Timelessly Elegant Wedding in Montreal (8)

Today’s gorgeous real wedding comes to us from Stephane Lemieux Photography, based in Montreal, Canada! Here’s Stephane to tell us more:

The wedding of Elise and David will remain memorable for several reasons, but among other things for having been caught in the turmoil of a microstorm during the cocktail. The sky suddenly covered and in a matter of minutes or seconds, the winds unleashed in what looked more like a tornado or a tropical storm. The guests, employees, and myself had to sneak into the building to shelter us. However, one could say that this fortuitous event had almost no impact on the course of the day. Indeed, the cocktail was rather at its end.

How to Have a Perfect Winter Wedding (5)

Today’s guest post, brought to us by Steve Gerrard Photography (Montreal, QC) is brimming with helpful tips and insights to help you have a perfect winter wedding!

As I sit here in my studio close to Montreal, the snow is drifting down outside, covering cars and making drivers question going anywhere. And this is just the start of it. As we know, the coming months will bring heavier snow and plummeting temperatures. A Canadian winter is considerably more challenging than the ones I grew up with back in the UK. As a wedding photographer I’ve shot multiple winter weddings back in England but, after relocating to Montreal three years ago, winter weddings bring with them a different level of planning than those in the warmer months. And yet, there are plenty of couples who don’t allow the cold weather to put them off exchanging vows when temperatures plummet.

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.
