How to Use Your Engagement Photos for Your Big Day
Every engagement photo shoot usually comes with a million amazing photos of you and your honey to be. But what do you do with them? It's not enough that you post your engagement photos on Facebook to share with family and friends. After all, you have spent time and good money on producing them, so better yet to put them into good use. The traditional ways of showcasing your engagement photos are to include them on “save the date” invites or in newspaper announcements. In addition, there are so many other fun things you can do with them – here are a few suggestions on how to use your engagement photos for your wedding day.
Wedding Reception Displays – what better way to welcome guests to the reception hall than with a beautiful engagement photo display? Choose a couple of your favourite engagement photos to accent the venue. Displaying the photos allows other guests who haven't seen them yet to enjoy and appreciate your awesome pictures.
Tell a Story with Your Engagement Photos
When a couple gets engaged, they step into the beginning of a new life long journey – a world of love, responsibility and happiness. To celebrate this momentous occasion, couples choose to immortalize their relationship through engagement photos.
It has been said time and again that a picture is worth a thousand words. A key ingredient to great engagement photos, aside from a couple madly in love and a great photographer, is a picture perfect setting that makes you feel comfortable, reflects your personality and photographs well. Remember that engagement photos tell a story and that story should reflect your journey and relationship. Having a theme creates harmony and continuity of your photos – it’s all about finding a unique and special location to tell your story through your engagement photos.
Location, Location and Location!
While photographers are great at suggesting locations, it is always helpful when the bride and groom have a few good ideas in mind. Although meaningful settings that have an important significance to you and your fiancé are always a brilliant idea – don't be afraid to think outside the box. Keep an eye out for unique textures and backgrounds that can allow for diversity!
At Eloise Photography, we love shooting in places that have interesting elements, colour and textures: places like a used bookstore, the beach, an industrial area, a carnival, a train station, a park or an open field. There are many great locations for your engagement photo shoot. However, whatever location you decide, make sure it's a location that suits your style and personalities.
Engagement photos are a fun part of your engagement period…that special, intimate time for just the both of you before you become husband and wife. An engagement shoot can become the perfect reason to celebrate your upcoming marriage, spend a quality day with your partner, try out your make-up and hair stylist and get to know your photographer who will be taking the photos on your big day. Engagement photos are about telling a story of a couple madly in love, whereas wedding photos are about telling a story of an important day. Don’t miss out on capturing both with Eloise Photography.
Pre-wedding Shoots and Why They are Necessary
Everyone knows that the photographs from a wedding day are often the most important feature. Long after the day is over, your photos and memories remain and this is why so much time and effort is put into finding the perfect photographic artist for you. Many couples aren’t even aware that the option for pre-wedding shoots exists or why they are necessary. When planning your big day you should be given the opportunity to meet with your chosen photographer at a venue of your choice to have portrait photographs taken of you and your partner.
You will find that many photographers on the market will include the pre-wedding shoot in their package and will merely charge if the couple wishes to have the images printed or supplied to them. It is necessary to do a shoot like this so that you and the photographer can learn how to communicate with each other and be comfortable around each other. You can also use the experience to advise what type of photos you are looking for, what your likes and dislikes are, and you can also get a better feel for the photographer’s creativity.
Having a photo shoot before the wedding day will also provide you with a great opportunity to learn how your photographer works and see how reliable they are. While they are there to provide you with a service, you also want them to work professionally, efficiently and to not disturb your guests too much.
The whole point of this shoot is to be natural and to enjoy the time spent with your partner. When the images are supplied digitally to you, you can use them on wedding invitations, on gifts to guests or just around the home. Some couples even choose to use them in a slideshow at the wedding reception – the choice is yours.
At Eloise Photography you can expect a friendly, reliable and professional service to be provided to you. You can also expect to be made to feel completely comfortable and at ease which is essential if you want your photos to look natural, relaxed and filled with the love that you have for your partner.
By taking the time to discuss your needs and requirements you can be provided with a full break down of what to expect on your big day. Also, browse through the previous pre-wedding shoots and other photo shoots hosted on our website and you will have a better idea of the creativity and care taken to present the perfect photo to our couples.
