Happy Tuesday y'all! I'm literally obsessed with engagement sessions! So, I'm particularly excited to share some of my favorite prompts with you!
1. The Drunk Walk!
This is exactlky what it sounds like! You ask your clients to walk toward you or away from you and pretend they are drunk. This one can honestly be super comical! It is both fun and the best part; you get super genuine reactions. As a photographer, that is your main goal for your engagment session. If you are particularly nervous to work with a new client, this prompt is a great way to break the ice.
2. The Booty Bump
Very similar to our "drunk walk," the booty bump is all about getting a genunine reaction from your clients. There are very few things more satisfying than watching your clients belly laugh during their session. It's fun and whimsical in all the right ways. Did I mention how fun it is when your groom gets really into it?
3. The Nose Poking Competition
Okay, this one actually sounds really silly and can even sometimes become slightly agressive. BUT, again, it is so fun to watch your client's reaction to their future spouse. Here's how you prompt the "nose pointing competition..."
Ask your couples to hold hands while trying to touch the other person's nose. They will smile and truly laugh with this one. I'm personally slightly obsessed with this particular prompt.
I hope this Tuesday Tips/Tricks post finds you well and maybe even "prompts" you to get a little more creative with your couples during your next engagment session. I might not recommend a nose pointing competition on the couple's wedding day. BUT, for a cute sunset beach engagement session, have fun with it! This is a great way to get your clients involved in the session right away and break the ice before you pull out all the really "serious," nuzzle photos. Happy Tuesday y'all!
