wedding posesYour wedding day is the biggest and the happiest day of your life and you do not want to miss any opportunity to preserve those precious moments in the form of a great wedding album.

Without the right blend of lighting, exposure, and most importantly poses, you simply can’t create memories you truely want. Here is a list of some basic wedding photo ideas and poses to inspire your wedding day photo shoot and make an amazing wedding album.

3 – Close Up

Close-Up is by far the most common and the simplest wedding pose in wedding photography. In this pose, the couples are required to come closer to each other gazing directly into one another’s eyes, or the bride is asked to look away demurely. The Close Up pose is perfect for taking intimate and romantic photos of the couples.

As the name suggests, the “stacked pose” is perfect for taking romantic photos of the couple. There are so many different ways you can stack a groom and a bride; groom holding the bride from behind, bride hugging the groom from behind, groom and bride stacked spreading their hands, groom bringing in the bride for a kiss on the forehead, etc.

It is probably one of the trickiest poses and therefore should be practiced a few times before putting on the wedding dress and makeup. Make sure that this pose is done selectively and the groom is comfortable holding up the bride’s weight.
