Our friends at Pixelicious (Montreal, QC) created this helpful list of simple posing tips to help you feel at ease in front of the camera on the big day. Enjoy!

1. Start by turning the body slightly away from the camera

We tend to avoid photographing female subjects straight on as this makes her look widest by seeing the full width between both shoulders. The other extreme is to turn the body completely sideways but this will emphasize the arm and the profile angle of the subject’s face, not always flattering for someone with a long or crooked nose. Therefore we only need to turn just slightly to capture a slimmer silhouette. As to turning left or right, that’s just a personal preference but girls tend to have a “better side”, we go with that if it makes her more comfortable.

Romantic, vintage inspired details abound in today’s real wedding, brought to us by Kelly of Faith Photography, Inc., based in Knoxville, TN! Here’s Kelly to tell us more:

Chantelle and Josh met on a blind date. Chantelle seems a little more outgoing and silly. Josh seems a little more quiet, until you get to know him. Josh is a hoot! He is a calming force with Chantelle; they complement each other well. They LOVE UT Vols football, hiking, backpacking, and just being together. They enjoy life. Josh asked Chantelle to marry him at Falling Water Falls in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Josh took Chantelle on a surprise hike to the top of the waterfall where he popped the question. As if anything could top that, Chantelle and Josh went on an Alaskan honeymoon.

This lavishly elegant and festive wedding comes to us from Deborah Elias of Elias Events Weddings, based in Houston, TX! Here’s Deborah to tel us more:

It was John Dascoulias who introduced the idea of the couple getting married, especially once the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in June 2015, but Clifford Pugh resisted. After all, they were committed to each other and no piece of paper would change that. But after Clifford was injured in a motorcycle accident, they decided it was the best thing to do to alleviate concerns like health benefits and to frankly just become legally married.
