At the beginning of the year I had A LOT of photographers reach out to me about working with and posing same-sex couples. It was exciting to know so many photogs want to work with these couples and offer their photography services to them but it was clear they were nervous about it and unconfident about posing them.
I’m not by any means an expert in the area of posing but I felt if people were reaching out to me for advice and knowledge I could do my very small part to help.
I picked out a stunning venue (The Pointe) so we could shoot inside (It gets ungodly hot in Kentucky sometimes), rented a few props and Brandi Potter (my co-host), wrangled up two gorgeous couples to model for us.
I broke the event into two parts: a shootout and workshop.
The Shootout was open for 2 hours to photographers who just wanted to work with the couples and build their portfolio. The Workshop was afterwards and was also 2 hours long where Brandi and I mentored photographers who left they were on the struggle bus when it comes to posing same-sex couples.
I think the biggest takeaway is you pose and prompt your LBGTQ couples just like your heterosexual couples. 🙂
