    I went to a seminar with Hanson Fong on Tuesday night and one of the things he taught might have been some assistance to you...

    When you have a larger bride, you can minimize her size by hiding her behind the groom.
    Also, the closer a person is to the camera, the larger they will look.

    The second shot, for example; You could have had him be in the front... this would effectively made him larger and her smaller. She would have been half hidden behind him, again decreasing her portrayed size.

    One of the biggest things he stressed was, always do your best to make the bride look good. They're the ones that are in charge of what and how many prints are purchased after the fact.
