Paris for Two is a professional photographer in Paris, offering wedding photography.
Engagement photos are a great representation of the start of a new chapter in a couple’s life while capturing their love and chemistry for each other. These pictures are then distributed to the whole family to let them know that a marriage is going to be happening very soon and they should save the dates. This means that everyone is going to see these pictures, which is why they need to be fabulous!
If you want your engagement photos to turn out great, keep these 5 tips in mind:
The first and most important part is to be yourself. This is your engagement photo shoot, so why pretend to be someone or something you are not? If you are a goofy couple, be goofy during the shoot. Or, if you are a couple that loves going on adventures, be adventurous on the shoot. If you really want the bond between you two captured then simply forget about the camera and be yourself. You can take some advice from the photographer, but don’t forget to add some personal touches here and there.
Everyone obviously wants to look amazing on their engagement photos. That is totally understandable, but stressing too much over little details will end up making you feel tired and exhausted. To relieve some of that stress, make sure you are prepared for the shoot. For example, if you have a shoot early in the morning, don’t do an all-nighter. Other ways to prepare are deciding on the location and outfits beforehand. You can also look up some pictures of other couples on their engagement shoot and get some ideas on how to pose and stuff like that. There is nothing wrong with getting some inspiration, right?
For your engagement shoot to really show who you two are as a couple, the location needs to be just right. Pick a place that has some meaning or reminds you of a time you two had together. Posing in an environment you are comfortable in will only make things easier.
You can totally wear your favorite outfits in an engagement. Don’t worry too much about wearing something that is trendy; instead, go for something that describes ‘you.’Let the photographer capture you two in the most natural state possible. You can start off with a simple and casual outfit and then do some photos in a more dresses up look. Another thing to remember while picking out the outfits are the time of day and weather.
This is a special moment in your life, so make sure to have loads of fun! Don’t worry about whether your hair is out of place or whether your pose is cute enough. Love is the best accessory, so make good use of it. Feel free to flirt a little, laugh a lot and kiss whenever you get the chance. Make your engagement shoot a memorable one!
Keep these tips in mind and your engagement shoot photos will turn out magical!
