I find that Men are a little easier to pose than women in general.  Mainly because most men do not have all the components that women have going on such as a dress, hair, makeup and heels as well as stress.  (That is changing and shifting though).

When it’s time to get dressed, we will position you in the best light (preferably next to a window to allow some beautiful side light to come sweeping in). Then you will proceed to putting your cuff links, tie, shoes, and jacket on, etc.

Groom Portraits are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I will take a few moments and photograph portraits in the room you are getting ready in or a beautiful spot in the vicinity of the reception or church.  Here you will be guided with some gentle hints and suggestions. The main thing is to make sure you have great body posture and are feeling comfortable. A well fitted suit, comfortable shoes, etc. go a long way.  When you are uncomfortable it shows, especially in photographs.  So make sure you like and are feeling good in what you are wearing.


After we get some indoor portraits we will go to a pre-decided location to take a few additional portraits of the groom with his groomsmen. This is typically at the place with the best architecture and lighting. Confidence is what makes a great grooms photograph as well as a good sense of humor. Portraits can be really fun. So, cracking up and making a few jokes is always encouraged. I am not always looking for a smile. I love taking serious photos and making sure we are not faking moments. Alternating with your hands in and out of your pockets is a great way to look more natural. For your legs - make sure to relax and always put more weight on one leg than the other. We want the pictures to look effortless and not stiff.
