Five Suggestions for your Engagement Shoot Guest Blog post by SimplyBridal
Engagement shoots now come with many wedding packages. While some couples are full of modeling-mojo, others may need some guidance. Since the hours are going to be long, it’s fun and exciting to go some place or do something that you two enjoy. Here are five things that make for awesome engagement shoots. It’s great to get down all your best poses now so you’ll be a pro in your wedding dress.
1. Find a View
There’s a reason why so many romantic movies are against backgrounds that are bigger than life. Sunsets and oceans are the most obvious, but cityscapes and natural landscapes are also beautiful.
2. Once Upon a Time
Everyone has a love story. While your love story might not fit into a single day, you can retell your courtship by visiting familiar places or making one up. It might be true or complete fiction, as dramatic as a life or death scenario, or as intimate as reaching for the same box of cereal.
3. Doing Something You Love
There must be things that you and your fiancé love to do together, and have done again and again as your relationship grew. Take full advantage and showcase your love for each other in the context of something you both share.
4. Bring a Pet
If you have a pet, chances are they feature pretty prominently in your life. Why not bring them along and make them part of your shoot?
5. A Place with History
In every relationship there are moments and places that carry some emotional significance - the place where you first kissed, the park where he proposed, where the two of you met… Doing your engagement shoot in a place that matters to the both of you will add an intimate feel to your photos.
