Selecting A Wedding Bouquet For Photography

Selecting A Wedding Bouquet For Photography

Say what? Selecting a wedding bouquet for photography? Why? You may be thinking that as long I find the flowers that I like, in the colors that I want, then what more could there be to selecting a wedding bouquet? A talenteted florist friend of mine from Blossom Basket has recently wrote an interesting article about the challenges of photographing certain styles of wedding bouquets based upon an observation that I made to her a few months ago. She has taken the time to pull together a few photos of the two different styles of bouquets in question to illustrate the differences. The two styles are, Handtied vs Cascading. Although both styles make for gorgeous wedding bouquets, the Cascading style bouquet limits how the bride can hold or orient them. This in turn limits the creative opportunities in which we photographers can photograph them. The Cascade style bouquet works best with more traditional or formal poses. The Handtied bouquet works well with so many more poses both traditional and casual. Additionally, the Cascading style bouquets tend to weigh more than the Handtied ones. I’ve heard more than one bride mention how holding her bouquet wore out her arm. Anyway, pop over and take a look at Brittany’s article: Cascade vs. Handtied
