If you think about it, romantic wedding couple poses are actually an essential to any wedding! After all, you want your wedding album to be filled with nothing but killer photos, which means bringing your A-game when it comes to posing romantically with your partner. 

That said… posing can sometimes be a bit awkward, especially if you’ve never tried your hand at modeling ever. Of course, we’re not asking you to pose like you need to win America’s Next Top Model, but familiarizing yourself with some great romantic wedding couple poses would make the experience better!

So, to help you out, we’ve gone ahead and listed down our favorite romantic poses for couples, along with some reminders to help you stay on track.

Let’s get right to it!

The Classic Hand Hold

When it comes to romantic wedding couple poses, this is a tried-and-true classic that anyone can easily do. Just stand side-by-side and create a little space between you and your partner, and simply hold their hand! With this shot, you also have the option of looking far away to add some drama, or looking at each other’s eyes for an extra layer of romance! 

Pro-tip: Make sure you pose in front of a great backdrop to make your photo stand out even more!

The Classic Embrace

Here’s another romantic couple pose for a wedding: the classic embrace! Just stand face-to-face with your partner and give each other a warm hug. Bonus points if you really lose yourself in the hug and let the photographer just take lots of candid photos! 

Pro-tip: Closing your eyes and opting for more closer shots will capture the intimacy of the pose better!

The Whispering Moment

This one is also far from being tricky. Simply ask your partner to whisper something in your ear (like an inside joke that you both like!) and let the photographer capture your natural reaction to what they said.

Pro-tip: There are plenty of ways to capture this, but we suggest taking the photo from far away. Not only will this better frame the shot, but it will also help add an air of mystery around the couple, letting the viewer wonder what they’re whispering about!

When done right, the dip kiss is one of the best romantic wedding couple poses you can do!

The Overhead Shot

For this pose, simply find a spot to lie down and have your wedding photographer take an overhead shot of your faces while you’re close together! Just make sure the lighting is right to avoid any shadows on your face.

Pro-tip: Looking at the camera together will make the shot more intimate, while looking in opposite directions will add a flair of drama. Pick one, or do both!

The Hand-In-Hand Stroll

Nothing like a nice romantic stroll with your significant other, except this time there’s a photographer to capture the moment! To make the photo look more natural, pretend like there’s no photographer as well, and naturally walk together hand-in-hand. 

Pro-tip: It’s a stroll, so make sure the location is just as scenic! You can opt for the local hiking spots, garden, or even a beach. Extra, extra points if the photographer catches the bride’s dress flowing behind them in the wind!

Walking in a scenic view is also one of our favorite romantic wedding couple poses, especially at a destination wedding!

The Dip Kiss

Want your wedding photos to look like they’re straight out of a fairytale book (or a Disney movie)? Then go for the classic dip kiss. This one is easy: the groom just dips the bride for a kiss while he supports her back. It may take a few tries until it feels natural, but we swear it’ll be worth it! 

Pro-tip: Timing is crucial for this pose. So, make sure the photographer is ready and try to be as natural with it as possible!

The Piggyback

Hey, who says your romantic wedding couple poses have to be all serious and solemn? This should be fun, so why not try a fun pose: the piggyback! Not only will this add a much-needed air of playfulness on your wedding album, but it’s also a great reminder of how fun your relationship should be!

Pro-tip: Have the partner run around (carefully) while his bride is riding piggyback. This should make the whole thing more playful, and would give the photographer more opportunities to take candid photos that will look more natural than a fixed pose!

The piggyback is an easy way to add some fun in your wedding album!

The Ring Shot

Of course, you want plenty of smiling faces in your wedding album – but of course, you also want a great money shot of that new wedding ring! So, pose in a way that naturally shows off the wedding ring, and have your photographer zoom in to better capture all of its intricate details, as well as your hands together. 

Pro-tip: Don’t settle for just close-up shots. Instead, get creative with the hand placement and go for a mix of both far away and close-ups pictures.

The Dance Floor Moment

Ah, the first dance. Easily one of the most romantic moments in any wedding, especially if you’re both just lost in each other’s arms! This isn’t exactly a pose per se, but with the right photographer, you can get some really gorgeous intimate shots that you wouldn’t ever want to forget! 

Pro-tip: Use a slow shutter speed to capture the motion and create a dreamy effect of the way both of your bodies are moving. If the bride has a flowing gown, this effect would work well on that too!

Cute And Casual

Last but not least, just be casual about it! Relax, share a couple of jokes between you and your partner (even your photographer!), put your shoulder around your partner, and take some candid shots! It might not sound like it, but sometimes the more casual shots end up being the best of bunch!

Pro-tip: When taking casual photos like this, pick a spot where there’s plenty of vibrant lighting. This way, the photos, as well as your emotions and genuine reactions, will come out looking brighter and in turn, more inviting!

Reminders When Picking Romantic Wedding Couple Poses

Slow and relaxed

When taking photos that include any movement, make sure to take your time! Remember that it’s not a race, so slow down, enjoy the moment, and interact with your partner to make the shots look more casual and natural! 

Too Much Kissing 

You want neat and clean kisses for your photos! Additionally, turning your head to avoid squishing your partner’s nose is also recommended! 

Consider the Venue 

If you can, try to pick a number of venues! If not, then look for different spots in the venue to add variety in the photos. 

Timing is Key 

Plan for the right time of day to take advantage of natural light, especially during the golden hour if you want that trademark warm and romantic glow in your photos! 

Balance Posed and Candid Shots 

Strive for a balance between posed and candid shots. You don’t want all of your photos to be too solemn, but you also don’t want to be silly the whole time! 

Communicate and Comfort 

Before the wedding day, communicate with your photographer and relay all of your preferences to better prepare for the shoot. Not only will this avoid time-costly mistakes, but it will also help you and your partner feel more relaxed during the shoot!

Be Flexible 

Be open to spontaneous moments and unexpected opportunities. Some of the best shots happen when you least expect them.

Review Your Shots 

Periodically review the images on the camera to ensure you are getting the desired results. Of course, adjust your approach based on what is working well with the photographer! 

Have Fun 

Last but not the least, relax and have fun! The category, after all, is romantic wedding couple shots, so enjoy this moment with your partner and let the photographer do their magic behind the lens!
