The perfect pre-wedding shoot poses are those that are able to bring out the best of your individual personalities yet capture the love and story you share with each other. The main idea behind a pre-wedding photo shoot is to be able to capture some pure and happy moments shared by a couple. This photo shoot also allows couples to go crazy, experiment and just lose themselves in the moment.  

Now, it’s really important that you not just nail down on the perfect outfits and locations for your pre-wedding shoot, but also know the different kinds of poses that look great and enhance your couple story.

Let’s take a look at 20 different kinds of pre-wedding shoot poses that work like a charm:

1. Let’s run away...together


A picture such as this depicts a beautiful story of a couple wanting to escape the madness of the world, but together as a team. This will also bring out childlike emotions of playfulness and pure joy. You can create this pose at a beach, in the middle of a busy street or at any historical location like a fort.

2. Of swings and smiles


If you and your partner enjoy quiet moments of calm and love, a picture that presents serenity in each other’s company is what will work best for you. Just sitting together and staring at the skies or lost in one another will bring out the best in you. Using a swing, like in the picture above, adds an element of style to the picture.

3. Sky Gazing


Just lie down on your back and gaze at the open sky above you for a dreamy and romantic couple picture. This picture represents hope and endless opportunities that lie ahead, just like the vast and open sky. The rose petals are a bonus to add the touch of romance!

4. Cute and Colorful


This is one of the must-haves of pre-wedding shoot poses. Why lose a chance to steal kisses and make your woman happy? Choose colourful backgrounds for a quirky and adorable picture.

If you and your partner are fond of road trips and all things travel, then your pre-wedding shoot poses must definitely highlight that. Get in the car or on the bike and portray your love for travel. Your pet could be an added bonus here to show a ‘family’ picture.

10. Jumping in Love

This one takes a lot of practice and multiple shots. Jumping and smiling perfectly at the same time is not just a cool pose but also shows how your heart jumps with joy when filled with love.

11. Crazy Couple Shots

Love is about finding someone as crazy as you are and make sure your pre-wedding shoot poses capture and highlight that craziness too. Funny expressions, jumping jacks, playing together; anything that brings out the crazy stupid love feeling within.

12. Side by Side

If you are soon going to not just be man and wife but also pet parents, bring in your baby for pure and beautiful pre-wedding pictures. Nothing gets more beautiful than these family pictures.

14. Under my Umbrella

The rain, a shared umbrella, the light of love and two people madly in love - what could be better than that? You could experiment with different things like sparkles and glitter instead of rain and LED lit umbrellas instead of plain ones.

15. Shared Interests
