Weddings are about memorable moments, each moment planned intricately and with hope for a happy life with happy memories. Every couple wishes to look their very best on their big day. For a plus-size bride, being conscious is obvious. And as every bride, there is a desire to look stunning. As an amateur photographer weddings will bring forth plentiful of photo-shooting opportunities. Challenges for every wedding will be unique. It will be your responsibility as a photographer to photo-shoot the plus-size bride with care and have some stunning clicks. Here are a few tips, which could help you for the big day:

Tips to photograph plus-size Brides


1. High viewpoint

Good composition can get you some perfect clicks. A viewpoint has dramatic effects when you shoot. As you try and capture your plus-size subject, it could help trying and photo-shooting from a high viewpoint. This will help minimize the size of the subject.

2. Lens usage

When the wedding is finalized and you begin planning for the big day. Be prepared to make a checklist of the camera gear to be carried for the day. A telephoto lens usage could be considered. These lenses affect the look of the subject; also help to compress your subjects.

3. Posing

Weddings and requesting poses during the photo-shoot are obvious. Follow your instincts; every couple will have their own story and personality. Request poses which bring out their personality. You could request poses where the bride looks up, which could ease out the double-chin effect. Make sure that the bride is not slouching. A few basics could help in making your subject look leaner and get you some nice clicks.

4. Think creative

Every story needs a new approach whilst photo-shooting. Be creative, explore the terrain, and make the best usage of trees, pillars, and hallways. Find out what will compliment the bride and go ahead and click your shots.

5. Angles and lighting

Try various angles during the photo-shoot. You could avoid lower angels. You could request the subject to look towards the camera by rotating about 45 degrees. This could give you a range of clicks. Also try short lighting, you will find that the face of your subject looks slimmer and the effects worth exploring.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
