Engagement photos are a great way to get to know your photographer and get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. You can use the photos as part of your guestbook, on save-the-dates or thank you cards, or on your wedding website. Check out our tips to taking great engagement photos:
Pick the right photographer: You’ll want to have the same photographer who is photographing your wedding shoot your engagement portraits. Ask to see examples of engagement photos your photographer has shot in the past to get a sense of his or her style. Look for a variety of locations and poses in your photographer’s portfolio – you want your engagement photos to suit your style, not someone else’s. And of course, make sure you get along with your photographer and feel comfortable around him or her.
This was a gorgeous vintage style shoot at the Hill Garden in London. Adore the different veils the model is wearing, and the accompanying gowns. Thanks to CMcDade Photography for sharing another stunning photography session!
This idea is so fun! And it doesn’t have to just be for those of you waiting to ask the “will you marry me” question. This is a fun idea if you and your fiance want to do a photo shoot, post engagement, so you have those pictures forever. And it is Valentine’s Day, so even just inspiration for a romantic picnic in the park (if you’re in a warm part of the world), or a picnic on the floor of your living room! Either way, we loved this and had to share! Happy Day of Love Everyone!
This couple’s photo session makes me smile! This couple has so much love and affection towards each other, and it shows in these photographs. Plus, when you can find a location as beautiful as this one, it adds to the amazing-ness. Thanks to Summer Jean Photography for sharing!
We wanted to share this wedding because of the very unique Hollywood-Style shots of the bride and couple. The use of solid, dramatic, colors and artistic black and white dressing room shots works perfectly with the brides vintage vibe and makes you feel like you’re getting a sneak peek into the dressing room of a Hollywood Star!
