Do the looking down routine.
You don’t have to take a look at the camera all the time when you are posing in front of your professional wedding photographer. Even if you have the notion that you need to be looking at the camera all the time, it doesn’t always have to be that way at all at some point or so. As a matter of fact, having a few shots wherein you aren’t looking directly at the camera can drum up photos that make you look mysterious and mesmerizing. This is something that you should try to tap into one way or the other. More often than not, your wedding photographer will try to capture these types of photos for you anyway so you might as well make sure that you get to take charge and do a few shots like this on your own. Focus more on the emotion of the moment. Don’t focus too much on the way you look. Although of course, you need to have that at the back of your mind all of the time, it doesn’t always have to be all about that at all. Play things up and switch things up a bit and you will soon see the value of injecting variety in the photos that are captured during the day of your wedding.
Getting ready shots.
Get the getting ready shots before the wedding taken into account. There is something about photos of the bride getting ready that sort of tells a story that at some point or so tends to bring the wedding photo album altogether. This is the type of thing that you should be aiming to achieve as much as you possibly can. It doesn’t have to take that long at all but the truth of the matter is that it is somewhat a bit of a prerequisite when wedding photos are being taken. There is a certain poetry to the aspect of the bride getting ready. It tends to make the bride look regal and human at the same time. This is something that is precious and something that you can definitely go ahead and look forward to as the recipient of your photographer’s major efforts in capturing the wedding photos from behind his camera.
You can be goofy.
Go with photos that show off your personality. It is what natural wedding photography is all about, after all. You don’t have to look serious and all posey in your photos all the time. It’s actually recommended for you to play around and even goof around with the rest of your entourage when you are posing for the camera. If natural is what you are going for, then personality is something that you should have in the photos no matter what happens.
The almost kissing shots.
This is something that you should try to go ahead and inject in the natural wedding photography shoot as much as possible. It looks natural and romantic.
The element of touch can be very powerful in natural wedding photography. Make sure that the group shots are always close to each other. There should be a bridge to the physical gaps in the photos that are being taken.
