The love of your life proposed and you said yes! Now it’s time for you to show your love off to the world in your engagement shoot.
Engagement shoots are becoming more and more popular and for good reason! E-shoots were often viewed as just another additional wedding cost, but now many couples are looking to their e-shoot as a way to capture their love in day to day life.
For multiple reasons, engagement shoots are great. For starters, those photos will last a lifetime and you can parade pretty pictures of you and your beau to family and friends. In addition, the e-shoot provides bonding time with your photographer in preparation for the big day and gives you an opportunity to become comfortable especially if you’re camera-shy!
Scarlet O’Neil of Scarlet O’Neil Photography has perfect tips to get you engagement-shoot ready:
- Don”t wear matchy-match clothing. In theory, it sounds great. In pictures, it doesn”t turn out as well.
- Find a location that means something to you as a couple.
- Get hair and makeup done. Trust me, it is worth it.
- Most importantly: Be authentic. Be comfortable. Relax. Have fun! The photos are about you as a couple, so just be you. It”s really quite easy and produces the most genuine pictures.
Live. Laugh. Love.
