POSING: 

The CHEST: ... pose that places the torso at an angle to the camera emphasizes the shape of the chest and... enhances the form-revealing shadows on the cleavage... with the chest lifted and shoulders dropped, is also critical to a flattering rendition.

The WAIST and STOMACH: Separating the arms from the torso helps to slim the waist. In seated poses, a very upright posture (almost to the point of arching the back) will help to flatten the stomach area...
The LEGS: Although most brides wear full-length gowns.. (posing is important)...  (ASK) the bride to put her weight on her back foot shifts the body slightly away from the camera for a more flattering appearance... Having her slightly bend her front knee will also help to create a nice line on the lower part of the gown.

The HIPS and THIGHS: (Often in wedding gowns.. it will naturally be concealed). With a gown that is fitted through the hips and thighs, pose her hips at an angle to the camera and away from the main light. In a seated pose, have the bride shift her weight onto one hip so that more of her rear is turned away from the camera.
The FEET: (DO NOT have) pictures of feet with the toes pointed straight at the camera tend to look distorted. (Pose) the feet at an angle to the camera—better yet, place them at two different angles to the camera. A good rule of thumb is to ensure that at least one foot is turned enough that the heel is shown. 

We work with MODELS and ACTRESSES on their POSES.  It was very NICE that Ms. Alberta Globe, Elena Denning, showed us how to POSE at ISSUE 1: LesAttrait.

POSING is IMPORTANT at ANY EVENT.

Our Photographers works with you to HIGHLIGHT YOU.

We treat our Wedding, Engagement and SPECIAL OCCASION photo-shoot , just like a MODEL PHOTO-SHOOT. We work with you on the POSES to SHOW CASE YOU. We work together to have a SHOOTING LIST  to ensure that VIP have their pictures.  We also to Photo-journalist style photography to capture the candid moments. 

POSING BASIC: 

The FACE: The most flattering facial view depends on the bride, the lighting, and the mood (that is why we are here)... The subject’s nose is pointed at the camera.... (but)  it may not be well suited to brides with rounder faces. In the three-quarters view ... the subject’s face is angled ... This is a flattering, slimming view for most faces... be sure not to turn the head so far that the tip of the nose extends past
the line of the cheek or that the bridge of the nose obscures the far eye. In the profile view... turn the bride’s face so that the far eye, eyebrow, and eyelashes are obscured.

The SHOULDER: The bride’s shoulders should usually be turned at an angle to the camera.... 

The HEAD: Tilting the head slightly produces diagonal lines that can help a pose feel more dynamic... tilt the bride’s head in the direction that most flatters her. 

CHIN HEIGHT: A medium chin height is desirable... 

The EYES: ...  are the most important part of the face... Typically, eyes look best when the eyelids border the iris. Turning the face slightly
away from the camera and directing the bride’s eyes back toward the camera reveals more of the white of the eye, making her eyes look larger. 

The ARMS: The bride’s arms should be separated at least slightly from her waist... (creating) a space that slims the appearance of her upper body...  a triangular base for the composition, leading the viewer’s eye up to her face... bending the elbows ... help direct the viewer... to the bride’s face.

The HANDS: Keep the hands at an angle to the lens to avoid distorting their size and shape.... the outer edge of the hand produces a more appealing look... the hands... should be at different heights ...  This creates a diagonal line that makes... the pose more dynamic.
The WRIST: Bending the wrists slightly by lifting the hand (not allowing it to flop down) creates an appealing curve that is particularly flattering...
The FINGERS: Fingers look best when separated slightly. This gives them form and definition... 

The PROPS: (Have) a prop to hold or something to rest upon. When photographing the bride holding her bouquet, have her grasp it gently, or opt to hid her hands behind the bouquet. When photographing the bride’s rings, give her something to rest her

hands upon (her lap, the back of a chair, etc.)...
