Isn’t it funny how no one ever seems to want their picture taken…until there’s a photo booth? Then, they can’t get enough of it!
But sometimes it’s hard to come up with new pose ideas, especially after you’ve visited the photo booth multiple times already. After all, you only have a few seconds between each picture (and sometimes there’s a lot of people to coordinate).

30 Cute Photo Booth Poses
Here are some tips to help you avoid blurry photos and unorganized photos. 30These cute photo booth poses will inspire you. Keep in mind: The sillier the better (That’s one of our rules!)
1. Fake a Selfie
Lean in and extend arms toward the camera so it looks like you’re taking a selfie.
You can hide behind someone or keep a prop in front. You can either peek out or stay hidden, but if you can’t see the screen, make sure you have someone to tell you when to switch up your pose!
Nothing says “2020” like a photo of you and your squad dabbing! This is a great idea for graduation parties or school dances.
And don’t worry about the photos looking ridiculous in five years…in 50 years, they’ll be quaint!
This is the classic pose that reveals your secret.
5. Create a Heart
Make a heart shape with your hands. Make a couple pose by having each person take half of the heart.
6. Kiss a Kiss
It’s a classic “red carpet” pose for a reason. (Just remember, this is different from “duckface.”)
7. Totem Pole
You need a certain number of people to pull this off, but it’s super fun if done right. Line up behind the shortest member of your group and align your heads so that it looks like they’re stacked like a totem pole.
8. Holding hands
Face each other and embrace. If you’re the newlyweds, have the officiant stand behind you and recreate your ceremony!
9. You can now kiss the bride
Make a sandwich of brides! Get two close friends or family members together and give the bride a kiss on both cheeks.
10. Extreme Close-Up
As close as possible to your camera. This is best done with sunglasses on…those lights are bright!
Make a chain of people and walk past the camera as it’s taking pictures.
12. You may now kiss the Groom
Don’t leave grooms out of the fun! Steal the bridesmaids for a cute photo booth pose you’ll cherish!
It might not be something you want to hear at your reception, but it could make a cute lineup for four.
Take your drink to the booth, but be careful not to spill it! You can also take a sip to capture the moment for the camera.
15. It’s time to show off your ring
There’s a dozen ways you can show off your bling! You can show your bling by sticking up your ring finger, as in the photo above. Or you can surprise the camera and cover your mouth with the left hand.
This rock is now front and center!
16. Tongues out, guns out
This one is pretty self-explanatory…and shows off all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym.
17. Mustaches (duh)
Mustache-on a-stick is a popular prop for photo booths. We have the photos to prove it!
18. Dance pose for a cheesy dance
Re-visit your school dance studio portraits and try a jazz or ballet pose.
19. Napoleon Dynamite
Remember that scene where Deb is taking Uncle Rico’s picture? Put your fist under your chin and imagine that you’re weightless in the ocean, surrounded by tiny seahorses….
Interrupt someone else’s photo for a fun candid moment. You will be rewarded with their reactions.
You can channel your inner supermodel to work the photo booth! It will be more fun if you are crazy than usual.
22. Fake Fight
Put up your dukes and pretend you’re settling an old grievance. To tell a story, you can use other photos in this series.
23. Piggyback Ride
Hop on a (strong) friend’s back for a cute pose!
Our Digital, Mirror, and Open Air booths can accommodate a larger group. Get in and take a new family picture!
25. Charlie’s Angels
The new movie is out and this is your opportunity to show everyone who you are.
The face is so last decade. You can look up, down, to one side or face the background.
Whether you’re at a wedding, bar mitzvah, or holiday party, being in a photo booth means having a reason to celebrate! Hip hip hooray!
28. Prom Pose
You know the classic “prom pose,” right? This is where the guy puts his arms around the girl while he stands behind her. This is the trick to making it look as awkward and stiff as possible.
You can make it even more fun by having the girl and the guy swap places.
29. See No Evil…
Grab your three closest friends and reenact the classic “see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil” pose. Have a fourth friend? Originally, there was a fourth monkey sitting on his hands to represent “do no evil.”)
30. Super Cool
There’s literally nothing that says “cool” quite like sunglasses. Grab a pair for each member of your posse and show ’em you’re too cool for school.
