Isn’t it funny how no one ever seems to want their picture taken…until there’s a photo booth? Then, they can’t get enough of it!
But sometimes it’s hard to come up with new pose ideas, especially after you’ve visited the photo booth multiple times already. After all, you only have a few seconds between each picture (and sometimes there’s a lot of people to coordinate).
We’re so glad you found us!
At Photobooth Rocks, it’s our number one priority to make sure that everyone has a blast in the photo booth and ends up with amazing, silly, fun, gorgeous pics that will last a lifetime.
So here are a few posing tips to rock the photo booth!
30 Cute Photo Booth Poses
To help you avoid a bunch of blurry, unorganized photos, here are 30 cute photo booth poses to inspire you. And remember: the sillier, the better! (That’s one of our rules!)
1. Fake a Selfie
Lean in and extend arms toward the camera so it looks like you’re taking a selfie.
Hide behind another person or hold a prop in front of your face. You can either peek out or stay hidden, but if you can’t see the screen, make sure you have someone to tell you when to switch up your pose!
3. Do the Dab
And don’t worry about the photos looking ridiculous in five years…in 50 years, they’ll be quaint!
The classic pose that shows you have a secret.
5. Make a Heart
Use your hands to make a heart shape. For a cute couple pose, have each person make half of the heart.
6. Blow a Kiss
It’s a classic “red carpet” pose for a reason. (Just remember, this is different from “duckface.”)
7. Totem Pole
You need a certain number of people to pull this off, but it’s super fun if done right. Line up behind the shortest member of your group and align your heads so that it looks like they’re stacked like a totem pole.
8. Holding Hands
Face each other and hold hands. If you’re the newlyweds, have the officiant stand behind you and recreate your ceremony!
9. You May Now Kiss the Bride
Make a bride sandwich! Gather two friends or family members and have them both give her a kiss on the cheek.
10. Extreme Close-Up
Get as close as you can to the camera. This is best done with sunglasses on…those lights are bright!
Make a chain of people and walk past the camera as it’s taking pictures.
12. You May Now Kiss the Groom
Don’t leave grooms out of the fun! Steal the bridesmaids for a cute photo booth pose you’ll cherish!
You might not want it played at the reception, but it can make a cute pose lineup for four people.
Bring your drink into the booth (be careful not to spill!) and take a swig for the camera.
15. Show Off That Ring
There’s a dozen ways you can show off your bling! Stick up just your ring finger (like in the photo above), stick your left hand out and show off the ring to the camera, or make a surprised face and cover your mouth with your left hand.
Now that rock is front and center!
16. Tongues Out, Guns Out
This one is pretty self-explanatory…and shows off all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym.
17. Mustaches (duh)
Mustache-on-a-stick is the most popular photo booth prop for any gender. We have the photo evidence to prove it!
18. Cheesy Dance Pose
Revisit those cheesy dance studio portraits from your school years and strike a jazz or ballet pose.
19. Napoleon Dynamite
Remember that scene where Deb is taking Uncle Rico’s picture? Put your fist under your chin and imagine that you’re weightless in the ocean, surrounded by tiny seahorses….
20. Photo Bomb
Interrupt someone else’s photo for a fun candid moment. Their reactions will be well worth it!
Channel your inner supermodel and work that photo booth! The more ridiculous you try to be, the better it will turn out.
22. Fake Fight
Put up your dukes and pretend you’re settling an old grievance. If you want to get really creative, use the other photos in the series to tell a story.
23. Piggyback Ride
Hop on a (strong) friend’s back for a cute pose!
24. Bring a Crowd
25. Charlie’s Angels
With the new movie coming out, this is the perfect chance to show everyone what your squad is all about.
26. Look Anywhere But The Camera
Faces are so last decade. Look up, down, to the side, or turn around and face the backdrop.
28. Prom Pose
You know the classic “prom pose,” right? Where the guy stands behind the girl and puts his arms around her? The trick to doing this right is being as stiff and awkward as possible.
For an even funnier twist, have the guy and girl switch places!
29. See No Evil…
Grab your three closest friends and reenact the classic “see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil” pose. (Got a fourth friend who wants in? Originally, there was a fourth monkey sitting on his hands to represent “do no evil.”)
30. Super Cool
There’s literally nothing that says “cool” quite like sunglasses. Grab a pair for each member of your posse and show ’em you’re too cool for school.
More Photo Booth Pose Tips and Ideas
Here are a few more ideas to help you come up with some fun poses on your own!
1. Get Camera Ready
The best photo booth pictures are the ones you feel comfortable taking. So take a look in the mirror really quick and fix any stray hairs, lipstick stains, or broccoli in your teeth before you hop into the photo booth.
2. Try Different Facial Expressions
Let’s face it…you’ve been smiling for the camera since you were old enough to say “Cheese!” Try out a few different facial expressions for a unexpected and unique photo session:
3. Use the Props
Use those photo booth props covering the table to spark some creativity. Raise Thor’s mighty hammer over your head like a superhero. Wrap a feather boa around your neck and strike your best “diva” pose.
If you don’t like how your first set of photos came out, don’t sweat it. No one says you have to keep your photo and there are certainly no rules against taking another one!
Any one of these adorable photo booth poses would make an excellent addition to your photo album.
But don’t just try one…try them all! When you rent a photo booth with Photobooth Rocks, you and your guests have unlimited access to the booth for the entire rental period! We also include the backdrop, fun props, and an attendant to bring your party to the next level.
