A Groom's guide to posing | Pro tips

Weddings are full of love and excitement, that’s why is always so fun to share the special occasion with so many friends and family.

“He wore a tailor's masterpiece of obsidian fabric so expensive that it would've been personally offended to have been referred to as a 'black suit'. It was a really nice black suit."

In this post, we will be detailing what poses we have our grooms do that make them feel born camera ready.

THE POWER & COMFORT STANCE

In this pose the groom stands straight facing the camera. The groom’s hands can be placed in 4 ways: Clasped in front of his hips, clasped behind his back, hands in his pocket and arms crossed. This pose allows the photographers and videographers to get the full details of what the groom is wearing that day and how it all looks together. In the pose, the groom can smile or keep a “blue steel” type of glare.

 

Pro tip: The groom can turn his head to either side allowing the photographers and videographers to get his good side.

TAKE A SEAT

In this pose we have the grooms sitting on a chair either putting on shoes or we catch them in deep thought. This pose acts more like a candid, a moment frozen in time. The groom can be leaned over putting on his socks and shoes or he can be sitting one leg crossed over the other.

 

Pro tip: The groom should avoid looking at the camera.

ADJUSTMENTS

For this pose we let our groom just get ready. We let him put on his bowtie, fix his cufflinks and put his jacket on. These are more candid and not super posed. We like our grooms to feel like we are documenting rather than directing.

 

Pro tip: Don’t look into the camera just act natural.

THE SILHOUETTE

This is our favorite pose. When looking at the final photo, viewers feel a sense of mystery, serenity and drama. The pose itself is very simple. We place our grooms in front of a large window. The groom can stand profile or completely straight towards the window. The groom’s hands can be placed naturally at his side or in his pockets.
