Engagement Photo Tips

  1. First and foremost, find an excellent photographer — and one who makes you feel comfortable. You may be asked to strike poses that make you feel silly or self-conscious as you’re being photographed. You need to trust that whomever you hired is steering you in the right direction.
  2. Determine where the photographs should take place. A seasoned photographer will make suggestions. You could showcase some of the cool landmarks of your city or some of its quirkier aspects. Or, you can opt to tell a story with your engagement photos.
  3. Embark on the extremely important decision of what you’re going to wear.Talk to your photographer about this as well. Try to resist the urge to play it safe with your outfits. Fun ensembles usually result in fun photos. Or bring more than one outfit: Something classic and safe, and another that’s funkier.
  4. For you fellows, if you begin to wonder, How did I get here? as you gaze into your fiancee’s eyes while a photographer snaps away, you’ll enjoy this post on the 8 rules of engagement photos written by a guy who wondered the same thing.

  1. I love engagement photos.It’s a great way for the couple to get to know their photographer and for the photographer to get to know the couple. It often helps the groom who tend to be more camera shy to relax more during the wedding day photos and the photos on the wedding day turn out more creative and natural.
