5 Easy Fixes for Common Posing Mistakes

Small details can make or break the effectiveness of a pose when photographing couples. Here’s a 6-minute video in which wedding photographers Sara Byrne and Phil Chester share 5 simple spot corrections that take poses from plain to pro.

Here’s a quick rundown of the 5 tips (watch the video for the explanation of each one):

#1. Ol’ Stiff Legs. A tip that solves the problem of locked knees and standing too stiff.

#2. Sitting 101. A tip that solves the problem of people (mostly guys) not knowing how to sit on the ground.

#3. Missed Connections. A tip that solves the problem of hands being hidden instead of used.

#4. The Ol’ Choke Hold. A tip that solves the UFC choke hold when one person is standing behind the other.

#5. Get Tangled. A tip that solves the problem of the prom gap.

Byrne and Chester recently also created a popular video showing a selection of the best wedding and engagement poses in just 2 minutes. You can find more of the duo’s videos by subscribing to their YouTube channel.
