How to look your best in photos
Posing is an art. But understandably it's an art that a lot of couples are nervous about, and sadly that a lot of wedding photographers don't know how to direct correctly.
So if you happen to have a photographer who doesn't know how to pose you with expertise and intention, what are a few things you should remember?
Here are a few foundational pointers....
1. Imaginary String
First, you want to ensure that your spine is straight, but NOT stiff and unnatural. I often ask my couples to act as if there is a string on the back/top of their head pull up. Have a straight spine and natural curve in you lumbar (lower back).
Push your shoulders 1 inch back. This will further bring confidence and beauty in your pose.
3. Weight Distribution
You want your weight distribution to be uneven or else your pose will look unnatural. There are two ways to do this. Either cross one leg over the other or put more weight on your back leg. Look at the photo below. Each of these techniques were used on this photo of Hunter.
