wedding posing guide – depth of field for bride and groom

or the other way

Another great set of shots that I always do is the depth of field with the bride and groom. It is a variation of the line up depth of field idea and it works every time. Very simple concept, you get the bride and groom about 5-10 meters away from each other and shoot with a telephoto lens, first focusing on the bride and on the groom second. Ask them to look at you and look at each other. Make sure you compose the shot to make sense as per the images below. I do this all the time and the great thins about it is it never fails to impress.

I would recommend doing it in the shade and make sure there is no direct light contrast to interfere.

Whoever is on the foreground, needs to stand in profile as it looks better this way. After few weddings this should become a reflex.

As a word of advice, do not panic if you are doing this over and over again. Just make sure you get at each wedding one or 2 ideas which are specific for the couple personalities and it should be fine. You are not expected to invent every day, and as any business is also about the style of your product.
