31 Awkward Prom Photos That Will Make You Miss High School


I’ve never seen a prom photo that wasn’t at least a little awkward. There are a lot of awkward prom photos that are just super embarrassing. But no matter how you look at it, any picture of two teens at prom is going to be uncomfortable to look at. The boy has that classic “hover hand” on the girls waste and they both look like they don’t know how to pose.

But you can hardly blame them. When you’re so used to taking selfies and hardly ever have anyone take pictures of you, posing for a prom photo is bound to be awkward. And let’s not forget, the theme of your prom has a lot to do with how awkward your photos are. If the theme is tacky, your photo is probably going to be embarrassing. But what’s even worse is the photo of you and your date before prom, taken by your excited mother. The whole time you’re thinking “Okay, mom, can we go now?!”

Take a look at some of these very awkward prom photos. Think back to your prom, if you went to it. I spared myself the awkwardness. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
