    Paris Photographer tips : How to pose ?


    The true photojournalist is waiting for the moment but time goes fast and there is tips to produce a better picture. I move to find the best camera angle and when I find the best composition I ask the couples to standby.


    Photoshoot Paris pose for bride and groom


  • Pose with your body. Turn your body, hip and shoulder slightly away from the photographer to look thiner. For the groom we want broader shoulder so he has to face the photographer.
  • Pose with arms. Move your arm away from your body. Make a angle with your arm in order to look thiner. Put your hand on your hip, in a pocket for the groom or hold your fingers together lightly. Then you’ll appear relaxed and happy.
  • Pose with your back. Stand straight, pride and confident as a ballerina and roll the shoulders back.
  • Pose with your hand. Play with your hands. Put one hand in your pocket, or on your hip, or take your chin on your hand. Hold on to something like bridal bouquet or your partner. Brides, you can use your hands to touch your face or hair or your ring . Groom, you can put a hand in your pocket or hold onto your jacket with one hand.
  • Pose with waist. Lean forward from the waist
  • Pose with your face. Smile :). Tilt the head towards the camera and lifts the chin to avoid double chins.
  • Pose with your closes. Wear close which fit your, enhances your shape and play with it.

  • The wedding day is known as one of the best days of a newlywed, during which capturing every special and happy memory is all-important. That’s why the wedding photographer in Paris with the videographer by his side has to frame the highlights and the best instants of the wedding day.

    When you hire your wedding photographer in Paris, you should punctiliously find a Paris wedding photographer with whom you will feel a real bond. Thanks to an exchange on mutual needs and expectation, your photographer will masterfully give an everlasting fame to your big day.

    Lise and Bernard made their wedding vows official in an intimate vibe at the city hall of Boulogne-Billancourt. Due to the current situation, there were only a few guests. Nonetheless, it was a great opportunity to capture all of the sparkling memories.



    How to choose a Paris wedding photographer ?


    To be sure that you are making the right decision in your choice of the best wedding photographer, make sure to look carefully at the wedding photographer’s portfolios.



    As a documentary wedding photographer specialized and working in Paris and its surroundings, RaccordFilm is well-informed of the most amazing places and monuments there. We perfectly know the paths and the lovely districts with their city halls. Moreover, we covered a few weddings in the most sumptuous hotels and palaces of the capital.

    During our recent achievements, we have captured the emotions and special moments of some couples in the City Hall of Boulogne-Billancourt, the City Hall of Neuilly-sur-Seine, the City Hall of Versailles, the City Hall of Suresnes, the City Hall of 5th Paris, and the City Hall of 15th Paris or the City Hall of 16th Paris.

    What is more, Paris wedding photographer perfectly master the wedding photo shoots ideas such as holding hands, kissing, laid back, awesome elopement photo booth for instance at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or on the bridge Alexandre III, with the Hotel des Invalides as a backdrop, and so many more.

    For a wedding photography to be a success, your Paris wedding photographer should know your personality and reproduce it on the wedding pictures while using his style and skills.

    Nowadays, it becomes unusual to rely on only one wedding photo style. In other words, fully posing pictures or on the contrary a wedding photo album made up entirely of pictures taken on the spot. At Raccordfilm, not only the professional wedding photographer will certainly capture the spontaneous emotions, but also guide the shooting requiring stage play and wedding portraits.

    Behind his lens, the paris wedding photographer is a real artist who is painting a canvas which is often romantic. While the bride and groom is probably busy, the professional photographer will be on the lookout for the emotions, the smiles and tears, the moments of bonding, and even the details of a scene or environment that you can relive in images once the celebration is over; which is called a candid wedding photography.

    Before choosing your Paris wedding photographer, you shouldn’t forget that trust is essential in the wedding photography business. So, it is a good idea to go meet him in person. As stated before, you can check his achievements through the documentary wedding photography and videography. Then, you can discuss about your dreaming project. Like that, you will quickly notice his professionalism. You will also see if there is a certain affinity with your professional photographer.

    You should also keep in mind that your wedding photographer is the one who will write and tell the fairy tale you are about to live. Thus, you should consider him as your ally or accomplice. It could help him with his work by allowing him to blend completely into the background and take unobtrusive professional wedding photographs.

    In order to do so, you can state your exact needs because your vision of your perfect elopement depends on the angle from which the professional wedding photographer will view his shoots.

    With the intention of choosing the one of the top wedding photographers, you should ask yourself the right questions. Such as:

    • An amazing civil marriage photos at the city hall or a wedding ceremony at the chapel.
    • Event photography for an entire day: from the pre-wedding photography to the exchange of wedding vows, the bride-to-be in a gown or the bridal portraits at the boudoir like in the most famous magazines in the world, the bride groom first dance, the sweet bouquet keepsake, the bride walking down the aisle, the bridesmaids, family portraits and senior portraits, or later to the cake or the toast.
    • A Wedding couple photography in the capital, in some specific places in Paris, near those splendid historical and cultural monuments
    • A photo session for a bachelorette or bachelor party.
    • A surprise marriage proposal photo-shoot
    • Engagement photography
