Engagement Photo Poses
Congratulations on your engagement! It marks a new beginning with the love of your life. As you start your new journey together with your significant other, it’s best to immortalise every precious moment you have with them through engagement photos.
Before you tie the knot, you might want to have an engagement photoshoot to capture the moments before you formalise your relationship as a married couple. However, you or your partner may feel uncomfortable with your upcoming photoshoot, especially if you tend to be shy in front of the camera.
4 Engagement Photo Poses You and Your Partner Can Try
To help you look less nervous on your big day and enjoy having the perfect pre-wedding photos, here are some ideas you and your significant other can try. These arent engagement photo poses as such, but more ‘mindsets’ to get into while you’re having your photo taken. Hopefully they can help!
- Show your playfulness
Don’t be afraid to show your silly side and dare to try some fun poses with your soon-to-be husband or wife. If you and your significant other are lovey-dovey types, a pose you can both do is laughing together while holding hands. You can also jump, dance around each other, or walk side by side.
You and your partner don’t have to try so hard. Just be yourselves and make sure to flaunt your true personalities and showcase how happy you are in each other’s companionship. The best photos come simply but taking a photo while you’re doing something, and not acting like a mannequin.
- Highlight your chemistry
Chemistry matters in any romantic relationship, and showing it in your engagement photos is a way to have memorabilia you can keep and treasure forever. Understandably, you may feel uncomfortable showing your affection or getting intimate with your significant other in public. But remember, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about, especially during your engagement photography session.
Perhaps have your photos done where there are no one else around? Perhaps a forest?
The point of a wedding photoshoot is to show the bond you share, so don’t hesitate to kiss or hug your loved one in front of the camera. You can also take your time to feel less nervous by taking some time to breathe in between shoots, which is all perfectly normal.
- Do the “T” pose
A classic romantic pose seen during proms is the “T” pose, and you can try to pull it off during your engagement photoshoot. All you have to do is stand with your shoulders perpendicular to your partner, then wrap your arms around one another. This way, you can strike a loving pose that lets you face each other at an angle where you can easily look at, hug, or even kiss each other.
- Do your favourite poses
If you have some favourite engagement photo poses you want to do during your engagement photoshoot, feel free to discuss them with your partner and photographer. You can also talk about the style you are going for and decide the setting and props you want to use. Doing this lets you become well-prepared for your photography session.
Pinterest is a popular place to look for ideas of engagement photo poses you may like so you can start there, or even have a look through my own portfolio of past engagement shoots for shots that you like.
Having an engagement photo session can be exciting, but you may end up with dull and forgettable photos if you tend to do repetitive poses with your partner. To make the most of your romantic photoshoot and fill your engagement photos with memories and emotions, get a photographer that you believe you can relate well with, delve into each other’s presence, and trust in your photographer.
