We show that light evolution occurring in waveguide arrays with a particular n-functional square root dependence of coupling coefficients can be used to produce classical analogues of nonlinear quantum coherent states. Using operator algebras we obtain closed-form expressions describing the optical field dynamics in such structures. In addition, by numerically monitoring the Mandel's parameter, we obtain the conditions necessary to generate sub-Poissonian and super-Poissonian classical intensity distributions in the proposed photonic lattices.
