Honestly, I do not think the best photos are posed photos. The best photos are often the candid ones. Unfortunately, one can’t really control those. See some of my fav ones here among winners of the contests. However, the common ones that usually happen in most weddings include “somebody tearing up” and/or “somebody laughing uncontrollably”. Those photos are priceless. Most of the times, it does not matter what the pose is (just don’t look directly into the camera), as long as the photographer really takes advantage of the backdrop, the colors, the lightings, and the angles, the photo would turn out to be awesome.

This isn’t bridal, but the poses are good

Some good bridal ones in here

What kind of dress do you have? A lot is going to depend on the material, location (I’m assuming Mexico? Beach? Or no beach? Or are you doing this in Texas before hand… It is almost bluebonnet season ๐Ÿ™‚ But really, in Dallas there are a LOT of awesome opportunities for SWEET bridal portraits. Basically, any style of portrait could be done in Dallas.

 

there’s the more posey posey look. More stylized

or more full of movement

If you have Attitude, don’t be afraid to show it. DSC_4409

 

And here’s a lot of good and bad of a bridal portrait search on flickr

Stacey Reeves in Dallas has a lot of great inspiration on her blog for you as well.

 

If you give more information on what exactly you want to get out of your portrait, it will help find inspiration to fit what you’re looking for. In the end, you can never really go wrong letting your inner child out and skipping and twirling around in your dress. (like in the 2nd picture) It get’s you to laugh for real because you feel silly, if puts movement into you and your dress, and it helps you loosen up ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t be afraid to interact with what’s around you. Trees, tables, sand, dirt, buildings, etc… ๐Ÿ™‚
