TOP POSES FOR COUPLES!
How do you make your couples' poses look natural but posed at the same time? It is a question that every photographer contemplates multiple times during a session! I have FIVE perfect poses that I like to use in every session to create that dreamy, in-love, and natural feeling in my photos.
1) THE SWING-
Have the taller person in your duo come up behind the smaller person, grab them around the waist, and swing them around! This looks so candid and natural because your couple will most likely be belly laughing while dong this. Make sure your shutter speed is fast so you can capture those movements!
2) FOREHEAD TO FOREHEAD-
Have your couple touch their foreheads to one another's and close their eyes. This creates an intimate feel to your photos. This pose is great because you can get a super up-close shot or stand far away and the effect is the same!
3) THE RING SHOT-
This is one of my favorite poses to have my married or engaged couples do! Have one person gently hold the other person's hand (ring side out) and extend their arms as far out as they can while kissing. Make sure you use point-focus and focus right on their hands. This will blur our their kiss in the background while really focusing on that ring! This creates such a beautiful, jaw-dropping photo every time!
4) NECK NUZZLES-
This is one of the best poses to capture that candid feel we all strive for as photographers! Have the taller person in your duo lean down and nuzzle or kiss the neck of the smaller person. This can give two different feels to your photo: intimate or playful. Some couples will laugh during this pose, creating a playful, candid feel. Other couples will totally play into the close, sexy side of the pose, creating an intimate feel. Either way, this will make for stunning photos!
5) THE HIP BUMP-
This pose always feel so silly, but have your couple walk toward you at a slow pace while lightly hip bumping each other. This ensures that their walk toward the camera looks natural (in the photo of course) and eliminates any rigidness that can happen. Make sure to have them look at each other while they ware are walking to keep it natural looking!
