You Can NEVER be too Fat for photos
Engagement photos for fat brides can be difficult. A lot of the times photographers are unaware of how to shoot fat people and what poses and angles will look most flattering. Bridal forums are littered with horror stories of pictures that featured less than flattering and less than accurate depictions of plus size and fat brides.
I tried, in vain, to search for photographers that specialize in photographing fat people. It is so HARD to find photographers, engagement photographers especially, who are fat friendly.
Fortunately for me, my good friend, Arushi Dodeja did Brian’s and my engagement photos. She was WONDERFUL! She worked well with my body and understood what was flattering and what wasn’t. I highly recommend her for any photography event, but especially engagement photos for fat people. She lives in the Corvallis, OR area and will be moving to the Portland area soon. Her contact info is firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, I’ve heard from a lot of brides that family members and friends have discouraged them from getting their engagement photos because they are too fat. THIS IS NOT TRUE. If you want to get your photo taken and you want to share with the world the love you and your partner have, DO IT. Wear what you want, be you, and don’t let anti-fat phobia and hatred stop you from experiencing the joy and fun that comes from engagement and wedding photos.
Have fun! If you have any relationship/ engagement/wedding photos you’d like to share with the blog, email them to email@example.com.
It’s time to feature fat, plus size, people of size brides and weddings. SEND ALL THE PICTURES!!
