Top Things to Know before Your Engagement Photo Shoot

Getting engaged is such a huge moment in anyone’s life! It’s not about the ring – it’s about the commitment and the declaration of love. It’s about bringing two families together and the beginning of your wedding planning process (which, by the way, is bound to be one of the most unforgettable days of your entire life). 

Of course you want to celebrate the engagement and capture the joy and beauty of the moment to be remembered forever! And what better way to do this, other than by hiring a photographer to take wonderful, candid photos for this special life event?

What are some of the top things you should know before your engagement photo shoot, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

•  Choose a nice location. It doesn’t have to be Paris – it can be a place that just looks nice, or, even better, a place that has some sort of significance for you (the park where you took a walk for the first time, the place where he proposed to you, etc.).

•  Coordinate your outfits – with each other and with the location. Planning to do the engagement photo shoot in a very elegant place? Wear something that looks well with that location. Planning to do a walk in the park for your engagement photos? Wear something cute, but not over the top. And yes, you outfit should be coordinated with your loved one’s, but that doesn’t mean you have to wear 100% matching colors – it just means that they should pertain to the same general style and dress code.

•  Enjoy this. Don’t stress too much over it – let your happiness and your excitement shine through. Yes, it’s a big moment, and yes, you might not be used having a camera follow you around. Yet, at the end of the day, this photo shoot is meant to capture your joy, not the stress you feel thinking of the camera (plus the thousand-and-one things you have to plan for the wedding).

•  Hire a good photographer – preferably, the one you plan on hiring for the Big Day as well. Hiring your wedding photographer for an engagement photo shoot will allow you to get to know him before the actual wedding day, and it will allow you to see if their photography style and work style suit you.
