How to Not be Awkward in Your Engagement Photos
If you’re worried about how you or your partner are going to look in your engagement photos – look no further! We know that a common worry for photos (or a reason people dislike having their photo taken!) is because they don’t want to look awkward. We’re here to give you the best tips on how to not be awkward in your engagement photos!
First thing is first – let go. Just let your guard down from the very beginning. The more you worry about “oh my god does this outfit make me look too big is my hair okay is my partner smiling” the more it shows on your face. Trust us. Just laugh and joke and have fun. Whisper funny things, have a tickle fight and feel free to MOVE.
We’ll pose you in a way that looks flattering and give you tips before the session begins on the best ways to interact and stand. But we encourage all of our couples to move about and interact with one another. The BEST PHOTOS are the ones where your guy is moving a strand of hair out of your face or candidly kisses your forehead in the moment – TRUST US.
Show us your natural chemistry. Be as comfortable in front of each other as you are alone in a room together. If you’re a couple that is okay with PDA, don’t be afraid to make out. You’ll get so many gorgeous photos and your chemistry will show through. If you’re a couple that would prefer to be more private and is okay with more on the cuddling side instead – let us know! We’ll capture the beautifulness of that without pressuring you to full on make out in front of us.
Feel funny during the beginning? Tell us about your first date or the most awkward time your fiancé called your home phone back in high school. The more you open up and share, the better! You’ll start to get comfortable and once you’re comfortable, you’ll LOVE your photos!
