Instagram Captions for Selfies

I personally find selfies challenging to caption because I always want something cute and clever, but also don’t want it to seem like I’m trying too hard. I think this is common when trying to come up with Instagram captions for selfies, so that’s why I chose the options below. 

A lot of these Instagram captions can be altered a bit so they match up better with whatever you’re doing and they’re not only good for one type of picture. 

Another fun way to caption a selfie is to use a bunch of different emojis. One way of doing this is to have monochromatic emojis. For example, if you’re wearing an all white outfit, search “white” in the emoji search bar and choose five of your favorite options. 

  1. lil close up
  2. me again!
  3. _____ is my name and ____ is my game
  4. a casual walk through the parking garage
  5. this wind you guys, is it necessary?
  6. new ____, new selfies (ex: apartment, car, etc.)
  7. lazy monday (or whatever day of the week it is)
  8. oh hi…
  9. find me here drinking coffee all day
  10. hiiii friday (again, whatever day of the week it is)
  11. in my element
  12.  yes I took this with self timer
  13. I refuse to believe summer is over
  14. takin it easy
  15. drink your water and mind your business

Best Instagram Captions for Couples

Okay, so we all know a couple that posts pictures together all the time and has the most cringey captions. Obviously no one wants to be “that couple”, so that’s why I came up with the best Instagram captions for couples that are really simple and cute but don’t make people cringe when they read it. 

I have found that when it comes to Instagram captions for couples, it’s best if they’re simple and not too “lovey dovey.”

  1.  my person
  2. you give me 🦋
  3. date night (add an emoji that relates to what you’re doing)
  4. it’s the never-ending laughs/smiles for me 
  5.  you make my 🌎 go round 
  6. paradise found.
  7. I fell in love when you laughed at my jokes
  8. all mine
  9. your #1 fan
  10. will you accept this rose? (for all my bachelor/bachelorette fans 🤪)
  11. having the best time with my other half
  12.  game over.
  13. playing for keeps
  14. never tired of you
  15. eyes on you

Instagram Captions for Travel

We all post an obnoxious amount of pictures when we’re on vacation which is why we need lots of caption options to switch it up.

Again, I find that most people like simple captions so that’s what I went for with these Instagram captions for travel as well. There’s some beachy options and some other options that work whether you’re at the beach or not.

  1. checked this off my bucket list
  2. raise your hand if you feel personally attacked by seaweed
  3. 📍 “location”
