You’re engaged!!! Now it’s time for you both to show off and celebrate this huge milestone together and what better way to share the news then with an engagement photoshoot!!!
Planning the perfect shoot can be challenging, after all, you don’t want to get your pictures back and think ‘I wish we had done this differently…’ One of the most important parts of the shoot is the location, this sets the vibe for the whole shoot so nailing it is essential!
Here are my top 3 questions to ask when choosing the perfect shoot location!
The more personality we can capture the better so ask yourself what you do in your down time, where can you and your partner be found? Perhaps you’re at home chilling on the couch or maybe you’re having a drink at your favorit brewery. The locations you both enjoy are a great place to start when choosing your backdrop because these are the places you feel most comfortable!
When having your pictures taken it’s so important to feel comfortable because this helps the pictures look more natural and authentic. Choosing somewhere like your favourite date night location, can really help you to feel relaxed because it’s somewhere that’s familiar to you and as a result helps create beautiful and candid pictures!
This is an important question to ask because it helps the pictures to be as authentic and true as possible. The location of the shoot should help describe you and tell your story, representing this time in your lives.
Does a night on the town represent you both, or are you more likely to be found enjoying a day at the beach? These are two very different backdrops, with two very very different outcomes. Make sure your location represents you in a way that’s true to you, and screams who you are as a couple.
Do you just already have a vision for how you want this shoot to look and have a dream location in mind? This can be somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit, somewhere you have seen on instagram and fell in love with, or maybe maybe we go all out and do a destination shoot!
This is all about you and nothing is too big or too small. This will be the only chance you get to do an engagement shoot so why not make it an experience to remember forever!
After all, we’re capturing a snapshot in your lives together, so making these images as meaningful as possible is the goal. You want to look back at the images and smile, reminiscing about this time in your lives!
