Celebrating your engagement with a photo shoot is a lovely idea. You and your partner share an undeniable chemistry. Surely you know how to enjoy each other’s company, make each other laugh, and be yourselves when you are with one another. However, things can completely change when you step in front of the camera.
As soon as the camera is pointed at you, you may be at a loss for what to do next. How do you pose? Is this pose too cheesy? When I pose like this, is it really that flattering? While of course your photographer will guide you through your poses, it is nice to make yourself aware of some fun and engaging ones.
Here at Misha Media, we know that it can be hard to create unique photos when you’re at a loss for poses. That’s why we have put together a few great poses for you to consider using within your engagement photos. If you are planning an engagement photo session, be sure to keep reading for some inspiration:
- Protective arm. When you are with your partner you feel safe, emotionally and physically. You now have each other and you will fight for each other until the end of time. You and your partner can take turns with the protective arm, resting your arm around the shoulder and your hand on their other shoulder. This is a lovely way to show that you will always protect each other.
- Picnic with your furry friend. If you have a furry friend in your life, then surely it’s not just about you and your partner. Incorporating your lovable pup or cat within your photos gives you your own family photo as well as the perfect chance to show off your engagement. Creating a romantic picnic setting forms a lovely element for your photos. It also gives you the chance to subtly flash that gorgeous ring of yours, perhaps as you pet your pup or serve them a treat.
- Pillow fight. Your partner is not only your romantic lover, but your best friend. You also enjoy having fun with each other. Grabbing a pillow and playfully swinging it at your partner will instantly spark the smiles and laughter. With feathers in the air, a smile painted on your faces, and a casual setting, you and your partner will showcase your natural feeling of love, comfort, and fun. Some of the best photos of you are captured when you are having fun or least expect it.
Surely you will find many inspirational poses for your big day. It’s important to let loose, enjoy your partner’s company and have fun. Here at Misha Media, we would be honored to capture your photos. If you are interested in planning your Illinois photography, be sure to contact us today.
