Every couple dreams of a spectacular wedding album. That begins by shooting the right pictures in wedding poses that work for you. Let's see how this is done.

Hitched & Clicked

The wedding affair gets over in a matter of a few days but the memories from it stay alive for a lifetime, especially through numerous photos and videos. Many of those pictures can be similar because you couldn’t think of a different pose every time. One with the wedding lehenga, one while getting makeup done, a few with the groom and then you start repeating wedding poses.

Here are some inspirations for wedding poses to get every click picture-perfect.

1. Work on your problem areas

Since no one’s face is perfectly symmetrical, you’ll always find one side of your face slightly better. Stand in front of a mirror or take selfies to figure out your flattering angles. Then, use this knowledge it to your advantage during your wedding poses. Also, you may have great poses that usually work for you, but they might not look as good with the complete bridal attire.

7. Set up your scene, in advance

Only professional models can wing it with wedding poses, in a scene straight from the stars. For everyone else, nailing wedding poses begins from mapping out what you wish to capture on the screen. You need to know your location, the kind of light and effects you're trying to achieve in the shot. You don't want an epic saga of love cut short by a stone on the path.

8. Plan and set your scene around the sun

Next, check the lighting and see if it is appropriate for the effect you'd like to capture with your wedding poses. It could a natural light day shot (which you can only grab early morning or a room scene (which would work better during the night). This will also streamline your expenses for the shoot.

Pro Tips:

  1. Brides, when going in for a makeup trial, ensure that you see the effect of an SPF-free foundation and concealer. We know that as a trend, most of these products come with SPF but in pictures with a camera flash, it can make you look like a ghost. That's why have a trial with SPF-free products.
  2. Grooms, you may not be using a lot of beauty products in your daily life, but on one of the biggest day of your lives, you should take special care for grooming. Simply washing your face won't be enough. To appear even-toned in the wedding pictures, a light layer of compact should do the trick.
  3. The colours that you wear will reflect on your skin. For someone with a cool undertone, a blue lehenga will bring out an unmatched grace but the very same lehenga would not suit a person with a warm undertone. Therefore, choose the colours of your outfits, as well as, your wedding theme accordingly.
  4. Any discomfort you might have with your ensemble is sure to show up on your face. Right from a comfortable hairstyle to pinning everything right, soft base fabric to supportive bridal shoes, everything has to be on-point for your smile to be just perfect in all your wedding pictures.
  5. We know you're worried about keeping your makeup intact but that is no reason to dehydrate yourself. Keep taking juices, supplements and water to keep your energy levels.

Save your inspirations so that you don’t end up googling wedding poses in the middle of your photoshoot. Get creative with the wedding décor, use them as props and come up with unique ideas that you can even ask your wedding videographer to include your wedding movie. With that being said, spare some time from posing to have fun dancing to the tunes of wedding songs.
