These 7 engagement session prompts for authentic photos help our couples look their best AND create opportunities for genuine interaction. They’re part of the game we created that we play with our couples during their engagement session, and they work every time!
Each card sets the couple up strategically in a flattering position, and then has them interact in a way that creates a genuinely romantic or fun moment. Give them a try!
Hug each other as tight as you can. His hand closest to the camera is cupping her cheek (under her hair) and he is gently stroking her cheek with his thumb. He’s whispering into her far ear different qualities he loves about her. Then after a couple minutes, she takes a turn whispering.
She’s sitting between his legs on the ground. You’re all cozy, squeezed in tight, touching as much as possible. This is the last time you’ll see each other. What do you want to say?
Let’s Grow Old Together
Face each other, holding each other’s hands. Think about how those hands will serve you as you get old. How they’ll hold your babies. Kiss them. Tell each other what you’re most excited for in the future.
What Does The Fox Say?
Hug each other as tight as you can. She’s looking down at the ground next to her (toward the camera) and he’s making fox sounds in her ear.
She’s sitting between his legs on the ground. You’re all cozy, squeezed in tight, touching as much as possible. He’s trying to impress her with all the animal sounds he knows, and she’s trying to impress him with how high she can kick her feet.
The Sway And Kiss
He’s behind her, your fingers are intertwined and his arms are wrapped around her. Your sides are toward the camera. Sway toward and away from the camera. He’s giving her slow kisses from her shoulder to her neck.
Hug each other as tight as you can, and waddle like penguins in a big circle, with the occasional peck on each other’s necks and shoulders.
We use a three part strategy with our couples so that we can effortlessly deliver a consistent experience and gallery. Part of that strategy is disarming our clients by playing a game with them. Learn more about what we do here!

It’s important to us that we use engagement session prompts for authentic photos so that our couples can actually be themselves and love the photos we capture. We hope this is helpful for you and you can use these too!
