LEARN TO BALANCE SPONTANEITY WITH IDEALIZATION TO CREATE NATURAL, FLATTERING POSES
Posing is one of the most important tools used by professional photographers to optimize the appearance of their subjects.

With these techniques, you'll make everyone look their bestƒ?ø????and capture more of the emotion and energy of the wedding day.
