Posing Guide for Couple Portraits

Think about something for a second. Just how often does a couple play the leading role, or at least a supplemental role, in your photography? From engagement photos to wedding photos to family portraits, to maternity and newborn photos and beyond, you're bound to have a pair of people standing in front of you ready for you to click away. 

In short: Couples are the bread and butter of the photography biz, and knowing how to photograph a duo is imperative to your success. That's why we're so excited to announce our Posing Guide for Couple Portraits, a super in-depth collaboration between BP4U and acclaimed photographer Beth of ENV Photography.

The Posing Guide for Couple Portraits covers it all. And then some! You'll get a rundown on camera gear and equipment, finding clients, scouting locations, and prepping for your sessions. From there, we cover working with couples in a comprehensive fashion.

If you photograph couples -- and we know you do -- this is one of the best guides you can purchase. Up your game NOW, photog!

    Are these posing cards printable?

    Yes. We include digital files in both high and low resolution - high res for printing and low res for mobile devices. These will print these off as a 4x6. Many of our clients will print these off, punch a hole in them, put a ring on them and put them in their camera bag. Makes a great way to get out of a bind if you're having a brain freeze during a session. Need help loading your posing cards to your iPhone/iPad/iPod? Click here for a tutorial.

    Can I print this guide?

    Yes, you most certainly can! If you'd prefer to read your guide in print instead of digitally, feel free to print this guide for your own personal use.

    I keep getting errors when I try downloading the guides. How can I fix this?

    No problem. Try copying/pasting the link into a new tab. If that doesn't work, try using a different internet browser. (I.E. if you're using Internet Explorer try switching to Safari or Google Chrome to download the links)
