Our non-formal portraits are some of our couples’ favorite images. 

Here are the five things that will make an image an unconventional portrait, and any one of them will do it:

Unusual posing (usually subjects on different planes or levels);

  • Cropping part of the bride or groom’s head out;
  • At least one person turned backwards;
  • Intentionally tilted horizons (in film and cinema that’s called going Deutsche);
  • Objects obscuring the image (like a veil).

All of these things are done for a purpose, and the unconventional couple’s portraits are often our favorites from a wedding.

When you work with Focus Photography, you’ll get images that focus on the romance and connection of a wedding day. You’ll get contemporary images not bound by traditional rules. And you’ll get portraits that have more of a magazine editorial feel.
