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.

Vikram Phadnis

Here's another designer whose collection I love. Vikram Phadnis incorporates a whole range of colours into his outfits without making them look like a trainwreck. Even if you were planning a mehndi and say you wanted to incorporate a few different colours, you could easily just use one of his outfits to see what colours compliment each other.

Rajdeep Ranawat

This is the Rajdeep Ranawat 2011 collection. I really like this collection because of the intricate floral embroidery on the pieces. The sheer churi pyjama effect also looks really pretty, I haven't seen many outfits like that.
