tips for plus-size portraits?

Hi Guys!

My half brother has recently proposed to his long time girlfriend and now that they've set a date for the wedding, they have asked me to do some engagement photos.

My brother is built like a bean pole, but his gf is plus-sized. I am looking for tips and ideas for posing.

My other brother is also a string bean and married to a plus-sized lady and the person who did their wedding photos ended up making them look like Stan and Ollie. At minimum, I *really* want to avoid that this go-around.

TIA for any/all advice! I'm desperate to do a good job for these guys. Smile

Best,
GiGi

Always shoot from above them is one I always remember. Never shoot straight on. Have them put hands on high waist, lean forward or back.
