The Eskimo kiss pose is easy to create. Just touch your nose with your partner and rub them together. You can even hold your hands together. The low camera angle is favorable for this pose. For creating some cinema-worthy photo looks, we recommend a net saree for the lady to flaunt her flowy end fabric for this shot. 


Dancing around is what you want to do when you are with your companion. Away from troubles and away from the city, in your own La La land. The waltz is one of the classic silhouette poses you should definitely add to your list. Just twirl your beloved around you under the sun or in fact under the moon and the results will definitely be in your favour.

Casting shadows with colorful lights creates a unique contrast in the photographs giving your picture some pop. Introduce the source of light in parallel to your height behind your back and hold your partner pecking her forehead. You can even introduce some props as per the location you are preferring in order to add some detail to your photographs
