Editorial Wedding Dress Shoot

Mary, a professional model, was amazing for this shoot showing a Halo & Wren Bridal wedding dress and Sash & Veil cape. I used these photos recently to show brides the body angles which models use when having their photos taken - not that wedding photographers expect brides to do this on their wedding day! or want them to, but brides do often ask how best to stand. Creating angles/triangles with your arms, legs, hands etc helps the image avoid looking rigid and flat - also keep your fingers loose, master the three quarters pose, where you turn your body slightly away from the camera, look behind the camera or into the eyes of the photographer, keep your poses moving and alive but move slowly.

Here Mary showed a natural laugh, but still created angles, using the palm tree as a prop
