Tips for Engagement Photos

When planning your Engagement Photos, there are plenty of things to keep in mind when making your photos feel more natural and authentic. Whether you’re already engaged or about to become engaged, we’ve got some tips for you in order to keep unforgettable memories of your engagement. Here are 5 tips for nailing your engagement photos.

Choosing the right photographer for your engagement photos

Obviously, for the most successful engagement photos, it is essential to trust a professional Engagement Photographer. This is a big decision!

If possible, choose an Engagement Photographer who will immortalize your engagement and plans to also shoot your wedding. This will allow you to have cohesive photos in the same style. You will have the opportunity to meet your photographer and create a relationship of trust with him before your wedding day.

What to wear

It is essential to choose outfits that make you feel good and comfortable during your engagement photos. If you choose clothes that you feel too cramped in, you’re going to be spending your time worrying about them by fidgeting with them over and over. If you choose something you’ve never worn before, make sure you try it on before.

Opt for professional makeup artists and hairdressers

If you are completely confident in your makeup skills as well as hair styling, you may choose to skip this step. But if this is not your case, you should schedule an appointment with your hairdresser and makeup artist before your engagement photos. It would be a shame to test your talents that day if you are not sure of the result. A photoshoot requires a little more intense make-up than you might wear every day, which is why it bodes well to trust a professional for this task.

Visit the location in advance

The place you choose to shoot is very important! So before you go in blindly without really knowing where you are going, choose a spot that you like or check it out before. If you are more of a homebody, maybe an indoor shoot at home and in complete privacy will be perfect.

Rely on your better half

If you are not used to being in front of the camera and if you are not necessarily the most comfortable there, you may be a little nervous at the start of the shoot. But don’t panic, you will be well-taken care of! Your other half will certainly know how to put you at ease, and your photographer knows what they are doing. And if nothing helps, forget the camera and kiss. Yes, you are the stars of this day, so make the most of it!
