5 Go-To Poses for Couples | CSC Photography - Information | Southwest Virginia Photographer


When I work with couples, one of the most common concerns I hear is, “We have no idea what to do in pictures. Will you help us with poses and what to do?”

My answer is always a resounding “YES!”

Part of my job as a photographer is making sure you are comfortable and looking good in front of the camera, and that comes with an enjoyable photographic experience complete with easy to follow posing instructions! I am specifically trained to make sure you don’t look awkward in front of the camera, even if you think you can’t take a good picture!

In this blog post, I am teaching you some of my favorite poses for couples that you can use in your session with me, or even the next time you take a picture on your iPhone! Gone are the days of not knowing what to do when the camera is on you!


The secret to posing to foot position! There are only so many ways your feet can go, and those are what make different poses. Everything else is just a variation of that basic pose! Here are some of my favorites.


1) Facing One Another (Chest to Chest)

In this pose, feet are pointed toward each other, and the couple is chest to chest or facing each other.
