Engagement Photo Ideas : Congratulations, you’re engaged! And now it’s time to decide how to let everyone know your happy news, while avoiding anything run of the mill or undeniably nauseating.
A creative engagement photo shoot is a great way to spread the word of your upcoming commitment, in a way that you want to rather that what society dictates, and making sure that your photos are bursting with personality and unique to you is the perfect way to ensure that you are proud to allocate them some prime wall space.
There is no limit to how imaginative your engagement photo shoot can be, and I have put together a few awesome ideas that’ll help yours to stand out, and are sure to get your creative juices flowing!
If you have found someone who shares, or at least begrudgingly accepts, your slightly obsessive but totally worthy love of a certain book series, television show, or film franchise, it really does make sense to embrace this during your engagement photo shoot, so that your photos include the two loves of your life.
Plus, you wouldn’t want to miss out on a chance to add a personal photo (or two) to your memorabilia collection would you?
Photos could show you cuddling up with your collection of Harry Potter books, skipping hand in hand towards the Tardis, or attacking each other with lightsabres – in a loving way of course!
Anyway, you already have all of the props you could possibly need to carry off this engagement photo shoot idea, don’t you? Thought so…
Forget about standard lakeside shoots complete with tartan blanket and wicker basket, and focus on finding some really cool places which can make your photos stand out for all the right reasons, and actually mean something to you and your partner, rather than trying to tick off a stereotypical checklist.
I’m not necessarily talking about where you met, or local beauty spots, but quirky landmarks that you love, creative street art that you may have stumbled across during weekend walks, or a building that you both think has something special about it.
Even the most understated location can create a striking photo, and the more you think outside the box, the more unique your engagement photo shoot can be!
Every couple has that thing they like to do together which helps them to bond, and it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but you both think it’s ace, so why not include it in your engagement photo shoot?
Whether you like to spend your evenings indoors playing Scrabble, enjoy banging out some tunes together on your favourite musical instruments, or knocking back pints in your favourite pub, these are the moments that make your relationship what it is, and are totally worth celebrating.
Just remember to look smitten with each other while you do it, I know how these hobbies can get competitive, and an angry engagement photo doesn’t always make a great engagement photo, although let’s not rule it out completely!
If you live with your fur-babies now is the time to get them involved! Get in the fresh air for some dog walking, let your snakes embrace you while you embrace each other or go riding on your horses in some beautiful countryside.
