As a bride begins her wedding shopping, she spends months scouring the Internet for her dream photographer. She wants someone who will capture all of the major events, be there for the candid moments, and of course, make her look fabulous during her bridal portraits – it is her day, after all.

This week, we are again focusing on the art of wedding photography poses by sharing 3 tricks to better groomsmen poses.
Having a few “go-to” wedding photography poses is important for any wedding or portrait photographer. While it’s never a great idea to try to mold each and every couple into the same series of poses, it is extremely helpful to have a solid foundation in basic posing rules and techniques. The “V Up” is a name that we came up with for the most basic pose. This is the very first pose every wedding photographer should learn, perfect, and teach their subjects because it will be used so often throughout the wedding day. It’ll be the pose they get into for the family formals, for their classic full body portrait, and many more times throughout the day. Learn the fundamentals of this pose and how to use it by watching the video below.
Engagement sessions are a great way to connect with your clients, but they are very different from the grueling marathon of photographing a wedding. You have a lot more time than you do on the wedding day to set up poses and get to know the couple. Here at ShootDotEdit, we help wedding pros with their color correction and print sales, and we see a lot of engagement sessions each and every season.
