Many creative photographers have come up with countless pre-wedding concepts. So many that it would probably take you forever to decide on one! (We totally feel you!)

But wait! (cues the ugly screech of doom) “How on earth am I going to pose?” your inner voice whispers at you. Dun, dun, dun! While you’re mostly in sync with your partner, posing in front of the camera is totally a different experience and it’s okay to freak out.

Well, honey, you have come to the right place! We give you 10 Swoon-Worthy Couple Poses Ideas for Pre-Wedding Shoot!

6. The Gaze

The eyes are the windows to the soul and gazing into the soul of your partner is very intimate. Lock your gaze with him and feel his love and warmth. A smile would tug on your lips without a doubt.
