The trouble with an old fashioned style of posing is that it is so static and cardboard. Modern brides and grooms want amazing, beautiful images that reflect how fantastic they looked while still retaining a natural feel. An experienced photographer will know how to get the best out of you and your wedding venue in a short amount of time, giving you the WOW images you dream of, all without making you feel like you are posing.
The idea of having to P.O.S.E. sends shivers down the spine of many couples. Think awkward cheesy grins, weird uncomfortable looking limbs, contrived poses and not-so-flattering angles. Thankfully this is not something you have to endure at your wedding in the 21st century.
With over 16 years experience I have learnt how to get the best out of the most camera shy brides and awkward grooms. It's not about posing, it's about how I communicate with my couples and direct them quickly and gently so they don't feel like they are being posed. I ask them to do normal, everyday things like "hold hands and walk towards that tree" If you can follow an instruction as simple as that then... THATS IT! It really is no more complicated than that. You really have nothing to fear! By getting to know you and your preferences in the weeks before the wedding, you can be confident that I won't push you outside your comfort zone. I want you to enjoy these few minutes as newly weds: and making memorable images does not have to be an endurance test.
If you want to look natural and comfortable in your images, be sure to find yourself a wedding photographer who can direct you to look beautifully "unposed" and capture the genuine emotion between you.
