chairs to vary the plan.

  • 5. Include poses in action: An easy way to do this is to photograph the motorcade marching together. With a few minimal directions, it can be a quick and easy way to capture everyone's natural emotions and expressions. Line up the procession and slowly lead them towards you as they talk and laugh with each other. Be sure to remind them not to look at the camera during the movements. The idea is to take them as naturally as possible. You can invite them to look in different directions.

  • 6. Take photos of the bride with the groomsmen and the groom with the groomsmen. Traditional and diverse.

  • 7. Save as much time as possible for the couple's photo shoot only.

Any element that could impact the course of the photo shoot must be reported in the facebook group dedicated to the wedding (delay, presence of a large number of guests, non-cooperation of the bride and groom)
