Wedding poses ideas with photo examples
Today pictures are in the center of attention of everyone and every single days we are scrolling through hundreds of them. But have you been thinking what makes your eyes stop and notice a special image? The research saying that today the most noticeable picture is the one which looks natural and genuine.
When it comes to wedding photography some brides prefer to have high fashion photography style and other prefer to have very natural candid style when every picture tells a story.
HD Studio style called 'Organic' because we always make sure that the pictures we took look natural and realistic.
We heard so many times from our clients that they don't feel comfortable in front of camera. All this wedding photography part makes them just awkward and they don't like to look "frozen" on their wedding pictures. We 100% agree with this concept.
I guess for every buyer there is a seller, same way every client choose a photographer who's vision match with their own.
Wedding pictures should tell the story about you and your relationships. If you are more serious than goofy the images should be more classy, if you like to have fun- please don't hide it- be yourself.
"First 15 minuets of each photoshoot is "stretching" time. I make sure that my models/clients having a good time and just being themselves during the wedding day"- Paulina, HD Studio owner, professional photographer-" Both couple and the photographer should get used each other and start behave as a friends".
Wedding photographer profession can be compared with psychologist job. You trying to dig into the soul and to open up the most beautiful parts of it. You are always ON, and you always next to the client but same time there is never too much of you, because you are behind the scene artist.
Weddings are fun and we love when our clients forget about the stress and about the 'to do photo list' and live their beautiful day in very unique happy way.
When time comes to the photoshoot (romantic pictures) HD Studio make sure that this part of the day is fun for everyone.
What is the main trick to look natural on the wedding pictures? The answer is just to be yourself, have fun and enjoy each other. All we need for good pictures is your natural emotions. We want you to be alive! Don't freeze always keep moving!
We created a photo ideas list which helps us to direct the couple on the shoot. This list is more like inspiration and reminder of different angles. It's not 'to do' list at all. Each couple is unique and we always approach everyone in different way.
The best posing are coming through natural motion. Basically the best way of take action shots is to ask model to move around and the same time we should to photograph them. HD Studio photographers never afraid to try something new! Sometime the pose we are tiring to achieve is not the main goal, but the emotion reaction that what we get from that.
