How to have unique engagement photos!

Being engaged is not like any other time in your life! You want your photos to reflect who you are as a couple and what you love about each other. There is no other couple that is like you, so your photos should be just as unique as you are! Below I've listed some ideas to help get you thinking about unique ideas for your engagement photos.

1.) Plan a special activity!

Is there something the two of you love to do together? Something you met while doing, or that you bond over? Find a photographer who can capture you in your element!

  • Get your fishing gear on and find a river!
  • Hiking - Hit your favorite trail
  • Camping Photo shoot -If you love camping, plan a photo shoot with a tent, campfire, s'mores, and hot cocoa!
  • Water Themed - Go kayaking, paddle boarding, or anything else in the water. Plan for a fun session on the lake or by the river!
  • Horse Back Riding

2.) Pets!

Yes if you have furry little (or big) ones that are special to you, bring them on your session. Make sure the location you're going allows pets. Bring a friend who can watch the pet when it's time for just the two of you to have photos

3.) Sentimental Items

Do you have love notes you share, or any other sentimental item that means a lot in your relationship? Throw it in the car so your photographer can take a few photos

4) Outfits!

Is there a certain genre or time period you both share a love for? Do you have silly matching outfits you want to sport. Or maybe you've been waiting for the perfect event to wear that gorgeous gold sequin dress for? The sky is the limit!

5) Children!

If you have children they can be a great addition to your photos. Just remember the engagement session is about you TWO as a couple and capturing your love. Add on 30 minutes to your session to get photos of you all as a family!

6.) Fun

Add something fun, surprising, or colorful to you photos.
