Capturing candid moments is an art form that goes beyond staged poses and rehearsed smiles. One intriguing prompt that has gained popularity among photographers seeking authenticity is “Kiss with Your Teeth.” This unique concept encourages subjects to embrace their genuine emotions, resulting in raw and unfiltered photographs that tell stories words often fail to convey.
Decoding “Kiss with Your Teeth”:
The phrase “Kiss with Your Teeth” is not a literal command to bite your partner, growl at them, or use this time to showcase dental prowess. LOL (yes those are all examples of what people have thought it meant.) “Kiss with Your Teeth” is a more metaphorical, when your photographer gives you this prompt it means to smile with your teeth at your partner and try to go in for a kiss without puckering. Since the majority of subjects do not know what this means, they tend to bump into eachother or laugh too hard that it creates genuiene smiles and laughter. I’s about capturing moments that reflect genuine joy, laughter, passion, or any other emotion that resides within.

@courtneyferrantephotos POV: I tell my newly engaged couple to “kiss with their teeth…” this prompt is one of my favorite to use during couples, engagement, or even wedding photography. You get the strangest looks and laughs and they always make the best photo. Switching from poses to prompts was one of the best things I ever did for my photos ! #photographer#prompts#photographyprompts#weddingtiktok#engagementphotoshoot♬ original sound – Aedo
