Engagement Photo Inspiration & Ideas
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Engagement Season!
If you are a newly engaged couple – yay, we are doing a little ‘Snoopy’ happy dance over here in your honor (let’s reserve the viewing of that for a later date) Getting engaged is the very beginning of your journey to be wed and cementing your new life together. It’s also a stone’s throw away from the utter chaos and madness of wedding planning (ps: we highly recommend you find an amazing wedding planner)
The modern day time frame from proposal to wedding day tends to be anywhere from 1 year to 18 months. There are so many firsts for engaged couples during that magical period of time, and a huge first for most couples is <drum roll>….. working with a professional photographer to have their photos taken.
Enter the engagement photo session. Engagement photo sessions can be included in your wedding photography package or they can be purchased a la carte (this will vary from photographer to photographer so be sure to ask before booking).
Engagement photo sessions are amazing for a few reasons! They can make you and your sweetheart a little bit more comfortable being in front of the camera and getting to know your photographer (and vice versa) before the big day, they can be a private celebration of your love before all of the pre-wedding celebrations begin, the photos themselves can be used for: save the dates, guest books, welcome tables etc. They can also set the tone for the unique style that you and your sweetheart are ready to create on your wedding day. Exciting right?!
Whatever your style may be – now is the time to own it, show it off, and share it with your friends and family!! If barefoot on the beach is your thing, go for it! If boho vibes on a mountaintop is where your love shines – embrace it. Eager to go glam in full formal attire? Rock it! There are no rules when it comes to your engagement photo session.
Still short on inspiration for your own shoot?
We have an amazing round-up of 15 engaged couples celebrating their engagement with 15 different wedding photographers who worked to their magic to help bring their couple’s vision to life.
See what outfits they chose, poses they rocked, locations they spotted, how they showed off their new bling and what is uniquely beautiful about each and every one of their love stories!
Get your Pinterest boards ready because you will want to save all of these amazing ideas for yourself!
