Lets talk bridal portrait poses. Yeah!! I know what you’re thinking. Stand, smile, shoot. Wrong! I get the same reaction so frequently from brides who think its just that simple. It’s so much more then that so I thought I would take a few minutes to talk about what goes in to a well composed bridal portrait. In addition we need to consider creativity and uniqueness but that is for another day. Today is all about how to move your body to create dynamic and interesting images. I often think I should just make flash cards and then have them at the ready for a session but then that might just stifle our creative energy. For now it’s enough for us to talk about the basics and to look at some incredible examples.

The massive snow storms we’ve had recently got me to thinking about the challenges for wedding planning . . . particularly the weather. Outdoor weddings are a favorite with everyone but here on the East coast the weather can change in minutes. The question “What if?” preys heavily on many a couple’s minds. What if rain, what if wind, what if snow . . . you fill in the blank.
There’s nothing wrong with thinking through what you might do (tents, move indoors, etc.) but on the other hand, interesting weather can make for interesting memories. As a wedding photographer, I’m in the memories business so it’s something I pay attention to the weather. What’s cuter than a bevy of umbrellas? Whole families running to catch a blowing hat? A veil flying to the moon. Some of my couples’ favorite photographs were born from weather adversity.
