When shooting engagement sessions, many wedding photographers focus on the kiss, but there’s a better way to capture the love between the couple. Award-winning wedding photographer Jasmine Star shares three posing tips for amazing engagement photos:
Tips for Posing Couples
1. Create movement
Tell your clients how you want them to move and what you want them to do; come up with an action plan.
2. It’s not about the kiss!
While a lot of photographers focus on the kiss, Star’s line of thinking on the matter is that it just ends up smushing the couple’s faces together. Instead, try to move them into a kiss slowly.
3. Talk from behind the camera
Guiding the couple along the way will make the whole process easier for everyone.
If you follow these three simple tips, your next engagement session will run more smoothly, and you’ll end up with some lovely, and love-filled, images!
