Megan’s 3 Favorite Prompts for Posing Couples

When photographing sessions, I do a mix of posed portraits and prompt posing –and the prompts are my favorite! They are how I get natural reactions out of my couples. 

ONE. THE KISS GAME

First, have one person stand in front of the other, with their back against the other’s chest. The person in the back should hug the other from behind. Now it’s time to deliver the tasks to each person. On the count of 3 the person in the back must try to kiss the other on the cheek while the person in front must avoid getting kissed! This turns into the cutest back and forth game that usually ends in tons of laughing.


TWO. BUMP HIPS

This is a great one that I like to start sessions off with. It’s super easy and gets couples moving and a bit more natural (even though they probably feel silly). I have them stand side-by-side, hold hands and walk toward me while bumping hips together every few steps. It usually takes a few tries to get it down but always creates great results.

THREE. WHISPER A JOKE

Now this one can be done standing or sitting. I’ll have the couples face each other and get real close and then I’ll ask one of them to whisper something funny into the other’s ear that will make them laugh. Yeah, yeah I’m basically putting them on the spot to come up with something but let me tell you –regardless if what they say is actually laugh out loud funny, a laugh will still happen no matter what.
