Finding Your Engagement Photo Style

How to Find Your Engagement Style for personal, meaningful pictures!

This is one of those things you really don’t need to be stressed about. The key is to look inward and to consider your current life habits, hobbies and interests. From there, you’ll be able to find your engagement photography style and incorporate it into your photographs seamlessly.

1. Think about your respective, and shared, hobbies and passions.

For example, do you both love music? Or is cooking every night something you always do together? Maybe you love to go swing dancing.

2. Professions can definitely contribute to your photo session style.

Is he a firefighter? Are you a scientist? A farmer? Are either of you a chef? A kindergarten teacher? A geologist? Whatever the case may be, you could choose to incorporate your professional lives into your engagement photographs. Maybe it’s as simple as a chalkboard, a hay bale, or a chef’s hat!

3. Are you into sports?

Show some team spirit in your photographs with jerseys, sports equipment or something similar.

4. What’s your favorite kind of music?

Are you both country lovers? Maybe you’re more into the classical music scene. Don’t be afraid to dress the part.

5. Where do you feel like you’re really in your element?

Is it outdoors at your favorite park? In the museum perusing the art? Or maybe you love the buzz of a colorful city. Consider locations around our area that may provide the feel you want. (Please be sure to let us know first so we can make sure professional photography is an option in that location!)

6. What always makes you two laugh or have fun?

Maybe it’s a board game, or a visit to the fair or circus. Let's see what kind of fun props we can include in your engagement photo session.

No matter what, as long as you're both comfortable and happy during your photography session, you'll have stunning engagement photos!
