Springtime Crabapple Photo Shoot Ideas (4)

Today’s lovely guest post, brought to us by Pixelicious (Montreal, QC) is the perfect inspiration for a springtime photo shoot! Enjoy:

They aren’t tall. They aren’t wide. When you see them lined up by the dozens, they will emerge into one of the most vibrant backdrops one will ever find. Their glamour is short-lived, however. Just like the cherry trees, the crabapples’ bloom lasts anywhere between two days to two weeks, subject to the weather forecast. The petals will eventually fall, often together like snowflakes, marking its end in dramatic fashion.

We understand that planning a wedding is likely a first for many of our clients, therefore, we emphasize clear communication and guidance that surpasses the parameters of photography.

My team naturally finds beauty, elegance and personality in each of our weddings and we tell those stories through the lens of the camera.

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.
