Decided to get married? Then you are probably planning a gorgeous engagement shoot and are going to make some save the dates with these shots. How to make them perfect and how to spend a great time while being shot? Here are some ideas that may help you and may serve a source of inspiration.
Wear something comfy and maybe warm if it’s rather cold outside. Choose something that fits your usual style, for example, don’t choose high heels if you usually wear sneakers and flats, you’ll feel uncomfortable and such emotions will be seen in the pictures and can spoil the whole experience. Take the place you’ve chosen into consideration: if it’s woodlands, heels and dresses may be not a very good choice. Don’t forget that it’s a couple shoot, and your outfits should be in the same style or coordinated somehow else. You may wear jeans and sweaters or long sleeves and some sneakers or shoes, or go for the same print shirts, for example, plaid, which is very cozy and fall-like. If it’s chilly, wrap you two in one blanket, it will be very cozy and sweet.
Take the advantage of the location you have – fall nature is unbelievably beautiful, and I must confess that it’s my favorite season. Colorful leaves, sunlight playing on them, gorgeous rivers and lakes, beautiful forests and fields – there can’t be a more perfect backdrop for a loving couple and just walking there may be very inspiring and joyful. You may also hint on your future wedding venue with your engagement photos, for example, if you are going to the woods, show it, make save the dates with a boat ride if it’s a lake wedding.
