If you’ve spent any time on social media you’ve probably heard someone reference their Instagram Husband. This is the poor guy behind the camera that takes endless pictures, from countless angles in pursuit of the perfect Instagram photo. But what’s a single girl to do without an Instagram husband?!? Find one of course!
*A willingness to eat cold food on our date because of course the food will need to be photographed from multiple angles. And once you take a bite you can’t get back the original presentation!
*A willingness to get gifts early or late, depending entirely on when a company sends them.
*A willingness to take endless photos until the correct photo-composition is achieved.
*A willingness to check for crooked eyelashes and/or hairs out of place…between each photo.
*A willingness to hold props in just the right position for whatever amount of time is needed to take the photo.
*A willingness to rearrange furniture for optimal lighting and balance in photos.
*A willingness to plan vacations around the destinations and brands I am partnered with at the time.
*A willingness to take pictures in random places, even if other people give us strange looks.
*A willingness to arrive early and/or stay late at events and locations in order to capture photographs without all kinds of other people
*Be tall. Because quite simply the most flattering angle is from above. Therefore I need any potential boyfriends and Instagram husbands to be tall enough to take pictures at this angle. (If a candidate meets all of the other requirements but is not tall, I am willing to accept a willingness to always carry a ladder.)
My sister does a great job filling this position when she’s in town but since she lives out of the country most of the year I’m looking for a more permanent person. Since it might be difficult to find the perfect Instagram husband, I’m willing to consider an Instagram cousin, neighbor, or unemployed and adoring friend. Is there anything else you would recommend adding to the list of qualifications? And if you’ve found the perfect Instagram husband, give them a shout out below!
