When it comes to planning your engagement session, the top 2 things couples stress about the most is outfits and location. While I have plenty of engagement sessions on the blog for some outfit inspiration, I’m here to help with the latter today! So let’s talk about how to choose your engagement session location – no matter where you’re located.
The location for Kenzie and Brad’s engagement session made perfect sense for them as a couple. And honestly, they are the perfect example of each thing to consider when finding the perfect spot for your engagement session.
Think about what you and your partner like to do together. From skiing to playing board games at a local coffee shop, the best photos will be of you two in your element. Chat with your photographer about your hobbies and what draws you to one another. It’ll be a no-brainer to find the perfect location after that!
When thinking about what season to take your engagement photos in, there are a few factors to consider. Think about what your favorite season is, what season you’re getting married in, or if there’s a particular activity you want to capture you two doing. Some couples prefer to have their engagement session in the opposite season as their wedding, while others don’t have time to do so.
There’s something so fun about getting your gallery back and seeing a variety of settings. If you and your partner love to window shop your town’s boutiques and then take your dog for a walk on your favorite trail, there’s no better time than to capture those things! It’ll be much more interesting to look back at your photos and see a contrast between locations. Pro Tip: When you change locations, change your outfits!
Whether you and your partner choose to take photos at the place you had your first date, your family’s farm, or your hometown, choosing a meaningful spot is a great place to start. Your hearts will be full when you look at your walls and see the two of you in your favorite place. Or, travel to place you’ve never been before! There’s something so heartwarming about experiencing a new place as a couple, too.
At the end of the day, remember that your engagement photos are meant to highlight you as a couple. It’s an opportunity to document a beautiful chapter in your life together, and celebrate your commitment to one another.
