This pose might be such a surprising one, because we have been conditioned to think it’s the man who is always giving the forehead kisses. Switch the roles to bring more playfulness into the setting and see how the couple interacts with eacch other.
This pose captures beautifully the warmth of love and the togetherness. Let your couple be nestled on a soft bed of grass, sharing their affection.
In this intimate moment the man is wrapping his arms protectively around his partner. Their connection is visible and the surrounding nature serves as a backdrop to their love story.
This pose speaks volumes about the depth of their bond and yet it is somehow very casual.
This couple pose is a great one and there are so many variations on the hug and so many ways to frame it too. When framed front on and looking at the camera, you can capture facial expressions. And to make it more intimate you can compose your couple on a surface where they can really embrace each other.

Moment captured in the car
In this intimate setting, a couple shares a tender moment in a vintage car. This pose can be done in various place, but the car can build a more elegant surrounding to it.
This pose is a silent conversation of love and understanding that needs no words. Their surroundings blur into insignificance as they embrace their love in each other’s gaze.
Lady and the tramp
Imagine a scene straight out of a classic love story—lover, side by side, sharing a plate of spaghetti.
Inspired by the ‘Lady and the Tramp,’ this iconic pose captures the essence of romance in the simplest form. It’s a great reminder that love can be found in the everyday. The simplest of daily things can work as inspiration for a pose like this.
Good morning sunshine
This arms around each other pose will capture connection and expression at the same time.
I like to have the man place his arms on the outside because this helps keep the woman looking smaller and the man more masculine. Having the woman join her hands to his in this pose will connect them even more. You can mix this pose up by having him kiss the top of her head or by having them look at one another.
You can also rearrange the roles to be even more playful like here, where the woman is the one hugging. The intimate setting brings a feeling of a special moment captured.
