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.
