STOP Using Awkward And Cliché Posing – These Tips Will Make Your Clients Adore You

When I first took the plunge and decided to include engagement and wedding photography into my repertoire, I was scared breathless. I was used to photographing children and suddenly people wanted me to take portraits of them, grown-ups, as well. I’ve heard people say “well, a portrait is a portrait” but that’s just so far from the truth. Certain technical things (camera settings etc.) may be the same, but it’s a completely different thing to photograph kids than to photograph adults, especially couples.
