Engagement photos play an important role in the wedding process. Not only do they announce your intention of getting married to the world, but they can also be used for save the dates. It’s also an opportunity for couples to get comfortable in front of the camera, which results in better pictures on your wedding day.
Our Toronto wedding photographers love engagement shoots for another reason as well; it’s a chance to really get to know the couple. Engagement shoots are more casual and fun than pre-wedding or wedding photos. It’s a great opportunity to show off your personality as a couple. Here are a few pro tips on how to infuse that in your photos.
People often ask us what they should wear to an engagement shoot. We also recommend dressing with coordination and comfort in mind. But clothing is a great way to show off your personality as well. Clothing is how we portray ourselves to the world and an engagement shoot is no different. We recommend you come as the best version of yourself!
Props can be cheesy if used in the wrong way. But our engagement photographers love to see couple interact with objects that matter to them. If you’re a skater bring along your board! If you have a pet that’s adored we can include them as well! We love to include hobbies or passions in our engagement shoots so feel free to bring along any props that may help show them off.
The location of an engagement shoot is more than a pretty background. It can tell a story in itself. Maybe it’s a place of significant importance in your relationship. Maybe it represents your home or an interest of yours. Not all locations have to have meaning, sometimes we just want something pretty! But if there is a location or place that’s special or shows off your personality it may be worth going there for the shoot.
Take advantage of the fun vibe of engagement shoots to show off who you really are as a couple. Our photographers love taking risks, and they usually turn out well. At the end of the day we just want the engaged couple to be happy and comfortable, and being yourself is usually the best way to achieve that.
