Even though wedding portraits are posed… no one wants portraits that LOOK posed. The more candid and authentic your portraits look the BETTER.

Now there are tons of ways to ensure this… but just in case you have a photographer who doesn’t know what he’s doing, here’s one of the MAIN tips you can do.

I call it the NOSE X-FACTOR.

So what is it? 

Imagine you have an imaginary line coming out of the tip of your nose and eyes.

When posing with your fiance you always want those imaginary lines crossing making an X. Meaning you never want to look directly in the eyes of each other for the portrait. Why? 

It looks cheesy and fake.

So Instead of having my couples look at each other in the eyes, I’ll have one of them turn their chin slightly to the side and down, and drop their eyes down. This give the portrait a more CANDID and AUTHENTIC touch.

Here are a few examples:

 

Gives the portrait a sense of candid. As if I caught them in a real beautiful moment

I hope you enjoyed this!

Be sure to look out for tomorrow’s email where I give you your 3rd gift :).
