Top Tips for the Best Engagement Photographs

Some people really cannot wait to get married and so they tend to rush through the engagement. But sometimes, it can be really beneficial to a relationship and its health to really relish the time spent as an engaged couple. Planning weddings can be very stressful and intense and sometimes this can really put strain on a relationship. So, with this in mind, when planning ahead for your special day, take some time to step back and appreciate your partnership. A fantastic way to do this is to plan and create the best quality engagement announcement pictures possible. While this does require planning, it can be a lot more relaxed as well as provide some ample practice for when you actually start to plan your big day. Below are the tips to help you achieve the most aesthetically pleasing engagement announcement pictures:

  • Make it activity based: There is nothing more awkward than a clearly staged or posed photograph wherein the couple are standing stiffly in front of a boring, single colour backdrop. Your pictures will look much more stylish and natural if you are both doing what you love. This will create much more genuine looks and reactions from you and your partner. So, it is much better to ignore that the photographer and the camera and focus on the emotions that your other half brings out in you. Doing a hobby, such as hiking, swimming or even crafting together will bring out these emotions in you and thus create the best reactions and ergo the best photographs possible for your announcement.
  • Set the scene: Thinking about where to stage your announcement pictures can take time and so it’s best to think about where you want to take the pictures. The location should be somewhere that is important to your relationship. For example, if you met your partner at a café, at work or at university, maybe find a way to incorporate that into your engagement pictures. The photos will turn out much better if they are not so generic and overdone.
  • Wear what you and your partner are comfortable in: Clothing has remarkable power within photographs and can really set the mood. While it can be nice to dress up and look fancy, remember that this can take away from the natural fluidity of the picture. So, even if it might look good if you and your partner are dressed to the nines, it will look even better if you are comfortable. If you and your other half are awkward in your clothes this will show through the lens and in print.
  • Bring a prop: Even if you are in one of the most adventurous locations in the world, a simple background can be quite mundane. Bringing a prop that is important to your relationship can really spice up your photograph as well as making it a touch more personal and sentimental.
