Whether you want the photos to use for an engagement announcement in your local newspaper, on your Save-the-Dates or just as a great keepsake of this special moment in time, engagement photos are necessary but you’ll definitely regret not having at least a few in your memory box. But don’t go into the situation blindly. Try thinking about what you’d like the style and overall look to be, prepare yourselves and follow these quick and easy tid-bits before the day of the shoot arrives!
Choose a theme. Whether casual, seasonal, right at home or retro-styled, make sure to prepare your theme in advance.
Choose outfits. And along with that theme you’ll need to prepare some coordinating outfits. No, you don’t have to be kitschy and match but straying away from clashing outfits or two totally different styles will be key.
Make a list. You may want to sit down with your partner and make a list of must-have photos you want taken. Ring shots, prop ideas, whatever is important for you to have, jot down and give it to your photographer.
You can even find or make your very own checklist of poses to make sure to snag throughout the experience.
And it’s really all that simple. Do a bit of homework before the day of the photoshoot and you’ll be prepared for a day of fun that ends with a day of gorgeous memories to share with your family and friends!
