If you’re worried about making your bridal poses come out natural, here are some pointers to keep in mind. First is to pick a photographer whose style you like and who you can feel comfortable with! When choosing a wedding photographer, make sure you do enough research to know their aesthetic matches what you have in mind. Next, try to meet them in person or speak over a video call and trust that first vibe. If you are vibing with the vendor, there are chances that you will feel natural with them, which will eventually reflect in the pictures. Second, be confident and stick to your natural style. You don’t have to smile showing off your teeth, if a wide smile with closed mouth is more comfortable. Third, prepare a short list of what types of poses you want so there’s no end-moment preparations involved. Lastly, designate enough time to the photographer so he is able to get the shot perfectly. You can’t rush creativity. Plan in advance how much time you will be able to take out for your bridal portraits.
