I’ve been trying to think of little things that I point out during the wedding day that could be helpful to post on the blog. So while it’s not rocket science to hold the bouquet of flowers correctly, I might as well point it out because I do at 99% of the weddings we shoot.
Step 1: Commandeer Bouquet.
Step 2: Hold bouquet with both hands
Step 3: Bring the bouquet down. Almost everyone naturally holds it too high.
See how nice it looks at this height? And, if you leave a little space between your body and your elbows, it has a slimming effect:
Step 4: Pretend that you’re resting your forearms on your hips. That’s the right height. See here:
Step 5: Point the flowers out just slightly, so that when I’m taking photos, I see a bit of the top of them, not just the side.
Step 6: Stop worrying that you’re holding them wrong, because it doesn’t really matter. Now laugh. You smiling is all that anyone cares about seeing.
