So what are the 3 Tips to Dreamy Wedding Poses on Your Wedding Day?
We have to say that we LOVE natural and dreamy-looking wedding portraits. When browsing through our photography blog you will find many examples of candid wedding pictures, full of intimacy and raw emotions. In our studio this is the foundation of our candid wedding photography style.
So what makes an amazing wedding portrait? Are there any recipes that guaranty those authentic and dreamy wedding poses – we think so.
Over ten years of shooting hundreds weddings in Toronto we came to the conclusion that there are five key elements that make great wedding poses.
We love dynamic shots filled with energy and movement. Whether it’s walking, playing together or showing off your beautiful wedding dress. Your movement during your wedding photo-shoot will create more candid and natural-looking photos.
Showing movement is also one of the best ways to forget that you are in front of the camera, which can be intimidating for some. It removes any insecurities and thoughts what you should be doing to look natural.
We often hear our clients asking us where do I put my hands, where do I look, how should I stand? And movement removes all nervousness and takes the edge off, allowing to be more effortless and authentic.
Forget that there’s someone watching you and just have fun with your partner. You’ll gain confidence and be your best self. In the end, this is what your wedding pictures are all about!
Your level of energy is another key element of any successful photo session. Cameras are these little pesky boxes that can pick up on your energy and translate it into either ordinary photos or some of the most breathtaking wedding pictures you can create.
We love when our clients are full of energy and creative ideas during the photo-shoot. Don’t be afraid to try different ideas and be little silly with each other.
This element is repeated over and over again, but we think it cannot be overstated: a great photograph makes the wedding couple feel something. In other words, a wedding photograph doesn’t just help our couples remember what a moment looked like – it should help them remember what a moment FELT like.
So what is our secret to making wedding pictures more emotional? We think it is about slowing down, being present in the moment and absorbing the excitement of the wedding day.
A wedding is an ultimate highlight of anyone’s life. Don’t be afraid to pause, relax and absorb all the joy of it. As you radiate happiness, it will be front and center in your wedding poses and actually allow you to feel what’s going on around you.
As wedding photographers we will be able to pick up on your excitement, happiness and love, and it’s only going to enhance your wedding pictures and make them more remarkable.

Our wedding photography is build around these simple techniques and from our experience movement, energy and emotions when combined always create those dreamy wedding photos everyone wants.
