I've been asked to do a few shots at a wedding but I have an over 6 footer groom and an under 5 footer bride to deal with.

Any suggestions or ideasof how one should aproach these subjects. None of the books ever deal with that.

my thought is that they are probably pretty much aware of their height difference. If you try to do something that changes that, it may look a little un-natural to them. Aside from photographing them seated, or him seated with her standing, which seems a little backwards to me, there is not much that you can do and still make the photo look natural. You could have her seated with him kneeling behind. Head shots are a little different, the height difference doesn't show so much there, have his eye level about even with her lips and you will geta nice diagonal line in the composition. Other than that, just shoot them the way they are.
