Best Engagement Photography Poses: Saaty Photography
Best Engagement Photography Poses: Saaty Photography. Getting engaged to the love of your life is such an exciting time, and it is the perfect opportunity to have portraits taken that will capture your love in memories that will be cherished for the rest of your lives. Engagement photos are a unique and fun chance to test the waters when it comes to your wedding photographer. During engagement photos, you can get to know your photographer, their style, and learn some of the poses they will have you do on your wedding day. That way, during your wedding, you’ll have it down! Most of us aren’t born feeling naturally comfortable around a camera and chances are if you’ve had photos taken, you’ve felt the confusion of suddenly forgetting what to do with your hands!
There’s no question in my mind why modeling is a career that takes incredible skill! They make it look so easy, it’s true. Getting photos taken can be awkward at times and suddenly have no idea how to smile and relax. Comfort in front of the camera takes some time; so don’t put too much pressure on being perfect right away. The good news is, awkwardness can create some beautiful laughing shots, so don’t worry if you aren’t feeling relaxed right away. More good news? I’ve got some poses up my sleeve to help lead you and your fiancée toward photos that make it look like you’re an absolute pro! Here are some go-to poses that can help you rock your engagement session and maybe even make you realize you totally can be Americas next top model!
Struggle Cuddle / Chokehold
Aggressive? Try adorable!
Okay, so you’re not kids anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go for a piggyback ride!
Head to Head, Hearts Center
This is an intimate, meaningful pose sure to make some emotions rise up. Don’t worry, that’s what tissues are for.
Dance / Spin
What better way to practice your first dance than to do it while getting your engagement photos taken? Two love birds, one stone (Get it? The ring!)
Pull in Close
The difference between standing close to begin with and drawing each other in is the power of motion. Movement is much more natural and relaxed than just standing in the pose!
This is one of the sweetest shots there is and it just shows how much love is between you both.
The Walking Shot
This one can feel a little funny (remember, awkward makes some genuine laughs!) but it looks so good! Trust me!
Showcase the Ring
The money, time, and thought that went into it are enough to make it deserving of it’s own photo in the spotlight! But let’s be real it’s so gorgeous it NEEDS to be shown off!
This is an adorable shot to show affection for each other… and another way to get that amazing ring in there, of course!
Moments Before the Kiss
Kissing shots are a must of course, but that pause right before says SO much.
Hopefully these ten engagement poses have sparked some creativity and excitement for your engagement shoot. If you need more inspiration, Pinterest is a great place to look to gather great ideas. You’ll be naturals before you know it!
