We are doing fairly simple E-pics since we aren’t using them for much & to save money for a great photojournalist on our wedding day. My friend who is a photojournalism major will be taking the E-pics. On our wedding day, we will have a few hours after our brunch reception for pictures of us together.
My photographer is wonderful, but her style is very photojournalistic and unobtrusive. Since we’re taking more portrait style photos after reception, I wanted to collect examples to show her what we want. That way, she knows we want some more artistic portraits instead of all candid photography.
So share some wedding day portraits of brides and grooms!! Thanks bees!

Hey, we were going to do this too!
Don’t be afraid to use people’s engagement pics as your inspirations too. Just imagine them in ‘weddingy’ clothes! Their stances, locations and expressions are more what you’re interested in anyway. 🙂

Hello, congrats on finding a photographer!
When working with a client, I actually avoid having them pose too much. The best and most memorable photos are the ones that are created when the couple is just talking, laughing, and snuggling. Since your photographer is good at the journalistic approach, then she should be able to capture your moments.
A few suggested poses:
Looking at eachother, holding hands.
Snuggled up on a set of stairs
In an open field, wide pan shoot

I would make sure that you have at least a few full body, forward-facing shots. I notice that in some people’s more photojournalistic engagement photos (or at least the ones that they share with others), there are few pictures that really document how the couple looks without crazy angles, hidden faces, out-of-focus bodies, etc. Along with all the amazing candid photos you’ll get, it might be nice to have some more standard poses to look back on years down the road.

Thanks for the suggestions! Does anyone want to share pictures they have, either from their own wedding or inspiration pics?
