Q. Shades of White! Bright white, cream, ivory, light taupe, scant grey -- there are so many shades of wedding dresses today. Which shade of white should a bride choose for best outdoor wedding pictures?
A. For professional photographers the answer is easy -- whichever shade you love the most. For inexperienced photographers, best to stay away from bright white, which is extremely reflective (especially in the sun) and runs the risk of appearing "blown out" and missing the detail of your wedding dress. Imagine the richness of this Spanish bride's dress that would have been lost had I not exposed properly!
Q. Any tips on how the bride and groom should pose for the camera?
A. I always ask the couple to relax, lean in towards each other when facing the camera, and follow my lead for any posture corrections that will take the shot from good to amazing. And sometimes I catch them off guard in a private pose of their own!
