A Charming Pose in Suit

There are a variety of quirky poses for Christian grooms. Particularly, adjusting the tie
is a cool pose to try for grooms dressed up in suit attires. Our groom is holding his
chin with his fist. And, his other arm is supporting his elbow. Not only does this pose

spotlights his amazing suit outfit but also adds a dimension to the portrait. Likewise,
the groom can also act like he is buttoning up his vest or tux. In this portrait, our

3) The Lean-Against-Wall Pose

The Lean-Against-Wall Pose

For those grooms who love posing by leaning against a wall, here is an awesome
posing idea. Unquestionably, this ‘standing-leg-cross-pose’ can be tried by grooms
wearing pant-suit outfits or even Sherwani outfits. Our groom is placing his both
hands in the pant pockets. However, this pose can be also aced by placing just one
hand in the pocket and casually resting the other hand.
A wide smile would make this pose even more lively. In order to make the portrait
more edgy and neat, choose a catchy nook with a detailed pillar or a wall. The groom
can also look away from the camera. In such poses, maintaining a neutral face or
smiling lightly would be more suitable.

4) The Sherwani Pose

The Sherwani pose is an evergreen and simple pose for grooms in the history of
groom poses for an Indian wedding. Without a doubt, this pose is easily found
among the groom portraits clicked ages ago, all across the country. A sherwani worn
with a dupatta adds great definition to the groom portraits. To begin with, style your
dupatta in an attractive way with respect to your taste and body shape.
Then, hold the Dupatta with one hand. The other arm can be relaxed without holding
any element of the attire. To add more detail, avoid standing in parallel to the camera.
Instead, turn lightly to one side and look at the camera by just keeping your head
straight to the camera eye. Also, if you wish to get a standard straight shot, look away
from the camera with a neutral face.

5) Inside-the-Car Pose

Inside-the-Car Pose

The inside-the-car pose is an impressive one that almost all grooms are excited about.
Though bridal portraits are also captured from car seats, groom portraits are often
given more significance while shooting inside-the-car portraits. For traditional grooms
in mundu outfits, candids can be captured while opening the car door and stepping out
of the car. There are limitless options to try around and inside a car while capturing
groom portraits. Leaning on the car, about to drive the car, peeping out of the
window, candids while rolling down the window are some excellent portrait ideas for
all the handsome grooms out there.

overwhelming joy are clearly expressed in the portrait.
Similarly, there are a handful of easily achievable poses that can be tried by the

per the comfort and confidence of the groom. Adjusting the hair, buttoning the
shirt/vest, tying the shoelaces, wearing the watch, wearing spectacles/sunglasses etc
are some awesome pose ideas for vanity shots.

A regal set of furniture or a minimal backdrop without unnecessary disturbances in
the frame can bring out excellent sit-down poses for grooms. Straight and top-angle
shots can bring the best outputs. This relaxed pose is a good icebreaker between the
photographer and the groom. As the pose requires sitting down with an appropriate
posture, there is a visible reduction in the stress level.
