Other Reasons to Hire a Pro Photographer for your City Hall Wedding
While it is true that your friend or relative who is “really good with a camera” may be able
to take high-quality images that are in focus, chances are they won’t know how to properly pose
the couple. This is where most amateur wedding photographers fall short. They probably will not
come up with fun and unique poses. More importantly, they do not know how to
make the bride look her best. Brides come in all shapes and sizes, and each one
deserves a professional city hall wedding photographer who knows how to accentuate
the good parts and hide the less-than-perfect aspects of the bride’s look. This is not
something that just anyone can do without training or experience. A professional wedding photographer can take one look at the couple and know exactly how to handle the posing.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want to make
sure that you have beautiful photos to remember it by. That’s why it’s important to hire a
professional city hall wedding photographer who knows how to pose you and your
spouse for stunning photos. In addition, A professional photographer will have the experience and skills to capture all of the special moments of your day, including the ceremony, the vows, and the first kiss.
Here are some tips for posing for city hall wedding photos:
- Both the Bride and Groom should stand up straight and tall.
- Shoulders should be relaxed and your arms hanging naturally, depending upon the instruction from your city hall wedding photographer
- Smiling is great, a genuine smile will make you look happy and radiant
- When prompted by the photographer, look directly into to each others eyes, this will create a connection between both you that is visible in the photos.
