An engagement photoshoot is a wonderful way to capture the love and excitement of you as a couple as you prepare for your wedding day. However, for many couples, the idea of posing for photos can be daunting. The good news is that with a little bit of preparation and some helpful tips, anyone can look and feel their best in their engagement photos. In this blog, we'll explore the dos and don'ts of posing for your engagement photoshoot, so that you can feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Whether you're camera-shy or a seasoned pro, these tips will help you make the most of your engagement photoshoot and create beautiful, lasting memories.
Don't be too serious.
Use cute props to help you relax and get into the mood, but don't go overboard. Remember that your engagement photos are a chance for you and your partner to show off your personalities, so have fun with it! If there's anything that will make or break an engagement photo shoot, it's how much fun everyone is having while they're posing together in front of the camera. If one person looks like they'd rather be anywhere else than standing next to their partner, then those photos are going straight into the trash can (or at least hidden away on a hard drive).
Practice holding each other's gaze and staying still for a few seconds.
In this pose, you'll want to make sure that both of you can hold each other's gaze for a few seconds without blushing or breaking into laughter. You may want to practise this in front of a mirror first so that you know what works best for both of your faces. Finally, remember to practise this pose with the photographer too--he or she will have some great suggestions on how best to achieve this look during the actual engagement session itself!
Don't forget to have fun.
One significant part of the engagement photoshoot is that you get to have fun! You're getting married and you will be spending your life with this person, so try not to be uptight or too serious during the shoot. Just smile and laugh; it will make your photos look more natural and relaxed.
Relax! It's ok if you don't know what pose looks good on you or how best to show off your body in a flattering way - just relax into it and let us do all of the work for you!
