10 Tips to Nail the Engagement Session with Better Photo Poses

10 tips to nail the engagement session

Engagement sessions are a great way to connect with your clients, but they are very different from the grueling marathon of photographing a wedding. You have a lot more time than you do on the wedding day to set up poses and get to know the couple. Here at ShootDotEdit, we help wedding pros with their color correction and print sales, and we see a lot of engagement sessions each and every season. Here are 10 tips to help professional wedding photographers nail the engagement session and your engagement photo poses.

How to Take Engagement Photos

Coming up with engagement photo poses that suit your couple is vital to building trust and rapport for the wedding day. In addition, you get the chance to show your skills and impress the couple, capturing images that should be a precursor for their wedding photos. And, all the while, you are getting the know the couple better, which will only serve to help you on the wedding day. Lets look through our 10 tips for better engagement photo poses.

1. Use Basic Poses

Engagement Shoots should always follow the KISS principle – Keep It Simple – particularly when it comes to posing. Basic wedding photographer poses always help to get the best shots and help the session to flow smoothly. Pick poses that you know in advance will be flattering and comfortable to both the future bride and the groom. It can be good to have a few “go-to” poses, just in case you get in a bind.
