Weddings are a special moment for a couple that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. For a photographer, they present an opportunity to capture absolutely unique romance and tension that you’d never be able to photograph anywhere else.
It’s no secret that the key to good photography is balancing the seemingly endless array of options, styles, techniques, settings and so on.
When you're photographing a bride, there's a lot to encompass: you've got a beautiful background, ideally, but you want nearly all the focus in the photos to be on the bride herself.
Nailing the perfect shot doesn't always have to involve endless posing or complicated lighting. Sometimes you can capture a magical photo just by thinking outside the box and using an everyday item in an unexpected way.
As both a fashion and portrait photographer, I photograph a wide variety of posing styles. I photograph models in back-breaking avant garde positions and portrait clients who would prefer to remain seated, thank you very much (not that I let them). And it’s my job to coach them all.
Years ago when I started my own studio, I didn’t have the space I had in previous studios. I thought I would give backdrops a try to give myself variety. After purchasing an inexpensive one, I asked a friend to pose for me as a test run.
There is a distinct art to photographing men, one that I would even say has become a passion of mine. This is most likely because of my love for men’s fashion and styling, but also because I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like on wedding days because as the lead photographer I’m primarily with the bride.
When you work as a photographer, you're often dealing with subjects who aren't professional models. This puts more responsibility on you to coax good poses out of the subject. Today, I'd like to give you some useful tips for doing this when your subject is a man, or someone who wants to portray a masculine image.
A decade ago, I was fairly new to the professional world of photography. While I didn’t know much, using flash was something I knew I didn’t want to do.
Engagement Photos is an amazing way to break the ice and connect with couples. It gives the couple an opportunity to experience working with you before the wedding day.
