My daughter is a full foot and a half shorter than her BF. Every time we take pictures of them both standing, the camera has to be turned and you just barely get their both heads in the picture! Now I'm thinking ahead to their wedding ... most formals are taken with both of them standing, dancing, and whatnot. So, how does a photographer get good formal pictures of them?

My husband's cousin is 5 feet tall, just barely and her husband is over 6 feet tall. They had a very nice wedding and have tons of nice pictures from it, with both of their heads in the picture at the same time icon_biggrin.gif So don't worry, it's possible.

Don't worry about the pics. My DH is more than a foot taller than me. A good photographer is use to that and can work around it. I use only one photographer now for all of our family pics. He's fabulous and I don't look like I'm trying to reach my DH's armpits with heels on. icon_lol.gif

I love wedding shots when the camera is looking down on the couple and the couple is looking up to the camera - like the photographer is standing on a balcony or something. I think those are so cool! There's one idea!

Jodie, that's a cool photo, but hardly a wedding formal pose! I do expect the photographer to do one with him picking her up, though.

Mkolmar, are there any wedding photos of you on line anywhere?

Easy, just press the shoot button. =]

Here are some pictures that might help.
