When planning engagement sessions with my couples, I always love it if they do something that they typically like to do together. This makes sessions more relaxed and comfortable and also let’s their personalities shine! However, if a couple is ever at a loss for what to do, I love to share some inspiration with them! Below you will find a few ideas for your upcoming engagement session and a mini mood board to help you prepare!
If you’ve already take your engagement pictures, did you do anything special, what was something that helped you prepare? I’d love to know!
I love the idea of doing at home session for your engagement. It is one of the best ways to get natural, unposed pictures. You get to do life together but just with a camera there! Whether you like to read, cook, play board games or drink coffee/wine, it makes for such a comfortable environment.
Okay, so this is kind of the opposite! This type of session is for those who want to be GLAM! Dress up all fancy, pop some champagne and go all out for their session! I love this because there aren’t a ton of occasions to dress up to the nines and wear a formal outfit!
There is something seriously romantic about a sweet picnic. Bring the wine, cheese and whatever else your heart desires and you’ll have such a fun (and yummy) time! The great thing about doing a picnic is that it can be just about as ‘nice’ or as casual as you’d like it to be!
By the water
While we don’t have the ocean near by here in Kentucky, there are so many other ways to incorporate water into your session! Whether it be the lake, a pond or a nearby creek, there are plenty of options!
I personally love a good field. This is for the couple that doesn’t want any distractions when it comes to their session. A beautiful flowy dress in a field is what dreams are made of!
This could be the city you live in or the city you fell in love in. City sessions make for really cool, beautiful images. The architecture speaks for itself and creates a lively buzz for your session.
