Ever try to get a cute couples shot, but it turns out awkward? The couple just stands there stiffly, or they do the traditional “prom pose”? How do you get couples to look natural … like they are enjoying each other without them tensing up in front of the camera? Here are a couple of ideas for you to try:
1. Tell them to “snuggle”. It’s a good idea to have them somewhat posed first, then by telling them to snuggle, they usually get closer and connect in a way that is natural for them.
2. Get them laughing. Getting them to laugh a little bit right before you shoot is a great way to catch them being natural.
3. Get the right kind of kiss. Seeing lips stuck together isn’t always fun for others to look at in a photo, but a sweet forehead kiss, or noses almost touching is magic!
