Five Wedding Poses That Just Work


Your wedding photos are some of the things you will carry with you and cherish forever. Of course you want those to be perfect, let us help with that! Whether it is a shot in front of a historic brick building, or in a gorgeous field with gold rays of sunshine you will be the main focus. Unless you are a professional model, the hottest wedding poses right now might not come naturally. Do not worry, we have five examples of how to showcase the love you already know you have! 

Individual Shots

Let’s first talk about individual shots. While you are getting ready as the bride and the groom, you can have some memorable shots. The photographer will capture personal and charming photos as the day is starting. In these shots, you see the reflection and excitement. All of the feelings they have as they are getting ready!

A Bride having a photo with her dress can be an intimate and sweet moment. Some brides have been waiting maybe a lifetime of dreaming of their dress, so this can capture a touching moment. 

Getting ready for the groom can look a bit different. Getting shots like adjusting a tie, buttoning a suit jacket, or tying a shoe can be strong handsome shots.

5 Wedding Poses

1: First Touch

If you are opting out of doing a first look, this might be a pose for your must-do list. This is called a “first touch”. In this pose, you can share a touch, exchange gifts, or just words of love and excitement. All of this before walking down the aisle to say “I Do”. So, a shot like this can capture an eager smile or even a happy tear. This type of first look captures the raw emotions of the couple and will be such a unique shot!

2: Hollywood Kiss

This next pose is a stunning pose because of the truly romantic nature. In all its Hollywood drama, this pose includes the dip and a kiss, and how can you not love this intimate shot!  The photo can have a dramatic flair and also have a closeness in the embrace.  Not only does it capture the dress, but it also adds a classic movie screen romance all brides hope and dreams of!

3: Walk With Me

With such an effortless pose you can capture all the candid moments. Even a beautiful background is highlighted in a photo like this, there is nothing that is not captured in the “walk with me” pose. So, all you have to do is hold hands, dress flows, smiles and laughs included! Naturally, this creates great shots looking at each other, and at the stunning surroundings. Because it can capture the whole outfit of both the Bride and Groom, it creates a first-class photo.

4: Bride Twirl

A very sweet moment is made out of twirling the bride and capturing a princess-like photo. This action shot turns out a marvelous view of the bride and groom. A dress pops, a groom’s smile shines, or even a veil flowing in the wind. Have him give it a whirl or two and you can come out with many stunning shots!

5: The Kissing Veil

We have to mention a must kissing shot for any couple to give a try. How about kissing under your gorgeous veil! It creates an intimate shot of the bride and groom enclosed in a lacy tent. What we love about this shot besides how breathtaking it is, is the light that still shines through on the couple creating a warm unbelievable shot.
