We want to run to the nearest mountain and scream out, “We LOVE engagement photos!”. There are so many reasons why we love them, the main being it’s a celebration of a couple madly in love and the photographs reflect that. When couples book a wedding with us we include the engagement session automatically, it is a great way for us as photographers to truly get to know our couple! Here is just a few tips that we share with our amazing couples:
Pin, pinning, pinned: Pinterest has been a powerful tool for us. It has allowed us to show clients inspirations and ideas! We have created a board geared towards engagement portraits that showcase color combos, style, trends, and so much more! Make sure to follow us–>Wren Photography.
Goodbye Matchy-Matchy, Hello Coordinating: Long gone are the days of matching khaki pants and a white shirt! For engagement portraits you want to complement each others outfits by choosing colors that work well together. Check out our pinterest boards (mentioned above) for ideas.
Make It Personal: These are YOUR images and of course you want them to speak volumes about you and your fiance. Discuss things you both enjoy doing together and bring “props” and accessories that will help compliment who you are. If you both enjoy playing music together, bring your instruments to your session. If you both enjoy boating, suggest doing your session on a boat or, at the very least, near the water. Bring along items that will represent each individual AND who you both are as a couple collectively.
These are just a few main points that we tell our clients and each photographer should have some sort of helpful times to guide you in the right direction. The more you know and have planned in advance, the less worry on the day of the session! After all, you just want to relax and show how madly in love you two are!
