This pose works best when you are having a bad hair day, don’t have a picturesque backdrop for your picture and no other angle seems to be looking good. Bonus point: this angle reduces your height difference and also makes you look slimmer (because we know the camera adds 10 pounds)!
2. The best moments are always candid
This is another cute pose to make the most out of a not-so-great setting. It’s close up, it’s candid and it’s heart-warmingly cute.

5. The one to make your single friends cry
Turn the front camera on and capture the perfect moment of romance. This pose is so beautiful and the timing of the click is so perfect that you will be showered with ‘awws’ from Instagrammers.
6. Kitchen selfie
It’s hot and cute, both at the same time. This is a perfect selfie to take when you are making breakfast together in the kitchen. And it’s also a great excuse to show off the curves you have got!
7. ‘We are going for a drive’ selfie
The most amazing thing about taking a selfie is that you can experiment with your body parts. Tattoos are not necessary, but it definitely adds a punch to your selfie. Couple poses in the car look hot. A drive in the rain or snow is an added bonus.
8. ‘Walk with me’ selfie
This time the girl needs to be the charmer for the ‘walk with me’ pose. For a selfie like this one, it’s important to have a good backdrop – a sunset (like in the picture above), seashore, or a picturesque cityscape.
The plus side of being a photographic PDA-obsessed couple is that you get to capture amazing moments of affection like in this one. Unkempt hair, crumpled bed sheet, nightshirts still on and flattering light that’s all you need to capture a moment like this one.
This is the best thing you can do on a lazy Sunday afternoon. You can ask a friend to capture this moment, or put your camera on self-timer mode and enjoy your privacy. Just make sure the light is complimenting and you have got enough pillows to make the bed look warm.
11. The Bollywood pose
Running through a field of yellow flowers or under the umbrella together in the rain a la Pyar Hua Ekrar Hua could be perfect Bollywood poses. Try the Pehla Nasha pose in a tea garden or take a tip or two from SRK and Kajol with swinging jackets and transparent chiffon. Just see the effect.
12. Food funda
You can be really creative with food. Clicking yourselves in front of your food plate at a restaurant is so passé. Try biting into the pizza or the super long dosa from both sides. The Lady And The Tramp noodle scene could be your thing too.
13. The lipstick mark
No need to show the entire face only the lipstick mark on your cheeks and her twinkling eyes in the frame would do. It’s gonna have all the impact you need on SM.
14. Try the reflection
It could be your reflection in a puddle in the rain or on still water of a pond or a lake. Click your reflection in the right pose. There can’t be a better couple selfie than this.
15. Create illusions
This is our favourite. Maybe you could take a bit of help from Photoshop or any other photo edit app and create the illusion of an upside-down room, you are eating her up or she is coming out of your hair. Giggles! We just love these.
By the river, by the sea at the top of the mountains where you witness an ethereal sunset or just on your terrace try the silhouette and see the effect. Our personal faves are the sunset positioned between a kiss or the heart created by the hands or a couple blending into each other.
17. Chase the shadow
If reflections work shadows do too. Just try chasing your own couple shadow with the camera and see how creative you can get. Let your shadow do the talking.
18. Finger-lockingly beautiful
Ever thought how your fingers and hands can convey all your feelings. Your fingers locked together or your hands just caressing each other can convey a lot of love.
19. The distant selfie
Walking in the woods? Let her just walk and you keep half of you in the frame and click that casual selfie. The woods would create the perfect backdrop. She is splashing in the sea and you are lounging on the sun lounger. Take advantage of the distance and the backdrop and click the most creative couple selfie.
20. Dressing room selfie
It doesn’t take much. You could be trying three new dresses at the store dressing room and he could be trying a few too. Click a few mirror selfies while checking out which one suits you best. It could be a lot of fun.
21. Couch selfies
The couch could be used as a great selfie corner with props like bright cushions, throws, the pet dog or even the tub of popcorn that’s sitting on the center table. Give an idea how an evening in looks like at home but do it creatively.
22. Under the same jacket
Umm… this could be really romantic. Pop in under the same jacket or even a bright nice shawl would do. Go click! Click! You will love it.
You could be in the sea, in the pool or standing under a waterfall. The splashing water couple pose can actually do wonders. Just make sure you got a waterproof cam out there.
24. Place showcase pose
When you are travelling you are keener to showcase the place. Use your creativity and keep the backdrop in mind when you click the selfie. The photos that come out are all for keeps. A great backdrop with the best couple poses can be a great combo.
25. The kitchen selfie
The colourful veggies, the spice in the wok, and the happiness of cooking, coupled with the best couple poses can give you the best selfies.
26. The gym pose
Sushmita Sen and Rohman Shawl really give us couple goals. They love exercising together and often post photos. Maybe you can’t be as adventurous as them but couples photos at the gym or while you are exercising or doing yoga look really ‘healthy’.
27. Show less
Just imply. This needs a bit of creativity but you can come out with the best couple photos this way.
A pair of legs with cycle wheels, couple embracing with the heads covered by a flowering tree, a kiss made invisible by a hat, these are some of our ideas.
28. Show off the couple tattoo
You can make a statement with your couple tattoo. Be a little innovative and showcase the tattoos with cute props. A cup of coffee, a heart-shaped cake are great ideas.
29. Exploit angles
Yes taking selfies at innovative angles can do the trick. Place the camera above or below or at any other interesting angle and see the result.
30. Trick with apps
You can use apps to make additions and alterations to your photographs and make it a work of art. Try out selfie poses for couples and then work on it with an app and see your friends swooning over it.
So here you have the best couple poses inspiration from the internet to recreate for your social media accounts. Remember, if you are unable to click a good couple selfie yourself, do not hesitate to ask someone to do it for you. Use a tripod if you can and remain as natural and candid as you can be.
