Engagement Photos

I am neither for or against Engagement Photos, however, I do think they should be personal and reflect who the bride and groom to be are as a couple. The staged setting circa Olan Mills in the 80’s is, in my humble opinion, a bit flat. A great engagement photo should show the love between the couple and their personalities.
Some ideas would be to take the pictures where you had your first date or first met. Include your pets. Have a favorite sports team in common? Take pictures at their location.
Laughter is a great way to showcase your love for each other. Catching one person gazing at the other is romantic and special. Is there an activity you enjoy as a couple? Take photos doing that activity.
Here are some great sites to visit for more ideas.
