What's Your Engagement Style?

Does Your Personal Style show up in your Engagement Photos?

With engagement season in full swing, this is one of those things you really don’t need to be stressed about. The key is to consider your current life habits, hobbies and interests. From there, you’ll be able to find your engagement session style and incorporate it into your photographs seamlessly.

  1. Think about your respective, and shared, hobbies and passions. For example, do you both love music? Or is cooking every night something you always do together? Maybe you love to go swing dancing. You'll want to tell your photographer so it helps them plan your shots.

  1. Your respective professions can definitely contribute to your engagement session style. Is he a firefighter? A scientist? A farmer? Is she a chef? A kindergarten teacher? A geologist? Whatever the case may be, incorporate your professional lives into your photographs. If it’s as simple as a chalkboard, a hay bale, or a chef’s hat, bring the props you can. The ones you can't, again, tell your photographer - he (or she) can always help.
  2. Are you into sports? Show some team spirit in your photographs with jerseys, sports equipment or something similar.
  3. What’s your favorite kind of music? Are you both country lovers? Maybe you’re more into the classical music scene. Don’t be afraid to dress the part.
  4. Where do you feel like you’re really in your element? Is it outdoors at your favorite park? In the museum perusing the art? Or maybe you love the buzz of a colorful city.

  1. What always makes you two laugh or have fun? Maybe it’s a board game, or a visit to the fair or circus.

These photos will provide a slice of your life that you'll communicate to your guests in "Save The Date" cards, sign-in books and even thank you cards.  They'll also be a fun memory to look back on the time you spent courting, before you were an old married couple!
