Show it off...

Let your love {and personality} shine! Don’t hide it under an awkward ‘couple’ pose or a dreaded ‘prom pose!’ Explore the possibilities of different engagement photo shoot ideas. First, think of things that make your relationship unique. Did you bond over rock climbing or meet while tailgating at your favorite football team’s game one fall? Do y’all enjoy going to the beach or biking through the coastal neighborhoods along 30A? These types of things can help you set your theme.

Here’s a few things to consider when brainstorming your engagement photo shoot ideas:

  • Be unique. Don’t decide a theme just because it looked good on because your older sister and her husband did.
  • Be you. Are you adventurous and daring, or are you simple and reserved?
  • Location, Location, Location! Your location can enhance your engagement session theme. Pick a spot special to you and your fiancé.
  • What props are needed to enhance the theme? If your theme is just simple and delicate, maybe you are barefoot at a picnic beneath a willow tree with a flower crown and lemonade. Or, if your theme is based on sports, you might use jerseys, shakers and incorporate an action shot or two with in your session. Hey… there’s no limit here. Of course your engagement ring is the best prop there is and I like to make every effort to naturally highlight that new sparkler on your left finger within every engagement session.
  • Clothing. Colors can enhance the theme and the photos in a major way. Consider your theme when deciding what outfits the two of you will be wearing and coordinate accordingly.

The possibilities are endless so let your imagination run wild. Having trouble or need ideas? No problem, most photographers can help you brainstorm throughout this planning process to ensure your personality and uniquenesss shine through your engagement photos.
