How to Get Unique Engagement Photos
You’ve booked your venue, your DJ, and your photographer. And now you’re thinking about your engagement photos. One of the top questions asked in social media forums is “where is a pretty place for my engagement photos?”. Time and time again I see this, and first, feel bad that the couple hasn’t reached out to their expert, their photographer. My next reaction is to give a list of my favorite parks. While all the pretty spots are… well pretty, they don’t mean anything to you. Let me help you get unique engagement photos. Not the same spot as all your friends, but somewhere that’s special to you.
Things to consider when planning your own engagement photo location…
- Is there a spot that is special to you? Somewhere you like to hike? a coffee shop you frequent?
- Where did you or your partner pop the question?
- Are you a home body that loves spending your time cuddled on the couch?
- Where was your first date? or a favorite date?
Most of these places may not SEEM like a “pretty place” to take photos, but they have meaning to you. When you look back years later, instead of just having a pretty picture, you’ll have a story that goes with it.
