Engagement photos have become an essential part of every bride and groom’s wedding process. They are the perfect opportunity to preserve who you are as a couple in a natural yet memorable fashion! And when you have a great photographer, great engagement photos are sure to follow. Today Rachel Dornquast of Distinction Studio is sharing her expertise with 5 tips to ensure awesome engagement photos.
1. Relax and Have Fun! Sounds easy enough… but often times being in front of the camera can make that easier said then done. Make a date out of your engagement session and enjoy having photos taken together!
2. Come Prepared! Did you want something for your save-the-date, make sure to bring it! Ladies, bringing a hair-brush and touch-up stuff for make-up and lips is never frowned upon! Was there a special prop you wanted to include in your photos…don’t forget it! The more you bring the better, if you don’t end up using it… at least you had it just in case!
3. Look Fabulous! Make sure your clothing is cleaned and pressed and also make sure your clothing coordinates with what your fiancé is wearing. It’s best to plan it out together! If you are doing multiple outfit changes consider how easy it is to change in and out of clothing and make sure everything is going to reflect you! Ladies getting hair and make-up done is always beneficial. Long story short, you want to look fabulous for photos from head to toe (and for some of you… from head to high heels!)
4. Trust Your Photographer! You hired the perfect photographer… now all you have to do is trust them and let them do what they do best… take wonderful photographs! If they offer advice, it is probably a good idea to listen to it!
5. Express Yourself As A Couple! Don’t be afraid to show off who you are as a couple. What makes your relationship special and unique? Is there a special part about your relationship that people always comment about, incorporate that into your photos! Most of all, show how much you LOVE each other, these are engagement photos after all!
