Time to Relax and be Aware of your Body Language

Natural looking photos are gorgeous and the key to achieving them is to not over-think your poses (we will do that for you so you don’t have too). Here are a few tips to help you look relaxed and stunning in your engagement photos:

  • Adjust your posture: Slightly arching your back whether you are standing or sitting will help you look more confident.
  • Stand with your hips at a 45 degree angle turned away from the camera.
  • Allow your weight to primarily rest on the back foot.
  • The front leg can be crossed in front with the foot pointed towards the camera and bend your knee slightly.
  • Pull your shoulders up then let them relax down and back.
  • Fill your cheeks with air (so they look like a puffer fish), then blow it letting your lips go free and SMILE thinking about how amazing your wedding day is!
  • MOST IMPORTANT- Allow yourselves to be in love! Be playful, romantic and cuddle with each other.

Your body language speaks volumes. A genuine smile will make you look GORGEOUS. If you’re nervous let it out through laughter and giggles, not only does if feel good to let nervousness out via giggles it also looks cute in photos.

We are a North Georgia husband + wife wedding photography + film team located in Dahlonega Georgia, but we delightfully serve all of Georgia with down home southern charm, class + style. Our studio is located in Dahlonega, GA and we love to have clients in for a “Wine + Cheese” consultation, however if the drive through the mountains is a bit far, we also do consultations via Skype. We are not only a North Georgia husband + wife photography team; my husband and I have traveled to several beautiful cities capturing weddings (San Antonio, Texas; Watertown, Wisconsin; Miami, Florida; just to name a few). Our life goes beyond photography as well, we both love traveling, woodworking, hiking, biking, camping and time with family + friends. We limit our weddings to 30 per year to ensure we balance work and adventure. Our goal is to approach each wedding from our unique perspective and to capture moments of pure love + joy. Whether we are shooting in North Georgia, Florida, or beyond, our cameras are an extension of our hearts and souls.
