Engagement Session Posing Ideas Without looking Cheesy
If you are newly engaged, congratulations! This is such a thrilling time, but the aspect of taking photos may seem a bit daunting. This beautiful time with your significant other is a time of celebration and love. Its also the perfect time to capture it forever. Although everyone spends most of their life in front of or behind a camera, this may be your first time taking engagement photos! If you are searching for ideas for posing, without looking cheesy, I hope you find this short guide helpful!
- Stay close! This is the perfect time to show just how much you love one another. When you are close, it also makes being in front of the camera that much easier.
- Movement! If you dont want to have a stiff feeling set of engagement photos, make sure to move! Walk together, or just move where you are at. The more movement in photos, the more fun!
- Play with each other! This might seem against the rules, when our whole lives we are told to smile at the camera. Having playful and candid moments will make your session more fun and genuine.
- Just Dance! Seriously, do a few spins and dance with each other. It may feel weird at first, but you will have a great time and the photos will show it!
- Take it Easy! Its a great idea to lay down for a couple shots. You dont want too many of any one pose, but a laying down shot, either from above or the side can be a lot of fun.
- XOXO! When it comes to kissing shots, less is more, but you definitely want to have at least a few great kiss shots! They make for a great addition to your session.
- Piggy Back! A quick piggy back can lighten the mood of any session fast. Its great for a laugh and makes for some really fun shots.
- Wrap up close! Lets get even closer! Grab those hands and arms and wrap up around each other. You will love these intimate shots.
- Pick up the movement! The walking shots have been awesome and are a must, but why not pick up the pace and get even more movement with some running shots.
- Listen up! Rely on the direction of your photographer! Its great that you are coming to the shoot with some great ideas in mind, but be ready to let moments happen with your photographer. So much of the session will happen when you aren’t even thinking about it!
