Determining the best way to pose one subject—a way that is simultaneously flattering, appropriate, and visually appealing—can be one of the biggest challenges in designing a successful portrait. This is challenge is magnified when a second subject is added into the mix. Quite simply, the variations are almost limitless.

Filled with images by some of the world’s most accomplished wedding and portrait photographers, it provides a resource for professionals seeking inspiration for their own work. Stuck on what to do with a particular couple or unsure how to make use of a location? Flip through the sample portraits, pick something you like, then adapt it as needed to suit your tastes. Looking to spice up your work with some new poses? Find a sample that appeals to you and look for ways to implement it (or some element of it) with one of your couples. It can be difficult to remain creative day after day, year after year, but sometimes all you need to break through a slump is a little spark. In this book, you’ll find a plethora of images designed to provide just that.
