So a bunch of couples got engaged over the holidays and possibly Valentine’s Day! And they are wondering what they should start with first in the planning process! Well, before you get knee deep in the planning process a fun thing to do is to announce your engagement to the world! And one of the best ways to do this is by having some amazing photos taken of you both during an Engagement Portrait Session! Whether you and your significant other have been together a year or longer, a lot of times there are not a ton of photos of you together as a couple. This is a great way to add some photos to your albums, meet and try out a photographer that you might possibly use for your wedding and to have some fun casual photos of you and your fiance’ for things like your wedding website, save-the-date cards and more!

Here are some great poses and ideas to make your session fabulous!

1.) Beautiful View – Choose a Location for an Outstanding Natural View! (Especially if you can’t hold your wedding at a location with a spectacular view!)

2.) Incorporate Your Pets – Let’s face it your dogs are your family! Bring them along to the photo-shoot for some fun photos. This is a great way to include your furry family members, especially if you can’t bring them to your wedding venue.

3.) Highlight the Engagement Ring – Did your fiance’ do an excellent job picking out your ring? Make sure the ring is the focus for a few shots!

4.) Choose a Fun Activity for Photos – Maybe you are avid rock climbers, role-players, bikers, etc. Use the hobbies that you like to do together to create a fun photo-shoot that shows off what you love to do together!

5.) The Hand-Hold Pose – is a must for every engagement session! It shows how connected you are to the one you love.

6.) Lovely Portrait – Don’t forget to do some traditional poses looking at the camera too! Grandma wants to see your faces!

7.) Nightime Photos – Be unique and schedule your session close to sundown so you can also incorporate some night-time poses, especially if you got engaged around the holidays and Christmas lights are still hanging up around town.

8.) Wall Art Backdrop – Want an urban/edgy look… find some Graffiti Wall Art to pose in front of!

9.) Epic Kiss Photo – Don’t forget the romantic Hollywood kiss photo!

10.) Sun Glow Photos – Use the sun as an interesting/creative element in your photos!

Just delivered another amazing wedding album to another gorgeous couple from their Fall 2018 wedding! Loved this twilight wedding at this fabulous venue.

Just got my personalized wine tumbler from Bride Bop –  https://bridebop.com This wine tumbler is a vacuum insulated stemless wine glass that’s perfect for keeping your drinks chilled up to 12 hours! It’s dishwasher safe and also great for hot drinks too! Bride Bop contacted me to see if I wanted to try out one of their products and review it. I chose this wine tumbler because not only do I love wine, but I thought it would be the perfect cup to hold other beverages in (as well as wine) while I’m in our pool this Summer. I love that it’s personalized so that there’s no mistaking that it’s my cup! These would make perfect bridesmaid gifts for all the lovely ladies in your wedding party! I highly recommend this item and Bride Bop’s website has a lot of great gifts for everyone in your wedding party.  Also check out their partner site: https://groomsday.com/ if you are also looking for some awesome gifts for all of the men in your wedding party!

As always, I wasn’t paid for this endorsement, but I was allowed to keep this fabulous tumbler! I love being able to give couples other ideas for their weddings whether it be venues, other services and more so feel free to contact me if you think my audience would be interested in your products and/or services as I would love to help you spread the word!
