How to Take Prom Pictures

I’ve taken a handful of prom pictures in the past, so I wanted to share some tips for how to make the process go smoothly.

  1. Make sure the entire group and their parents knows what time to meet. Lots of people will take prom photos at individual houses and then get together as a group.  To save time, everyone should all meet at the same time, take group pictures, then separate to take individual prom pictures of couples (or vice versa).
  2. Don’t just do the boring traditional poses, take some fun group photos also. Get into silly posing and ask the teens for their ideas as well!
  3. Have one designated photographer for the group, and share pictures after. That way you can spend the time on taking couple photos with each set of parents if they are there also.

Prom Couple Pictures

Here are some favorite poses for prom couple pictures. I love to do something more than the same old stiff smiling/looking at the camera, so I like to try to get the teens to have some fun.
