There’s nothing better than having a great photo booth at your wedding or special event. You and your guests are bound to have a night to remember — and those awesome photos will be on hand to constantly remind you! On the other hand, there’s nothing worse than getting all excited about jumping in front of the photo booth, only to completely freeze without any idea of what pose to strike. That ‘deer in the headlights’ look is not what you want, so it’s a good idea to start thinking about your favorite poses before you take the plunge.
Whether you’re sharing a romantic moment with your partner or being silly with your best friends, you’ve got to put your best foot forward if you want great pictures.
This guide to some of the most timeless open air photo booth poses will help you elevate your ‘snapshot game’ and create funny, ravishing, and magnificent pictures.
The Charlie’s Angels
You can’t discuss the best photo booth poses without mentioning the one that groups of ladies have been doing for decades. The Charlie’s Angels stance has gone down in history as one of the coolest and most kickass. All you have to do is stand with your backs pressed together and show off those guns.
A Kiss On The Cheek
An easy way to show some sweet affection to your best friend, close family member or partner in life is a quick kiss on the cheek.
Ah, this is pretty much one of our most popular poses towards the end of the evening. Everyone wants a picture with all of their very best friends. Luckily, our photo booths have no walls so you’re free to cram as many people as you want into the frame.
Most guys can’t get in a photo booth without flexing their muscles, but it’s positively encouraged, especially if you’re having a laugh with the boys at a party. Show the ladies what you’re made of, by bringing your boys together and showing off those guns.
Three Wise Monkeys
Everyone loves a famous pose reenactment, so try and copy your favorite art. For example the Mona Lisa smile, The Scream or in this case the three wise monkeys. Remember the more poses you do the better.
Lift your partner or give them a piggy back ride while the camera keeps on snapping the photos. If you’re one of the groomsmen, you can also work together to lift the groom up above your shoulders – safely of course! Have fun as you do this and let the camera do its job in capturing your genuine sweet smiles.
Off Duty Supermodels
Or, you could strike a pose better suited to the runway. Grab your girls and get your Vogue on. Stick your pout out as far as it will go – a la Kate Moss – and try your hand at being a catwalk queen.
This one takes a bit of coordination, but the idea is to time a perfect jump right before the camera snaps a photo. It’ll capture you and your group in mid-air which almost always delivers an epic shot.
You’ve got multiple shots, show us your best dance moves! This works really well with our animated GIF option. In each shot, complete a different step of the Running Man, Lawnmower, Macarena, The Carlton, The Robot, Thriller, Harlem Shake, Gangnam Style, you get the idea.
The Fake Fight
This is one of the most fun photo booth poses to create, because it involves a little bit of theatrical skill. You need to make this one as over the top as possible. So, think wind up (cartoon style) fists, seeing stars, and dazed expressions. If there is more than three of you, pair up and each have a ‘mini’ scenario to yourself.
