Once you get engaged, everyone will be SO excited and no one will be thinking about scheduling an engagement shoot. But, don’t let it get away from you for too long. You will need time to find a photographer, schedule a time, and wait for the pictures before you can put an announcement in the paper or put together your Save-the-Dates (more on those later).
Here are some ideas for some photos. Your photographer will have great ideas well. It is a good idea to take a look at their portfolio and past engagement shoots to see their style and tell them which photos you liked and which ones you prefer not to do.
This can be your chance to do something totally different than your wedding. If you are having a very formal wedding you can do some really fun and different photos. Or, if you are having a backyard reception, put on a long, fancy gown for your engagement photos! There are no rules, have fun with it!
Happy Planning, xo
