Taking pictures with your friends or date can be one of most memorable parts of prom night. Choosing the right location is easy if you follow the tips below.

Inside: If you have a staircase available, you might want to take photos inside. The classic scene of the girl in a beautiful dress descending the staircase to meet her date makes an elegant photo. Even if you don’t have a staircase, you can take a photo in the center of a walkway or somewhere with plenty of light. The inside photo option is also good if it is raining or bad weather.

Outside: Taking photos outside can be a bit more risky. The weather can either make or break a prom photo or maybe even ruin your outfit. However, despite being a delicate place to take photos, you will get a good background if you have some greenery. The natural lighting will add a beautiful element to your photos that you won’t get if you take your pics inside.

How to take them
Hands: When couples take prom photos holding hands, a lot of times they look like a shrimp cocktail. To avoid that, it is suggested by pro photographers that you take a photo with your hands touching, but not interlocking.

Background: Choose a clean background for your photo. It puts the focus on you and your group, and not on what is going on behind you. If you take a photo outside, choose a background of trees or greenery.

Posing: You can choose a traditional standing photo, which is completely fine, but you can also choose something more creative that adds a story to your picture. The most important thing is to have fun.

From a different angle: Taking a photo from a higher point of view can create a dreamy effect to the picture, whereas if you take your pictures from the waist, it will display entire outfits and a better view of everyone’s attire.
