As you can see in this image we have turned the bride away from the camera, brought her shoulders back, accentuated the small of the back by pushing her bottom out slightly away from the camera. Also pay attention how her elbows are slightly off her body creating a triangle gap which is very flattering. We had her naturally hold her flowers tilted towards the camera. Her closer leg is crossing over her back leg, with all the weight on her back leg. We made her stand tall and turn her head away from the camera raising her chin slightly. From this pose you can make all kinds of subtle changes. An example of that would be: looking down at her flowers, looking down her shoulder or looking at the camera.
Here’s an exaggerated version of the S-curve. Doing it this way makes images very dramatic. The goal is to accentuate all of the curves
CLOSE UP POSING
There are many ways to do these shots but here are the basics. The camera should be higher than your eye line so you can look up towards it. The key is not to furrow your brow or wrinkle your forehead. The focus should always be on your eyes. Holding this pose when you look down at your flowers can really showcase your beautiful make up. These pictures are best done with natural lighting coming through a window without harsh sunlight.
Here are some examples of brides outside in the shade and pretty pictures of the bride looking down.
The train is a very important part of the dress, as well as the details of the back. The train should be photographed from the back, not wrapped around to be seen from the front. We have seen photographers mess this shot up like crazy! Face away from the photographer then turn your body and head slightly towards the camera like in this example makes for a stunning image.
