Many couples get nervous about their engagement photo shoot. You want your engagement photo shoot to be absolutely perfect and go smoothly. Basically, you want to shine at your engagement photo shoot. Don’t you worry because we have put together the perfect tips for you!
Have a Talk with your Partner
Before you contact any photographer, it is important to have a conversation with your fiancé. The couple should decide everything about the photo shoot together so that each one of them feels comfortable and knows what to expect.
The Right Photographer
If you have the money, go ahead and hire a professional photographer to do the photo shoot. A professional will guide you the right day during the shoot and take some amazing shots as well. Having the right photographer is very essential. Many photographers offer wedding packages that includes an engagement session, so that is a major plus!
Dress to Impress
The basic tip to shining at your engagement photo shoot is to dress well. There are a few guidelines for dressing at an engagement shoot which includes avoiding florals, patterns and plaids. Women should keep it minimal with the jewelry. Also, things like a purse or phone during the shoot.
You will obviously be smiling a lot during your photo shoot, so your teeth need to sparkle. There are plenty of easy and quick teeth whitening solutions out there that the couple can try.
Pick The Perfect Location
If you want to really shine in your photo shoot, you need to choose an amazing location. The location can really have an impact on how you behave during the shoot, so pick wisely. Go for places like the lake, beach, farm, river fall, city center or any other similar place. You can also switch locations during the shoot if they are close by.
Sometimes a candid pose can come out to be more flattering than a planned one. You don’t necessarily need to pose for the shoot; the photographer can capture you and your fiancé doing some activity together. If there is a particular activity that you both like to do together, do that. This way you will be able to really shine in the photographs. If you’re a silly couple, than be silly together. Just remember to be yourself!
The trick to shinning at your engagement photo shoot is to have fun and pretend like no one is watching. If you are uncomfortable during the shoot or faking a smile, the camera will be able to tell.
Remember to be flirty at your engagement photo shoot so that you and your partner can really steal the spotlight!
