- Mood. You can say a lot with your engagement photos, such as “we have a fun and playful relationship” or “We’re so deeply in love that Shakespeare would be jealous”. Setting the right mood will allow your photos to have the effect that you desire. The mood you set will also influence your poses and the camera angles. Setting a mood will also help your photographer bring your photographic vision to life and make your engagement photos everything that you want them to be.
- Props. If there is one way to guarantee that you have unique photos that highlight your favorite parts of your relationship, and that is by adding props! You can include something as simple as a cute sign telling the camera about your relationship, perhaps how or when you met, or even your wedding date. You also have the option of including an item, or multiple items, that communicate a shared passion that brought you together; a keepsake from your first trip together, a memento of your engagement event, or even your high school jackets, especially if you are high school sweethearts. These make lovely additions to your photos as they let your loved ones know a little more about you as a couple.
- Outfits. Clothes can tell a lot about a person. It shows their fashion sense, their comfort zone, their personality, and possibly their favorite colors. Your ensemble is perhaps one of the most important parts of your photo shoot, as it will create a wow effect and make your photos pop. A variety of outfits also offers a variety of photos.
