This is an awesome article to share with your couples or to inspire you with great ideas for your next photo shoot
An engagement photo shoot is a perfect way to capture the happy moment and share the big news with your loved ones.
Now that you have found that special someone, it is time to find the best photographer in town and organise your photoshoot!
Not sure where to begin? Here are some of the 2018 engagement photo shoot trends we love!
One trend that will never go out of style is engagement photoshoots at historical sites. What better way to immortalise your endless love than by taking photos in front of a timeless site? There are so many beautiful ways to capture the icons of your hometown in a one of a kind photo shoot!
If you are from the Dublin area, you have got to check out these incredible engagement photo shoot locations in the city!
Signage and Letters
Signage has been a huge wedding trend lately! People love creating their own unique hashtags for the big day or just putting up cute phrases. From trendy neon signs to bohemian wooden signs to old-school traditional boards, this is a fun way to personalise your engagement photo shoot.
On top of just signs, some couples have taken to collecting together letters and spelling out messages beside them.
Bikes and Amusement Parks
Flaunt your fun side! An engagement photo shoot can be more than just rose gardens and swan-filled lakes. Going for a bike ride (hello, adorable tandem bikes!) or on a rollercoaster ride will put a natural smile on your face. Look at this photos here.
Exciting ideas like these are an especially great idea for couples who aren’t entirely comfortable in front of the camera. If you feel awkward posing in front of the camera, this is a perfect option.
Balloons or Smoke
Love a whimsical style? There are so many amazing ways to incorporate balloons of all shapes, sizes, and colours into your engagement photo shoot.
While balloons have been a trend for ages, coloured smoke bombs have become a huge up and coming trend in recent years. Just have a look at Brides.com’s post on 25 Cool & Colorful Reasons You Need Smoke Bombs in Your Wedding Portraits. It is amazing how many different types of styles that can incorporate smoke bombs for dramatic effect. From dramatic desert scenes to edgy urban landscapes, the possibilities are endless.
Whether it is with balloons, smoke bombs, signage, or just the two of you holding hands on a path, getting outdoors is a great way to add character to your engagement photo shoot. Whether you want to take photos on holiday of the two of you frolicking on the beach or in the desert, or you would prefer to opt for a beautiful session at a local garden or park, there are endless options.
Of course, you can’t talk about an outdoor engagement photoshoot without talking about sunset opportunities. Standing together hand in hand in front of the setting sun is such a timelessly romantic scene.
Tip- Whatever type of engagement photoshoot you go for, don’t go too trend crazy! The last thing that you want to do is create an “aged” look to your photos. While you may love today’s hot trends, think back to seeing wedding pics from the 70s or 80s. Some of them can be SO laughably dated! While it is fine to incorporate trends, don’t go overboard!
Congratulations! You are ready to tie the knot, and now it is the time to share your happiness.
