Now that you have the basics down, let’s try some actual poses. Some of the examples below are static and some are moving. All can be turned into “natural” couple poses by giving the cues that create more connection.

Also, keep in mind that the poses below can each be made to be romantic, sweet, silly, or fun, depending on the directions you give.

1. Standing

Standing

There are a number of standing poses to start from. The first and most obvious is for the couple to stand head-to-head, looking straight into the camera, with her holding an arm on his chest. Take both close-ups as well as wider shots.

Another very easy pose has the taller of the two holding the other from behind. The couple can look at each other or straight into the camera. From here they can kiss, nuzzle, or whisper sweet nothings to each other.

2. The T-bone pose (standing)

T Bone

For this pose,  place the taller person at a 45-degree angle from the camera. Then place the shorter person’s shoulder into the armpit area of the taller person.

From here, the couple can share a caring look, hold hands, snuggle, or hug. If you like, have the taller person kiss the person leaning into them on the forehead or cheek.

A variation of this pose is having them stand with a little distance between each other and holding hands.

3. Faces Together, looking at the camera

faces

This is a bit more of a classic pose.

Have the couple put their faces next to each other, looking at the camera. If you like, have the man slightly angle in slightly toward the camera with the woman slightly behind him laying her head on his shoulder.

4. Forehead kissing

This is a simple pose that brings out the tenderness between a couple.

Begin by connecting the couple in some way, whether by holding hands or linking elbows. Then take turns having one gently kiss the other on the forehead. Capture the moment when the receiver is, for a split second, lost in the kiss.

5. Not quite kissing

sitting couple almost kissing

For a more romantic image, ask the couple to get really close to each other and slowly move into a kiss. Keep them moving to the point where they are almost kissing, but not quite there yet.

Have them lock eyes and suspend that moment of tension that comes just before their lips meet. (This can be done standing, sitting, or lying down.)

On a side note, the actual act of kissing rarely turns out good in photos. It’s best to avoid the face-smashing moment and instead go for the moment just before when the energy is at its strongest. You’ll find the end result much more romantic.

This is also a great pose for boudoir photography, since the male can largely obscure the female’s chest with his knee and hands.

6. Walking

couple walking together

For a more natural, active portrait have the couple begin walking, first toward you and then away. At the same time they should be holding hands and looking and smiling at each other. See if you can get them laughing.

Variations of this pose include switching up the way they’re holding hands or having one put their arm through the other’s. If you like, ask them to stop and for one to lean their head on the other’s shoulder. Or share a kiss.

Another variation is to have one of them ahead of the other, holding the other’s hand. They can either both be looking forward or looking at each other.

If the couple is feeling nervous in front of the camera, start by having them walk away. Since they’re not facing the camera, this functions well as an easy couple photography pose to get things started with.

For any of these photos, you can either crop in closely or go for a wider shot. What works best will depend on your photoshoot location. If you’re shooting some place beautiful like on a beach or a park, capturing the surroundings will add a bit of romance to the image.

7. Holding each other

passionate embrace

This is another couple pose that’s good for more romantic, intimate portraits. It can be done while sitting, standing, or lying down. They can be either face-to-face, one in front of the other, or leaning into something. Whatever illicit a caring, romantic feel.

Now ask them to laugh together, share a kiss, or just look at peace together with their eyes closed. This pose doesn’t have to look romantic – it can be silly, serene, or just plain loving. Try different cues or “assignments” and see what spontaneously arises.

Make sure to get wide-angle and close-up shots of this one – switching up lenses is essential when posing people to ensure there’s plenty of variety in the final images.

(This can be combined with couple pose example #4 as well.)

8. Lying Down

Cute pictures of couples can also happen when the couple is lying down. There are a number of different poses to be had here, many of which can be combined with kissing, laughing, couples boudoir, or just laying next to each other being silly. Outdoors or inside near a hearth or comfy corner, these photos can come out looking really playful.

You can position the couple side by side or lying in opposite directions with their faces next to each other. You can also ask one to rest their head on there other’s back or stomach. They can be looking at each other or at the camera – try both and see what comes out best.

If the couple is lying on their backs, you’ll want to photograph them from above. Sometimes a step stool or some other way to add to your height will really help.

On the other hand, if they’re lying on their stomachs, you’ll need to get down on their level to get the best angle. (Be careful that nothing is showing that shouldn’t!)

This can also be a good best friend pose too, and always brings about fits of laughter, which is great for a natural-looking image.

9. Dancing

Asking the couple to dance can result in some really great photos. They might feel silly, but the movement can often look very beautiful on camera. It doesn’t really matter where, just get them moving.

Together Cards – Posing Made Simple

Together Cards

Together Cards make couple posing far easier than ever before.

One of the biggest struggles of wedding and portrait photographers is thinking of ways to direct their couples into natural-looking poses.

One ingeniously simple solution to the problem is a tool called Together Cards – illustrations of stylish poses which can be used as ‘starting points’ to direct your couples.

The idea isn’t to mimic your favourite pose exactly, but rather, to use it as a comfortable place from which to start. Get the couple into something that looks stylistically decent, then work from there with the tips explained above.

Sometimes you’ll find that the Together Card you’ve chosen doesn’t suit the mood of the moment, or the energy of your couple – don’t worry, just move on with the next one, or make a funny comment to encourage a natural moment to capture.

If you’ve ever been stuck for ideas during an engagement shoot, or need some inspiration at your next bridal shoot, Together Cards are the answer – the best part is your clients will never know you’re looking at them.

What is Natural Posing?

Using silhouettes is a creative way to photograph a couple.

Posing of any sort is not a natural thing for humans to do, which begs the question, what is natural posing or “un-posing”?

Natural posing is when you photograph the couple while they’re engaging in natural actions. Perhaps you ask the couple to walk and simply enjoy the moment, or just sit close to each other and say something they love about one another.

By engaging in what they already naturally do, a lot of natural expressions, gestures, and relaxed poses will arise that are often much more authentic than any pose you can put them in. It makes for couple portraits that look natural and uncontrived – see other portrait poses here.

On the photographer’s side, it’s the art of capturing the moment of connection that naturally arises during unrehearsed interaction. The intention is to capture photos that really reveal the love the couple shares with each other.

The challenge in all of this is that even ‘natural posing’ doesn’t come easily to most couples, especially for those not comfortable in front of the camera or unused to showing affection in public.

That’s why it’s important to learn how to put a couple at ease both before and during the shoot, as well as how to direct them in a way that will help them express their love and connection to each other in front of the camera.

Before the Photoshoot Begins

Let your couple be awkward for a moment for the most natural reactions!

One of the biggest mistakes many photographers make is assuming that capturing great images during photoshoots of couples is all about successful posing (natural or otherwise). This is actually not true.

Most couples have a lot of nerves, questions, and fears leading up to a session. They’re unsure of what to expect.

This is where your pre-shoot communication really needs to be strong. In fact, many successful couples-photographers say that up to 80% of the work needed to help their clients relax and feel more comfortable happens in the communication leading up to the session.

Part of this includes your website and social media – how you present yourself publicly. Another part is how you interact with them once they’ve made contact. Your email and phone communication needs to be professional and geared towards helping them feel confident.

For example, sending them a guide offering tips on how to decide on location, what to wear and what to bring well before the shoot will help them know what to expect.

Let them know that the photoshoot will be lighthearted and fun.

Assure them that their photos will look natural, and that you will help them get the most out of it.

If you want a real game changer, meet the couple for coffee, drinks, or food before the session. Having time to ease nerves, build trust, and get excited together will make a huge difference in rapport during the actual photo session.

This might take a half hour more of your time, but the difference it will make in how your clients feel about the experience and how the photos turn out will be priceless – check out this article on wedding photography posing tips for more on this technique.

If you can’t hang out a little beforehand, try to meet somewhere and carpool the rest of the way to the location.

Above all, it’s really important to have time to connect before the actual shoot.

Clothing: What Should a Couple Wear to Their Photoshoot?

Above all else, let your couples be comfortable in their clothing.

One key way to help a couple feel at ease during their session is for them to feel confident in what they’re wearing. Ideally you’ll have a conversation with them about this before the shoot or have sent them a guide in email.

Your subject’s mindset is strongly affected by what they wear. If they’re uncomfortable or wearing unfamiliar clothing, this will be apparent in how they pose as well as in their facial expressions. Feeling uncomfortable may also affect their ability to generate the spark of connection you’re trying to capture in their images.

For casual couple portraits, your clients should wear something that makes them feel confident, relaxed and comfortable. Their outfits should be something they believe looks good on them.

As far as colors are concerned, suggest that they wear colors that compliment each other rather than matching colors.

It’s also helpful to avoid anything with patterns, drawings, letters, or strong colors. These might distract from what’s important in the photos – the bond between them.

If there’s a changing room nearby, they can bring multiple outfits. If not and it’s winter or fall, ask them to wear layers. With luck they might be able to take a layer off and have an entirely different look underneath.

Lastly, choose clothing that’s appropriate to the location you’re shooting in. For example, what one wears on a sunny day outdoors at the beach will be totally different than sitting by a fireplace indoors.

Speaking of the outdoors, make sure the couple is warm enough. It would be a shame to have a fantastic sunset on a cold, wintry day and have your clients too cold to relax into it.

Couples Photography: Setting the Stage

Not everything needs to be natural – just have some fun!

Photography can be nerve wracking, especially if you’re not used to being in front of the lens. That’s why allowing time for the couple to ease into things is so important.

Once you arrive at your location, there are a few things you should do before you start in with shooting.

If you didn’t have a chance to spend time with the couple before arriving, spend the first 15 minutes or so getting to know them. Ask them more questions about themselves, and share more about you. Build rapport by being as real and authentic with them as you’d like them to be in front of the camera.

If you did spend time with them before arriving, this is a good time for them to explore the location and ease into the idea of the photoshoot.

During these first fifteen minutes, notice the places they gravitate to and how they interact with each other.

Remember that you are all going on an adventure together, and not rushing straight into couple photography poses will help them relax into the process.

Couples Photography: Capturing the Connection

Simply asking your couples to close their eyes can elicit natural reactions.

Creating a great couple portrait is less about couple photography poses and more about energetic connection.

If you create the space for the energy to arise, it will only take a little direction to capture high-quality portraits.

So, how do you go about capturing a couple’s love, bonds, and connection through your lens? How do you get two complete strangers to let down their guard in front of you and get lost in the moment?

Natural posing can definitely help in this department, but there’s more to it than that.

To begin with, you must be genuinely interested in these two humans: their story, what in life has lead them to choosing each other, and what they feel with each other.

You also need to know what they are genuinely hoping to get out of this photoshoot.

If you’ve taken some time to build rapport before the shoot (see above), you’re well on your way to helping them to relax and show some of the love and connection they feel toward each other.

During the shoot, continue building your connection with them. Create a sense of a shared journey that they can relax into and enjoy.

If your couple is still finding it difficult to relax into their feelings, try giving them an ‘assignment’, otherwise known as ‘cues’. Here are some examples:

  • Ask one person to draw something on the second person’s cheek with their nose. Meanwhile, the second person closes their eyes while the first person is drawing, and then has to guess what they drew.
  • Ask them to face one another and say “I love you” in as many different accents they can.
  • Have the couple hold hands and walk towards you. Beforehand, secretly instruct one of them to bump hips with the other as they walk.
  • “When I say go, I want [person A] to whisper their favorite breakfast food in [person B’s] ear using their most seductive voice. Ready? Go!”
  • “On 3, say the other person’s favorite color!”
  • Ask them for the first dance song at their wedding or the first song they ever danced to. Find it on Spotify and recreate that first dance right there.
  • “While holding [person A] close you, whisper into their ear and talk about a moment you were proud of them.”

As you can see, each of these cues is designed to put the couple at ease while at the same time eliciting feelings of tenderness, love, and ideally fun.

You may feel a bit silly asking your couples to do this, but it’s your job as the photographer to encourage and capture the evocative moments as they come up.

Directing Natural Couple Poses

Try and act like a movie director when posing your couples.

It may seem like natural couple poses are by definition un-directed, but this is quite far from the truth.

Couples often don’t know where to place their hands, where to put their weight or how to stand, what to do with their arms…

Some of this will be taken care of by having them interact naturally with each other, but they’ll still need some direction, and they’ll be looking to you for it.

The overarching directive is to make sure the couple is always aware of the connection they have with each other, whether it be physical (i.e. touching) or non-physical (i.e. gazing at one another).

Another good rule of thumb is to have them laugh instead of talk. It’s best to avoid photos taken mid-talking or mid-eating. Instead of talking to each other, ask them to laugh at how awkward they’re feeling, each other’s silliness, or a shared joke.

And remember to capture the moments between the poses. You need to give direction but it’s often the spontaneous moments in between that bring out the most palpable emotions.

Couple Poses: Micro Adjustments

Brides hands should be delicate. Grooms hands purposeful and strong.

The more experienced you get in working with couples, the more details and nuances you’ll be able to pay attention to.

Beginner photographers often miss out on the little things that can really affect the overall image – especially if they’re focusing exclusively on the bigger picture or poses.

Here are a few micro adjustments to look out for when posing your subjects:

  • Hair: Watch out for fly-aways and/or frizz on top of the head. Smooth it out or pat it down. Also, gather up any stray hairs.
  • Fingers: A viewer’s eyes will follow wherever fingers are pointing to, so watch for where they may lead. For example, stay clear of having them lead towards the crotch area to avoid leading the eye down there.
  • Hip spacing: If you’re using a couple pose which has them facing each other, make sure there is no space between where their hips touch.
  • Hands: Full hands should never be placed in pockets. Have just the thumbs go inside instead, otherwise the hands can look like cut off limbs, with the arms ending in a wrist.
  • Angles: Avoid straight and square compositions. Instead, look for triangular and irregular compositions. This will add interesting lines and dynamic flow to your images, rather than to a flat and static look.

Another thing to be aware of is that long hair can get really go all over the place when shooting outdoors. Bringing a comb and some hairpins with you can sometimes really save the day.

Overall, train yourself to always check your clients’ hair and clothes before pressing the shutter button. After a while, it’ll become second nature.

Two books that I highly recommend you read, are: The Photographer’s Guide to Posing: Techniques to Flatter Everyone by Lindsay Adler, and Picture Perfect Practice: A Self-Training Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Taking World-Class Photographs by Roberto Valazuela.

Both these books are full to the brim with tips on posing couples and individuals and are essential reference books no matter your photography level.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should couples pose for pictures?

A couple should pose in a way that brings out the connection and love that is between them. While there are many couple poses to choose from, ones that feel natural and comfortable are most likely to get the best effect.

What should a couple wear for a photoshoot?

A couple should wear clothes that complement each other. Avoid clothes with strong patterns, drawings, letters, or strong colors, as these can distract from what’s important in the photo – the love and connection that is between you.

At the same time, make sure to express your personal style. The more confident you both feel, the better your photos will turn out.

How do I look good in pictures?

There are a number of poses you can make that will help you look great in photos. One is to make sure you angle your body to the camera rather than facing it straight on. Another is to make sure you put your chin a little forward.

Also, keep your arms away from your body when facing the camera and definitely don’t cross your arms.

Final Words on Natural Couple Poses

If in doubt, just ask the couple to walk!

Whether you’re a pro shooting engagement photos or an amateur looking for great shots to share on Pinterest, capturing great couple portraits is definitely an art.

In fact, creating natural-looking couple poses is much more difficult than it looks. There are lot of things to pay attention to, from the environment and background around the couple to the rapport you’re building with them to little things like flyaway hairs.

Learning which couple poses will evoke the most authentic emotion will take time and practice. The more your try different posing ideas and cues, the more your couples photography will improve.

Hopefully this guide will give you plenty of ideas for landing the stellar portraits both you and the couples you shoot can be proud of!

Couple Poses for Perfect Portrait Photography

Here are a few tips and tricks to get cute couple poses:

Make a Plan before the Couple Photoshoot

Like all good portrait sessions, cute couple photos don't just magically happen. They take a little bit of technique and planning. Great pictures aren't taken, they're made. To that end, a good photographer will be mission-oriented to getting the best photos from the very beginning. And to accomplish that, they're going to have to befriend the couple.

All portraits come down to the models' comfort level. If the pair is uptight and uncomfortable around you, you aren't going to be able to get very good photographs. So from the first time you meet with your couple, focus on making the experience fun and exciting.

The best way to accomplish this is with an informal consultation, where you meet them without a camera. Put together an inspiration board or idea book with your favorite couple's photographs. Talk honestly about what you like and what you don't like. Encourage them to do the same. Work out some rough couple poses drawing examples based on the ideas that you all come up with. The goal is to figure out what sort of photo session the couple wants and then to make it happen.

Coordinating Outfits

Part of the pre-shoot consultation should include some discussion of attire. There are many paths to take, and a lot of ideas might come from the inspiration board or couple poses drawing.

The wardrobe choices are entirely up to you and the couple. Many cute couple poses come from wardrobe choices that help tell the story. From formal evening wear to casual t-shirts and shorts or much less, the sky is the limit.

Coordinating Outfits

The rule of thumb for any choices, from wardrobe to location to poses, is that the couple must be comfortable. Forcing laid-back surfers into suits and gowns isn't going to work, just like taking city folks and putting them in cowboy boots isn't going to work. 

The pair needs to be at home in their outfits, and they must believe that they look good in it. Never force them to be someone they're not.

Keep an Eye on the Small Stuff

Photographers must keep their eyes on the photo composition, the poses, and the technicalities of the camera. But all the while, it's important to keep an eye on little details. If outdoors in the wind, hairstyles and outfits can get blown out of place and into awkward positions. Be nice about it, but keep on top of these little issues that will have a big effect on the photos. In the end, everyone wants the photos to make them look great.

There are a few other things that photographers need to watch out for. Hands should never go in pockets, which can make a person look like an amputee in a two-dimensional photograph. Viewers will always follow where fingers are pointed, so use that tool in your composition. Also, in most poses, their hips should be touching. Awkward spacing in photos ruins the look of closeness.

As with all portraiture, avoid face-on flat images and square posing. Look for interesting angles and use three-quarters poses to their maximum effect. 

Shoot Outdoors

Couple photos work well in any type of location. Like the wardrobe choices, the perfect place is one where the couple is happy and relaxed. But you can use the site to tell more about these people and their love. Pick a place that they are passionate about, be it a park in the city where they got engaged or a mountain cabin where they love to spend summer vacations.

Couple Outdoor Shoot

Themed Couple Pose Shoots

The theme of all couple photos is the relationship between the subjects. Their story and connection is the purpose of the shoot. With this in mind, couple shoots are a little more involved than most portrait work since there is more to tell.

As you review wardrobe, location, and pose ideas with your couple, you will hopefully get to know them a little bit better. There are many great ideas for themed shoots. These can revolve around a location or props. But either way, you can hone in and fine-tune your plan to put together the photos into a cohesive story.

If the couple surfs, get their boards out and head for the beach. Get shots in the water, swimming, plus posed images at the beach. If the pair is city-dwellers, theme your shots like a street photography shoot. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity and what the couple is into.

Creative Lighting

It's also worth noting that couples photography is more about capturing and creating an emotional response in the viewer, especially when compared to most other forms of portraits such as self-portraits or family portraits. Moody lighting and creative effects are much more common in these photos.

Dramatic lens flares are usually frowned on but can be used to great effect here. So too can backlighting and harsh rays of sunlight shining through windows or trees. For the photographer, this frees up some creativity to play with backlighting and silhouettes. Some photographers even use double-exposure compositions to tell a story.

Tell Their Story

Images that immediately tell a story are instant winners. Some cute couple poses feature a surprise, like a ring or flowers, hidden from the view of one partner. Look for ways to add to the plot of the story and to add depth.

One way to do this is to use the weather and the location to create a story, and let your couple tell it. But using the above tips and coordinating the couple's personality, the site, wardrobe choices, and poses, it will likely flow naturally.

Cute couple poses

Post-Processing Tips

After the shoot is finished, you'll have a much better idea of what tack to take with the photographs. Keep your theme and planning in mind as you move into post-production. Just like on location, couples photography often makes use of dramatic lighting and heavy-handed effects. Make colors pop, and add drama to the photo and the story.

Best Couple Poses Ideas

Now that you have a rough idea of the sort of shoot you'll be doing, you can dig into the basics of cute couple picture poses. The best guides provide an outline that you can fine-tune and look at with your clients to figure out what they want to do.

The importance of planning cannot be overstated. If you show up unprepared for the shoot and haven't taken the time to get to know the couple, chances are you aren't going to get good images.

Couple Posing Essential - Where to Look

Not every great couple pose involves both parties looking directly into the camera and smiling. As a matter of fact, this is a pretty flat and unimaginative way to approach the shoot. Remember, the photos aren't just of the partners but also their love story. When directing their gazes, you have four basic options. They can both look at the camera, look at each other, both look away, or have just one of them look at the camera.

Posing Essential-Where to Look

All of these choices can completely change poses for better or worse. They're listed here so that they can be combined with other pose options found below. You might pose the couple in what you thought would be an intimate sitting pose with them looking into each other's eyes, only to discover that it falls a bit flat. Try instead to have one look into the camera, or have them both gaze away.

Standing, Sitting, Laying Down Couple Poses

The three basic portrait poses–standing, sitting, and reclining–do not change. All three can be employed like with other photo shoots. When working out couples poses, though, you'll want to focus on how to use the positioning of your clients to foster a sense of intimacy.

Standing poses should be done as close together as possible, and always touching in some way. Even if it's just holding hands, there should be a physical connection in the composition between the characters. Examples of great couples pictures that are standing apart are few and far between. Standing poses can also be done while leaning on walls or railings.

The same goes for sitting and reclining poses as well. Work with arms and legs to emphasize coziness and cuddling. Even just having the pair lean on each other helps show a deep emotional bond in the photographs.

Sitting and reclining couple poses

Create Physical Intimacy

Unlike in high school, public displays of affection should be encouraged during a couples shoot. It should help tell their love story and how they want to present it is up to them. Hugs are a great way to connect the couple in a way that everyone will be comfortable with. Classic couples shots include both people looking into the camera, with one partner's arms wrapped around the other.

Just framing images so that the individual's faces are close to one another fosters intimacy. You can do close up shots of faces that are touching or nearly touching.

Kiss photos are, of course, a staple of cute couple poses. But never forget that the "almost kiss" is even more powerful. Try to capture that special moment before the kiss too.

Telling the pair to whisper in each other's ears is a great trick to encourage a similar intimate look in a photograph. You can cue them to whisper something funny or sweet, and try to capture the emotional reaction as they do it. Laughter is a great tool here to lighten the mood and keep everyone upbeat.

Hand placement is another consideration in the composition when capturing intimacy. A viewer's eyes are drawn to the subject's hands. The difference between a hand on the shoulder and a hand on the hip completely change the mood of a pose from one showing friendliness to one showing romantic love. A hand on the other's face or neck is deeply intimate in portraits.

Active Lifestyle Shots

Not all couple's shots should be static and staged. Look for opportunities to get your couple moving around, walking towards the camera or away from it. Have them hold hands and gaze into each other's eyes.

Another great technique is to incorporate the couple's shared favorite activities. Are they musicians, skaters, hikers, or bikers? Whatever their thing is, bring it out into the foreground. Have them bring props or help you out by picking their favorite location. Find ways to make intimate portraits of them doing what they love to do and doing it together.

An excellent example of this idea put into practice is couple yoga poses. If your couple is a pair of yogis, work with them to put it into part of your shoot. The great thing about couple yoga poses is that these images have it all. The location, wardrobe, poses, and activity all point to an intimate connection between two souls and tell a unique story.

Consider taking Shots of the Details

Some of the best couple photos might not even have their faces. Consider taking cropped images of their feet, arms, or other details. If part of the story being told involves rings, this might be a given. But it can also include shared tattoos, footwear styles, props, or details in the location.

Candids In Between

With all of the focus on poses and activities, you might have a lot of different shots to capture. But just like a wedding or an event photographer, keep your eyes open for those impromptu moments when moving from one pose to the next. How does the couple interact? Keep your camera at the ready, and try to capture some of these honest moments. Hopefully, they're having fun and are engaged with one another so that you'll catch some smiles and banter.

Get Creative with Couple Poses

Couples photography is a marvelous form of portrait work in that it opens up so many possibilities. Work with the couple and be creative. There's no right or wrong way, as long as the couple is happy. Get the pair to be silly and take chances. The worst that will happen is one lame photo. Try making posed selfies or try recreating famous scenes from the movies, like Jack and Kate on the bow of the Titanic.

Props are also a great way to add a little drama to the visual story. Fireworks, like sparklers or smoke bombs, make for awesome images. Props can also be related to the couple's favorite activities, like tents, guitars, cars, or boats.

Couples are always looking for new and inventive ways to capture their portraits. Wide-angle photos are a great way to feature the location, mainly if the couple chose an expansive outdoor venue. Drones are becoming more popular to get a heads-down shot from above. This bird's-eye view can take wide-angle shots to the next level, and show them in their special place.

And last but not least, it's always a good idea to offer to include the rest of the family, be it children or pets. Do read our guide to family photography with tips and techniques to add that special touch to portraits. Dogs, in particular, are great in active shots outdoors. It’s a great way to include something unique and shared.

Conclusion

Remember, couples photography is all about telling a story. But to be clear, it's not the photographer's story that's being told. If you're working with paying clients, they deserve that you take the time to understand them and produce something representative of them. It takes a little more work, but the results are well worth it.

Procedure

Grab something to draw! Select the type of poses you want to draw and your desired time limit.
Try to draw the essence of the pose within the time limit. The image will change after the time limit has passed.

For a special list of images go to Challenges.
For non time limit mode use Random gestures.
For images with time limit use Timed practice.

Note: Challenges are always 20 images each session.

Examples

I believe Ryan Woodward is one the best artists when it comes to figurative gesture drawing.

Tips

  • Draw the essence of the pose first and work on details later.
  • You will get better each session but it takes time and practice.
  • Learn from your mistakes. If you do this you will improve much faster.
  • Make these exercises a daily habit and you will surely improve a lot !
  • Find the best drawing from the previous session and aim to beat that during this session.
  • Challenge yourself and choose a shorter time limit every couple of weeks.
  • Try to complete your drawing on time.
  • If you can't complete your drawing on time maybe you should change the time limit.
  • If your drawings are out of proportion try drawing the hips and backbone first.
  • Try different drawing materials from time to time.
  • Don't forget to have fun.
