You’re officially engaged & eye-balls deep in your wedding planning. You might be thinking about scheduling engagement photos (you totally should – here’s why!). But first…

So, how do you take amazing engagement photos?

There’s no one answer to this. But, luckily, there are some things to consider that can help!

Here’s what to keep in mind to make sure you get amazing engagement photos!

  • Location. This isn’t everything, but it’s a great place to start. Talk with your photographer about your vision – they’ll surely have some beautiful recommendations for you.
  • Which brings us to: choosing the right photographer! Research photographers. Look at their public reviews & style (websites & social media are great for this!) – you can even ask to see full galleries. If you love their style, reach out to see if you love them! You want to feel comfortable & have fun together. You’ll know quickly if you vibe! Maybe this will help.
  • Attitude! Show up ready to play. To laugh, to cuddle, to HAVE FUN. That’s the whole point of your engagement session, after all – to have fun. If you can shake off the nerves and just let yourselves be together, you’ll get amazing engagement photos!
  • Plan something special! What do you love to do together? Include it in your engagement session! Your favorite board game, a stop for beers, a small picnic, your beloved Jeep. Whatever it is, make it you!
  • Finally – get amazing engagement photos! It’s really as simple as that. When all the pieces come together, it’s a beautiful thing!
