Taking engagement photos is one of the best ways to document the entire process. Planning a wedding can be exhausting and taking engagement photos can bring the much-needed relaxation. This is also an opportunity to unleash your creativity. At the same time, taking these type of photos lets the couple learn more about their wedding photographer and vice versa. The photographer can learn more about the couple and what they really want when it comes to photography the more time they spend together. Even though professional photographers can provide suggestions about the best engagement photo session, we will present seven engagement photo ideas that may inspire you.
This is definitely one of the most beautiful parts in every relationship. The initial excitement and the effort to learn more about your partner are feelings that cannot be forgotten. That’s why it is a smart idea to go to the places where you dated and even wear some clothes that you used to wear back then if possible. If you remember this day because of the specific weather (for instance if it was raining), you can get some umbrellas and use sprinklers if you are taking photos on a sunny day.
The special place
Many couples have a special, exclusive place where they don’t go with other people (and we are not talking about the bedroom). It might be some hill or park where you used to visit alone. Visit this place and take some memorable engagement photos.
Athletic photo session
Do you love sports and fitness? If you and your partner are athletic types of people then you can visit the local gym and take some great photos. Don’t forget that you will need to dress adequately. You can also make an athletic outdoor photo session in case you usually use the local park for fitness activities.
Every person has specific interests and hobbies, but there is a great chance that both you and your partner share at least one hobby or activity that you find joy in. For example, maybe you both like baking cakes. If this is the case, ask the photographer to come to the kitchen and let them take some fun and interesting engagement photos.
Places abroad that you have visited
Do you remember the time when you enjoyed your holiday abroad? Well, it might be a good idea to visit that place again and take some engagement photos there.
A rustic ranch
Are you a fan of the countryside? There is no doubt that couples can take some incredible engagement photos if they visit some rustic ranch out of town. There is something about nature and the surroundings that make the photos special. In addition, the couple will feel completely relaxed and happy in these calm and peaceful areas.
Run from zombies
The last engagement photo idea is for the brave ones and those who want a completely different engagement photo session. You can use the help of your friends and turn them into zombies trying to catch you and your partner.
