A wedding photographer’s tips for getting amazing couple portraits

With Kent wedding photographer Benjamin Toms

When I publish a real wedding on the English Wedding Blog I always try to begin the feature with a few key images: a shot of the bride, some gorgeous detail I’ve fallen in love with, and my favourite couple portrait. The combination of these types of images tends to capture the spirit of the day and show off the best photography as well.

Beautiful wedding photography advice and tips by Benjamin Toms, Kent (4)

Couple portraits especially appeal to me. They don’t have to be posed or formal (and there’s nothing I avoid more than a ‘cake cutting’ shot for the blog!) but I really do love those romantic images: a forehead kiss or a wedding day hug can melt my heart in seconds.

I often hear couples say they worried about portraits – if you’re nervous of having your photo taken then I promise you’re not alone… and all you need is a great wedding photographer to make you feel at ease. You’ll be thrilled with the results, I promise!
