babykoala:  If you have an expereinced photographer then I wouldn’t be worried. That is their job, they went to school for it and have trained for it, so I am sure they are more than capable to work in situtations like this. And the last thing you are going to worry about is her carrying around a stool, you are going to be so wraped up in excitement that day.

Have you done enagement photos with her? That would be a good way to see what angles you like and don’t like and see how she does.

She has probably shot her fair share of tall couples, so I wouldn’t worry too much unless she brings it up as an issue.  I agree with PP that you should do an engagement session to get a feel for how she will shoot you, and that way you’ll have time to discuss what you’d like to do differently for the wedding (if anything).  You could also ask to see one of her photo galleries from a wedding with a tall bride or groom.

I’m a 5’2″ photographer and I shoot tall couples all the time. Granted, I’m primarily a beach wedding photographer, so I have the luxury of dunes and varying heights in nature to get me higher than my couples. I do bring along a foldable stool that I use occasionally, but not always. Then again, I’m a natural shooter and so a lot of my work is capturing my couples interacting with each other (with my guidance) and so you’d be surprised how little the height matters. It’s more of a struggle when you have a REALLY tall groom and a TINY bride – because you can’t do much to make either of them taller or shorter.

babykoala:  I would assume that most female photographers are shorter than a lot of the grooms. I haven’t heard of anyone complaining about this so I’d guess it’s not really an issue.

My photographer was quite a bit shorter than my husband and me. She just climbed all over stuff to get good pictures! I wouldn’t worry about it.
