Is Posed A Bad Word?

Groomsmen at Chaminade Resort and SpaIt sometimes gets that reaction, although “overly-posed” would certainly deserve that response.

The way Danny interprets posing is the process of helping people find comfortable and natural body positioning, along with a flattering camera angle and proper relationship to the available light. For multiple subjects, achieving a degree of intimacy while maintaining each subject’s need for personal space (which varies with gender and culture) is also a factor. With experience, this can be achieved fairly quickly, making it much easier to get natural expressions and a variety of spontaneous interactions that are free of awkward defects.

Many of Danny’s clients create a “favorites folder” prior to the wedding with shots they like, and it’s Danny’s pleasure to re-create those compositions (poses) for you on your wedding day.
