Learn How To Pose For Instagram-Worthy Beach Pictures

Struggling with beachside photo poses? Try these tips and tricks instead!

Team ZZ

We appreciate vacations and going out much more post covid lockdown. Although documenting our lives has been part of our routine ever since cameras became portable, the lockdown has given us a newfound respect for going and exploring new places.

Capturing the moments has now become synonymous with Instagram. When it comes to Instagram, it eventually implies getting great, aesthetic pictures. While we have figured out the aesthetic with the golden hour, filters and organised mess, we still struggle to pose.

Nowadays, people are also so invested in pre-wedding shoots but the idea alone is not enough. You need an amazing photographer and a phenomenal list of beach photoshoot poses talking about your love frozen in time. We see the struggle, the need to stand out and not be just-another-pre wedding-shoot.

So for your next vacation or pre-wedding shoot, especially a beach getaway, we have shortlisted some amazing beach photoshoot poses that can enhance your Instagram game.

Sand on the beach is an ideal plaything for kids. You can use it too. Just not to play but to pose with. Go wild, throw some sand around and do a beach photo pose. And chances are, you will hardly make a mess, a statement? Definitely!

8. Classic one-leg front

You have done this pose a lot of times. In front of a famous building or a pretty mural. Why leave the beach then? Do it in front of the ocean the next time you are there.

  • Don’t cross your legs while doing a photo pose on the beach. This makes you look nervous or cautious. Confidence is always the key.
  • Always arch the back. Don’t bend as it will make your pose sloppy.
  • Let your hands lose just like the beach breeze around you.
  • Chin up so that your face is well-framed and captured.
  • Lastly, try to keep your eyes open as the sun might make you flinch. You can try sunglasses or a beach hat.

If you are doing this much research, we would want to emphasise the outfit too as that is the second star of the picture. 

1. Bohemian beach outfit

1. Cover-ups

A cover-up is a great way to protect your skin from the sun and add some style to your beach look. If you are shy about showing too much skin, they are great options. You can try some cover-up options like kaftans, sarongs, and translucent maxi dresses.

2. Sun hats 

A wide-brimmed hat is a great way to protect your face and hair from the sun. Choose a hat that compliments your outfit and provides ample shade. On top of that, a great beach prop to pose with.

3. Sunglasses 

Sunglasses are a must-have accessory for any beach vacation. You can save yourself from sun glare and add glamour to your outfit. 

4. Sandals

Sandals are a great option for the beach, as they are easy to slip on and off and can handle sand and water. Look for sandals that are comfortable and durable.

5. Beach bag

A beach bag is essential for carrying all of your beach essentials, such as sunscreen, sunglasses, and a towel. Look for a bag that is spacious and easy to carry.

This is everything on how to pose for beach pictures. But if you are looking for a more traditional way to go about this, especially for a pre-wedding, these saree poses for a photoshoot are your best bet!
