Pantone: Colour Of The Year

Pantone have chosen their colour of the year, and it's Radiant Orchid.

Whilst a short dress in the colour looks fabulous, I'm not sure that a full bridal dress would. Nor a host of bridesmaids wearing it for that matter. But then, I'm not a fan of bridesmaids in the exact same outfit anyway! If you do want to be on trend though... why not have your bridesmaids wearing a few of the colours, or even teaming the colours with either each other or white. Perfect for a spring/summer wedding! Here is the Pantone Spring Colour Report.

Amna Hakim

I just looked through Amna Hakim's blog and went through all the work she has posted on there and her shots are consistently good, and she clearly knows her angles. I'm posting these photos for again references to good-non-cornfest-posing. (Toronto based)

Couple Poses

For my, almost upon us, wedding, there is NO WAY I'm having awkward shots with my husband where he's putting his hand on my shoulder etc. This is one of my Nikaah photos:


it's one of the few I love because it was taken in the moment of a laugh we shared. Before this I had only conversed with him maybe 3 times, and when I say conversed, that's being generous, I'm socially inept.

I DID have the poses with the hand on chin and hand on shoulder shots taken, and I abhor them.

So here are a few shots I've found of couples from various photog sites that I think are much better alternatives. I will link the sites later, I didn't record where they were from so just bear with me.

If you've got any shots you adore, then just leave a link in the comments and I will include them in another post.
