It's your big day! After all the planning and stress that you've gone through, it's time to celebrate your special day and cherish it always. Well, the best way to do that, of course, is with your wedding photos. You want your pictures to be flawless and to capture your special day perfectly. With the help of a great photographer and a few wedding posing tips, your pictures will stand out. So, Wedding and Party Network has some tips for posing for your pictures.
Relax – First off, relax. Some people maybe uncomfortable in front of a camera, and they definitely can show through. It's your wedding day! You should be relaxed and ready to go and this should show through in your pictures.
Chin Down –When posing for your pictures, remember to tilt your chin down just a bit. People intuitively lift their chin, maybe to avoid the dreaded double chin, however, tilt your chin down where you normally hold it. It's more flattering.
Stand Tall – How many times have we heard, stand up straight, don't slouch? Too many times. However, they were right! Standing tall provides a sense of confidence in your photos. When someone is slouching in their photos, you notice it. When someone stands tall, you're just thinking to yourself how great their photo turned out. Stand up, hold your shoulders back slightly and tip your hips forward a touch and you'll be standing tall.
Angles – Don't forget to play with angles. Don't face the camera head on, you may notice that in a lot of advertising photos or modeling pictures. It's more flattering to stand at an angle and have one shoulder closer to the camera. Place one foot forward, turn your other foot to the side, which will give you an angular shape.
Practice Makes Perfect – Don't think you look silly posing in front of the mirror, practice makes perfect. Pose in front of the mirror. Learn what angles work best for you and facial expressions.
Of course, ask your wedding photographer for some pointers. They know what works best and what doesn't since photography is their job. They'll also be glad to give you direction the day of and come up with some great poses that will make your wedding day unforgettable throughout your wedding pictures.
