Up your Instagram game by following these tips...

Choosing the right pose is half the battle to achieving an ultra adorable Instagram couple pic. The other half boils down to technical stuff, such as lighting, angles, and filters:

  • Lighting is essential. Ideally, you should snap pics using natural light. If you're taking pics inside, then take them facing a window.
  • Downplay shadows. Make sure shadows aren't cast across your faces. To avoid this, snap pics either at sunrise or sunset.
  • Choose your filters wisely. Some of the best Instagram filters include Valencia, which makes everyone super hot and dreamy.
  • Take lots of pics. This way, you'll end up with a few great photos to choose from. Be sure to change your angles and expressions for variety.
