10 Totally Chill Engagement Photo Ideas




Your engagement photos will be priceless mementos of this most magical time in your life.




And while your engagement photo shoot offers  an opportunity for you and your wedding photographer to get creative with your engagement photo poses and settings, at the end of the day you want your engagement photos to reflect your own tastes and style.

So if you are a more laid back engaged couple, not inclined to have off-the-wall or even innovative engagement photo shots, you will appreciate these 10 totally chill engagement photo ideas, from Bridal Guide: 

Have you ever looked at those beautiful, perfectly posed engagement photos and thought to yourself, “That’s so not us?” Well, you’re not alone. At the end of the day, you want your pictures to reflect your personality, so don’t try to force things that feel unnatural. If you’re a laid-back couple, say, “I do” to super casual engagement sessions rather than getting all fancy with your outfit or your locale. You’ll look so much more comfortable if you just stay true to who you are. Not sure how to nail your photos?
