The sky is clear. The sun is shining. The birds are singing. You couldn’t possibly ask for a perfect day than this for your engagement photography.
As you get ready for, what’s meant to be your picture perfect day, remember to keep some things in mind before you get your engagement pictures taken.
- Choose Clothes You Feel Comfortable Wearing
Of course,you would want yourself to look nice. Then again, if wearinggowns is not something you would feel relaxed in, there’s no reason why you should force yourself to wear it for your engagement photo.
You can also keep the option of an outfit change. That way, you can get pictures where you are in your casuals and where you are dressed up.
- Don’t Think Too Much
When you overthink, your photos will come out looking staged and formal. You want to keep them fun and spunky.
When your photographer asks you about your preferences, don’t think in terms of what will look good in the pictures. If you and your partner’s hobby is reading, get some casual and natural photos with the two of you sharing a newspaper or a book. You can get some “casual” shots of the two of you holding hands and walking down the street, or sitting on the swings in a park. Your options are endless.
- Get Ideas From Your Surroundings
If you live near a park, or in a locality with beautiful gardens, you should definitely consider it as a spot to take for your stunning engagement photos. You see a stone pathway. Walk on it hand in hand. There’s a brick wall or building nearby. Use it as your backdrop.
If you already have a place in mind that means something to you and your significant other, don’t be afraid to share it with your photographer. This way, you will not only havepictures that are unique and beautiful, but they will also show your personal story.
In any case, your photographer must have ideas of beautiful sites you can use for your engagement pictures.
- If you don’t agree to it, just say no
At times, you might feel that your photographer is giving you ideas that do not reflect who you and your partner are. In such cases, don’t feelanxious to say no. There are times your photographer might suggest ideas that are too cutesy or cheesy for you. If that’s not something you feel comfortable with, you can’t be forced to do it just because it’ll look good in the pictures.
It could also be that you and your beau feel squeamish and uncomfortable with PDA. Just remember that you don’t HAVE to feel obligated to take such pictures. Just do what you feel comfortable with what youwish to do.
Your engagement shoot will turn out to be exactly the way you want if you follow your heart and do as you desire. After all, it’s your day.
