Introduction to Photographing the Bride


When it comes to Photographing the Bride vs. the Groom, there is more to talk about in terms of posing, lighting, and even interaction. There is a certain level of complexity that comes with posing the female figure and discussing the lighting that will compliment that posing, but it makes for a fun artistic challenge. This comprehensive course will be covering everything you need to know about how to create incredible wedding day imagery from:

  • Straightforward Posing for the Bride and Bridesmaids
  • Learning how to light scenes with highly portable lights and setups
  • Behind-the-scenes footage of our stylized Bride Prep & Portrait shoot
  • Post producing for an amazing end product

You can follow along with us with downloadable Powerpoint slides located in the right-hand column where we will also be providing exercise files and select presets when applicable.


The third portion of our Wedding Workshop series, Photographing the Bride, will teach photographers how to create flattering portraits and artistic journalistic images during Bride Prep involving the bridesmaids and VIP members of the family. In Chapter One we will be covering our recommended gear list for all photo and lighting needs and also discuss the general goals we set prior to arriving at our shoot.
