Fashion Friday: Engagement Photos 101

Happy Fashion Friday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week cause I have just the right post to help finish it on a high note – Engagement Photos 101! As some of the most important photos that you’ll ever have, posing for them can seem like a horribly daunting task. Of course you’re in love but how do you make that come across in every photo especially when (if your like most of us!) you’re not exactly a trained professional. Never fear, because today we’re showing off some wonderfully sweet props and photo inspirations that will have you posing like a pro and feeling amazing! So get ready to take the best photos of your life – this engagement session is ready to start!

A first major idea that we love for shooting amazing engagement photos is to play with some signage! You said YES – so share it! From bunting banners to chalkboard signs, it’s a perfect start to your photo session to get comfy in front of the camera and start to goof around with your fiance – two very important pieces to the perfect engagement photo puzzle!

Another great prop idea to keep in mind while your planning your pictures is all about your bling baby! We chose almost all the props in this shoot so our lovely receptionist Alicia could show off her gorgeous engagement ring! It’s just that little extra touch of thoughtfulness that really makes these photos swoonworthy!

Along with the bling, another fantastic prop idea is to grab some that you can use after your shoot as well! From adding a special touch to your home that will always remind you of a wonderful day to incorporating pieces you’ll use at your actual wedding, versatile props aren’t hard to find and they’re the best way to get the most bang for your buck (and we love that!).

When racking your brain for the perfect ideas – remember to stay true to yourselves! We loved shooting this fall engagement session because we used simple props that showed our “couple” (made up of our gorgeous receptionist, Alicia and our handsome photographer, Luke) doing the things they ordinarily liked doing. Sure they don’t go about holding signs that say their thoughts around the office, but we didn’t have them doing anything that was super out of their comfort zone. So try and keep what you like doing as a couple in the foreground of your photo planning – your pictures will come out much less “posed” and a lot more personal if you do!

{ Last but Certainly Not Least, Play Around with Little Extras like our Customizable Diamond Stickers and “Sippers” Candy Striped Paper Straws! }

A final tip – don’t be scared to play around! Grab some little extras to make your photos one of a kind with simple accents like we’re showing here! At the end of the day, the biggest thing you want to show off is your love for each other. So don’t let being a little camera shy stop you! Get comfy with the camera by donning some fantastic props to lighten the mood and then let your love shine! We promise if you do, you’ll have enchanting engagement photos you’ll treasure forever!

A final huge thank you to Alicia and Luke for being such great sports – it was a chilly Albertan day when we shot this but they trooped through it like champs! Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend! Happy Weddings!
