Getting engaged is one of the best moments of someone’s lifetime. What better way to remember it than capturing the moment in photos? An engagement photo shoot is the best way to remember the love between you and your significant other for years to come. Here are a few tips we’ve come up with to help you get the most out of the shoot.
It is totally understandable that taking pictures with a photographer you don’t know too well can be uncomfortable. But remember, they love their job and they are not judging you at all. Their focus is to capture stunning photographs, they work with what you got! These photographers want to capture you for who you are. Plus, years down the road you want to know that those pictures were genuinely filled with your love.
Wear an Outfit You’re Comfortable In
Comfort is key when it comes to your engagement shoot. Without feeling comfortable and confident in your outfit you won’t enjoy taking your photos. Feel your best and the photographs will be stunning.
Location, Location, Location
This is an important factor. You may want to choose a location that is important to you and your significant other when looking into places for your photoshoot. This may be the place you both met or somewhere you two enjoy spending a lot of your time (like this couple in target). If you do not want to choose a sentimental place that is okay as well. A lot of couples research into outdoor areas around their town with stunning scenery. If you do this, we can promise the photos will be just a beautiful. And hey, it may just become a new favorite spot between you and your significant other.
Splurging on Professional Hair and Makeup
Although this is something that isn’t necessary to do it is always nice to consider. Why not get treated like royalty on another day besides your wedding day? Pamper yourself and feel your best. You want to feel your best going into the photoshoot so why not sit back and relax while someone makes you feel like gold.
When planning an engagement photo shoot plan for an hour or so before sunset. A beautiful sunset makes everything that much better. This will also allow for both daylight and golden hour photographs. Planning the timing is everything for the lighting of your photographs. We promise you won’t be let down.
