camera eye. As we all know, these poses are evergreen.

4) The Overhead Staircase Pose
The overhead staircase poses have a special charm to it, especially if shot on a spiral
staircase with a traditional touch. Close-ups, as well as wide shots, can be easily
captured depending upon the type of staircase. Brides may casually sit on the stair or
lean against the balusters. Evidently, a lovely stare at the camera eye or a soft gaze
away from the camera eye will work exceptionally well.
Also, the brides may untangle and spread their outfits aesthetically, to make the frame
even more fresh and neat. And, the wedding photographer can assist the bride
regarding the posture. Irrespective of the type or style of the bride’s outfits, staircase
portraits can create magic if curated carefully. These portraits have been making a
statement even before the beginning of experimental wedding photography and

Traditional Hindu temples have unique architectural elements such as stairs with or
without embellishments. The materials used in the construction of these holy
buildings are earthy and refreshing to be around. Hence, sit-down poses at the Temple
stairs are a perfect way to document the cultural as well as divine aspects of the Hindu
traditions through portraits of Malayali brides. Evidently, Kerala Kasavu sarees
feel like a breath of fresh air.
The solid white saree finished in golden borders beautifully blends with the temple
architecture. The bride may sit down on the stairs or at any comfortable corner in the
temple premises (allowed areas), neatly structuring the outfit. Semi-candids make a
good choice for attaining elegant bridal portraits at the temple premises. Added to
that, props such as flowers or traditional crockery can be used to make these Malayali
bride images more catchy.
