Picture Perfect Engagement Photo Tips
What better way to let your friends and family (and social followers) know that you’re tying the knot than with engagement photos? Engagement photos are not only fun to take, but also something you and your future husband will cherish forever.
While working out the details for your engagement photos may seem like a lot, don’t overthink it! Follow these engagement photo ideas and tips to take pictures that last a lifetime:
Choose Your Photographer Wisely
There are many photographers that specialize in engagement and wedding photos. Look through Instagram, Pinterest, etc. to see the different types of engagement photography styles out there and choose your photographer based off the work you like best.
Location, Location, Location
The location where you take your engagement photos will add a lot to the pictures, so try to choose a location that has a unique backdrop or setting. Many couples choose a location that has sentimental meaning, like a first meeting place or first date spot.
The main point of taking engagement photos is to show the world who you are as a couple. Some couples want romantic pictures while other couples want their pictures to be more animated. Either way, there’s no right or wrong answer!
Dress to Impress
You and your husband-to-be will have these pictures for a lifetime, so why not dress your best for the shoot? Consider an airy gown or tailored cocktail dress, and even look into suit rentals for your groom – it doesn’t hurt to add a fashion aspect to your photos!
Don’t Force Your Poses
If you’re not used to being in front of the camera often, you might tense up a little bit at first. Interact with your fiancé like you do on any given day so your engagement photo poses look authentic and natural. Also, choose a photographer that you’re both comfortable with and one that can help relax both of you for the photos.
Props Are a Nice Touch
Props can add a unique touch to the engagement photos. Many couples use props such as blankets, signs or even their pets! Utilizing props is just another way to show your personality as a couple.
Have Fun With It
The best part of engagement photos is seeing the happiness between the bride and groom to-be. Have fun with your fiancé and let your engagement bliss show through!
