Three Sydney wedding photographers reveal the top wedding photography poses
Wedding photography poses: A kiss on the cheek
In this wedding photography pose, the bride holds her veil out behind her and laughs or smiles when the groom kisses her on the cheek or whispers something in her ear. This is a wedding photography pose that is flattering to all brides because it looks like you are a part of a special moment and the bride’s smile is contagious.
“The groom kissing the bride on the cheek draws your attention to the bride, after all, she is the star,” says Jay. “Having the bride hold the veil out lengthens and slims her arm and shows off her veil. This is a great pose because you can show off the veil without needing a gust of wind to catch it.”
Wedding photography poses: Lean back
“This is a very romantic and interactive wedding photography pose and accentuates the curves of a bride in all the right places. The bride may not be used to being dipped so it creates a fun atmosphere in the photo as well,” says Marion from Marions Photographics. “As the bride extends her arm backwards, it can help make her arms look more slender and create a beautiful waistline where the groom holds her back.”
Wedding photography poses: Snuggle
The groom leans against a wall or fence and the bride snuggles into his side. This wedding photography pose makes the man look strong and confident while the bride looks feminine and dainty. By placing the bride’s feet in the same direction as the groom, she then twists her torso to be able to look at the camera, which slims down the figure and makes her look really elegant.
Wedding photography poses: Please be seated
It’s great trying to have variations in wedding photography poses and angles, and also in levels, whether the bride is sitting or standing. For brides with the big full skirt, it’s a great way to show off the dress. Have the bride seated with her shoulders back and looking over her shoulder. This accentuates the collarbone and extends the neckline, giving that real swan-like look.
Wedding photography poses: Over the shoulder
“Sometimes the best wedding photography pose is the most spontaneous one. Giving the couple minimal direction and allowing the bride and groom to interact with each other can allow the really natural look that couples love. Don’t obsess whether the photographer is capturing every single moment — enjoy your wedding day and you will be surprised at what special moments they capture for you.
