Adorable Engagement Shoots!

Yay, you are engaged!  Such an amazing moment when the man you love so much gets down on one knee as he asks you to be his forever.  You wish you could freeze that moment for the rest of your life!  Well, there is a way to capture your young, exciting love in the most innocent stage it will ever be in.  For most, before you share sicknesses, kids, busy schedules and everyday real life together as a married couple.  

So, is an engagement photo shoot for you?  Not every couple chooses to take engagement photos but I highly encourage you to consider it!  Not only is it a fantastic way to bond together as a newly engaged couple but it comes with many perks!  To be able to look back in 20 years and remember your love in it’s most early stages is just priceless.  You also get the opportunity to work with your wedding photographer before your wedding day.  This can be key because it gives you the chance for you and your honey to get to know your photographer so that you will be extra comfortable with each other on wedding day.  It also helps you and your fiance bond and become comfortable in front of a camera which is not something you do everyday together.  This can be important to get the best romantic chemistry in your wedding day shots!

Themed Engagement Sessions: Hobbies

I know I just posted Themed Engagement Sessions: Movies but I found so many creative and fun ideas for engagement portraits I just couldn’t wait to share them with you!

If you don’t have a favorite movie, it may be easier to portray a favorite hobby.  Like I mentioned in my last post about engagement session themes (and any theme for that matter) as long as it fits your personalities your pictures will turn out great!  I have listed some of my favorite hobby’s that couples are using as the theme for their engagement pictures.

Sports like baseball and football are great for showing off your personalities and favorite interests. Check out how these brides used sports as the inspiration for their pictures.

Do you love camping together?  How cute are these camping pictures?!

If your man loves fishing why not use that as the theme for the engagement shoot? I think this bride-to-be looks so adorable with her dress and yellow rain boots!

If you both love water sports like surfing, use that as the inspiration for your engagement session!

Do you love reading books? You could have your photo shoot in a bookstore or coffee shop!

And lastly, I love this engagement shoot with the couple riding their bikes.

As you can see, there are so many different options you can choose from.  Just pick something you love to do together and plan your engagement session around that!

Themed Engagement Sessions: Movie Inspired

I am in love with themed engagement shoots!  The days of a newly engaged couples taking pictures in a studio are quickly fading and are being replaced with some fun and creative themes as the inspiration for their photography session.  I think the key to a great shoot is to make sure the theme you choose “fits” you and your fiance.  If you try to force a theme that isn’t you it may come off as cheesy and overdone. As long as the theme you choose fits your personalities, it will turn out to be a great shoot with amazing pictures that will be a great expression of your love for one another.

My all time favorite sessions would have to be movie-inspired themes.  If you and your fiance enjoy a certain movie and it has a love story there is probably a way to recreate some of those moments in a photo shoot.

Below is Disney’s “Up” Themed photo shoot and I thought it was too cute not to share.

Take a look at this “Water for Elephants” engagement session!  This is so classic and beautiful!

Here is one of my favorite movies “The Notebook”…how romantic!

Check out this Alice in Wonderland inspired engagement shoot!

What about a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme?

If you are a Twilight movie fan, this would be perfect!
