On my way home from shooting a couple's engagement session, I realized I had used not just one but THREE movie references during the shoot to guide the couple into poses. Yes, I'm guilty of using chick flicks to explain photo poses...don't judge! ;)
Here's the movie references and when I use them:
Hitch - Go 90% of the way to a kissHitch is teaching Albert how to woo his dream girl and says you never go 100% of the way to a kiss.
I like to use this 90% reference to get couples nice and close, but not quite kissing. Sometimes, it's the moments right before you kiss that are most photogenic.
