Posing is one of the most important aspects of wedding photography. You can have all of the lighting, camera, and post-production knowledge in the world but still end up with unhappy clients if you fail to make them look beautiful, comfortable, and happy. The following list of poses isn’t comprehensive; and not all of the poses will work for all of your couples. However, it is a good starting point from which you should make adjustments to compliment your couples’ features and accommodate their style preferences.

Our Photographer for this week is Katarina StefanoviÄ‡ whose goal is to use photography as â€˜prima materiaâ€™, a base, and through editing create a fusion of reality and vision.
According to Katarina : ” I am not a photo reporter, so I donâ€™t feel obligated to honour every detail. What Iâ€™m trying to achieve is to emphasize the whole potential of a shot, creating a sight that I’d like if existed.. And since itâ€™s impossible in real life, I do it in virtual My work is maybe more similar to â€˜photo-paintingâ€™ than photography.”
After our call for Photographer of the week submissions, we received many great entries and we are glad to feature Vitaly Geyman for this week.
His photography comes from a multidisciplinary perspective. It conveys his intimate connection with nature and the power of its beauty.Â Vitalyâ€™s soulful, dreamlike fine art photography has also been greatly influenced by the work of John Wimberley, a well known photographer who has a great collection of B&W photography, with over 50 exhibitions.
Enjoy 10 of his selected pictures and don’t forget to visit his website for more of his work.
