How to Prepare for Engagement Photos: Choosing a Location

If you are planning on having engagement photos taken, there is no time like the present to start thinking about locations and what to wear.  If you are still on the fence about whether or not you should even have an engagement session, I always strongly encourage them.  It is a chance to "test drive" your wedding photographer to make sure you are a good fit personality-wise and it is a great opportunity to see if their working style fits your expectations and needs.

Engagement photos are traditionally published in your hometown newspaper to announce your engagement (because your parents are very proud of you and want EVERYONE to know).  They can also be used on your save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, on display at your wedding, or in a guest book for your wedding day.

Ideas for engagement session locations could include:

  • The place where you met
  • Where you became engaged
  • Doing your favorite activity
  • Your favorite outdoor location
  • Even in your home!
