Congratulations on your engagement! Now that you’re ready for your engagement photo shoot, allow us to give you a few practical suggestions to help make your time in front of the camera with your beloved a fun and delightful one. In our many years of being a wedding venue in Atlanta, we’ve amassed quite a trove of information about weddings. When it comes to your engagement photo session, the practical guide below should get you started on the right foot.
If you scheduled your photo shoot during autumn, you have Mother Nature herself providing you with an excellent background for your engagement pictures. By all means take indoor shots for variety, but do take advantage of the colors of the season to make your pictures burst with life and energy.
Choose a Theme
Having an overarching theme for your photo shoot helps you decide on your outfit, accessories, location, props, etc. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate one, but do make sure the theme you choose reflects your personality as a couple.
You don’t have to wear matching outfits, but clashing colors and styles may detract from the quality of your pictures. Choose a color palette that works well for both of you and build your outfits from there.
Don’t shy away from using props for fear of turning your photo shoot into a kitschy affair. Select items that have a special significance for both of you so your pictures will be more personal and meaningful.
Heat It Up
While your pictures don’t have to take on the character of a boudoir shoot, don’t hesitate to show signs of affection toward your spouse-to-be. Hold hands, embrace, kiss – let your friends and family know you delight in each other’s company and invite them into your relationship via your engagement photos.
Choose outfits and accessories that let you be yourself. Engagement pictures are less formal than wedding photos, so feel free to let more of your personality show. If you and your intended are having fun, the pictures will show it, and you will have something to remember your early days for the rest of your life together.
