Almost every bride spends months planning her wedding day to ensure everything is perfect. The photos are incredibly important because these memories will be cherished forever. There are eight incredible poses from sweet, to modern; to amusing every couple should take on their wedding day.
One of the most classic and romantic poses is called Old Hollywood. You stand facing your groom with your back facing the camera. Raise your arm to touch your grooms face, turning just enough to enable your photographer to capture your profiles. Your photo will be lovely, structured and highlight the back of your dress.
The Embrace is a classic love pose. Stand behind your groom, but just a little bit closer to the camera. Rest your head on your groom’s shoulder and your hand on his arm. Look directly into the camera with a soft smile. Your photograph will convey both joy and contentment.
The most important pose of all is called The First Look. This is considered a semi-pose because the photographer will not interfere once you have set up the pose. The number of ways to convey the first look is nearly unlimited. The idea is to make certain the photographer captures the first reaction of the bride and groom. This pose was created to show the joy and emotion that only happens in a marriage. The photo also helps eliminate any jitters or butterflies because the couple is looking in the opposite direction of the guests.
Most of the portraits taken of happy couples are with the bride and groom standing side by side and looking directly at the camera. The Modern Bride Portrait adds a special moment to this classic pose. The bride and groom do not talk to each other. They simply remember how they felt the very first time they saw each other. This moment is then captured for all time.
The Lean and Kiss is exactly like it sounds. The couple leans into one another and kiss. This pose is exceptional with something special in the background such as a sunset or a fountain.
The Tie Grab is perfect for the sassy bride. Gently tug on your groom’s tie, and then lean in for a kiss. The simplicity makes this pose extraordinary.
The Vignette is all about nature. Use leaves, trees or flowers as the background for a special and intimate moment.
The Sneak Peek represents the joy of the day. The photographer calls out the name of the bride or groom when they are together and snaps a photo for instant charm.
Whatever poses you decide to use for your big day, may it be filled with joy, love and eternal happiness.
