Rewind a few years, and your online search for engagement photo sessions would be somewhat limited. Couples were concerned with perfect wedding day photographs, not pre-wedding snapshots. Though not all couples can afford the luxury of an elaborate photo shoot, for those who can, the options are endless. Our favorite facet of these sessions? They allow for endless creativity and aim to express the couple as more than a black tux and white gown.
We’ve named 10 easy themes for your engagement photos and given you examples and tips on how to achieve the looks.
People have weddings on the beach, so why not have a photo session there? We’ve seen everything from bathing suits to gowns matched against the sand, and we have to say, the ocean has a funny way of making everything look better.
There’s something very romantic about two people in love exploring uncharted areas together. You don’t have to pose in hiking boots; balance the beauty of a gorgeous outfit with a striking outdoor setting.
You know the saying “Real men wear pink”? The phrase applies pretty well to these photographs. If you’re a lover of the color and your guy is willing, why not have an ultra-femme photo theme?
The nice thing about rustic photos is that they don’t necessarily have to be taken outdoors to feel a bit countrified. Put simply, this theme is all about the proper mix of glamour and nature.
Most often minimalistic, modern photographs like this one contrast the joy of the couple against oblique city canvases, in turn emphasizing the human element. We love that all the attention is driven to the subjects rather than the background setting.
