Creative Couple Photos

I don't know if you ooh and ahh over the latest couples photography these days, but I do. Makes me wish I could go back to our dating/engaged days and capture it all in a whole new way. But, just because we are "old married folk", doesn't mean we can't act like newlyweds and capture some great moments of life in creative ways. 

Often times, it's planning how to pose for pictures that is the hardest. Having a plan of what you want is a good idea.  {Trust me, our biggest arguments usually occur during our annual couples photo shoot. Sad, but true. We are smiling, but we usually aren't happy for those few minutes..ha!}

So get your your camera, tripod, and favorite editing software ready.... here are:




Lauren from Busy Bee Lauren and her hubby on a picnic with a polaroid.
I really really really want a picture like this.



Hostess with the Mostess shows you how to MAKE this flashy little heart prop...this could be cool (and a little less "valentiney") in black & white, too!



This would be an AWESOME photo for any of you married/engaged college-goers or college alums! My friend, Rhiannon over at Hey Gorgeous featured this photo from Onelove Photography. In my case, hubby and I would both be holding true-blue BYU signs... :)


I-love this I-Phone Kiss... Did you even know there was such a thing? There is now. I found this HERE through SugarDoodle. There are other versions floating around the web in color...this was just my favorite!



Fairytale Photo...I think so. (found via Tumblr) And guess what? You can snap this one right in the middle of your Bookstore Date. And then you'll live happily ever after...



Barefoot & Fancy Free....  I really love how playful this picture is! If I couldn't see their feet on the ground, I'd think that their shadows actually are leaping into the air for a kiss... (source)



Groom Sold Separately spelled this one out for us, but it's an easy photo to take for yourself. Just grab your scrabble game and a mini tripod...oh, and while you're at it, how about a little Scrabble Date?



You can make each other happy, when skies are gray... How sweet is this? (super sorry...I have no credit to this photo? anyone want to help me out?)


My husband is always asking for pictures where we don't just "stare at the camera and smile". He would like this one from ISPWP Wedding Photos. It's gonna be a tricky one to shoot, though!



I looove photos that capture a real-life story about a couple. In my case, we'd have a bottle of Pepsi and a bottle of Coke side-by-side to showcase our our ongoing battle over which beverage is better. You can draw inspiration from many other sweet, fun-loving shots from Ashley Therese Photography.



...too cute for words --- from Candice K. Photography



From Post Cards & Pretties, this one's a little nerdy, retro, funky....and perfect!



You do the math. Brilliant photo found via Perfectly Practical Bride.



...this Sunset Smooch comes from my own collection of photos (yup, that's me and the Mr.) Sunsets are perfect opportunities for candid, lovey-dovey photos.



AND, finally....this one from sj2 photography, how simple and sweet with the ampersand prop! It's a perfect photo from engagement through 100 years of marriage to celebrate you & the one you love!


This photo session is over... time to start yours! Good luck!

Ahhh I totally feel the same way about our engagement photos! We took them 2 years ago and while they are amazing and some of my favorite photos, it was before the whole PROPS craze started popping up everywhere! Needless to say our annual "family/couple" photo shoots will be lots more fun! Thanks for the inspiration!! xoxo!

Cute couple. I love to see such photo and activities. I am crazy about scrabble and so happy to see you having good time with scrabble. Scrabble help is essential to win a game.

As I'm looking over these, I'm realizing that, to the best of my recollection, we don't have ANY kissing photos (except for our wedding shot).

But I'm also realizing that most of these have a very "light," playful feel, and that wouldn't capture US. (We CAN be silly/playful, but overall...I'm more intense than this and hubby is more of an introvert.) These would just feel "fake" if we did them - much as I enjoy them when someone else is in them.

Thanks for sharing such cute ideas! It was fun to see me and the hubby in one of the pics, too! (HWTM image: couple in the heart!)

These are really impressive. Whenever one find love, this is a great way to keep it. Never underestimate the power simple things can have on a relationship.

Here's a source on that rainy day photo; since you didn't know the source, I think it's fair to assume you didn't pay to use the photo and you're in violation of licensing agreements. Not everything on the web is free! Just a friendly heads up from a stock photographer - some of us rely on that income! :)
