Now that you’ve said “yes”, it’s time to celebrate! Before the wedding planning begins, it’s always fun to celebrate your engagement with some gorgeous photos that you’ll cherish forever. Whether you’re looking for secluded, romantic photos or fun and playful, here are some of our favorite engagement photo shoot ideas.
Take your engagement photos to new heights with the city skyline in the background. Not sure where to get the best city view? Try finding a bridge that overlooks the water or a rooftop view of the city for some truly breathtaking photos.
Where You Met
Whether you met at a coffee shop, a bar or even while traveling, that location is sure to bring back memories which makes it perfect for your engagement photo shoots. If it’s somewhere public, try talking to the owner to see if you can arrange an hour before or after closing for you to grab some photos.
Plan a Picnic
What could be more romantic than a tasty picnic for two? Find an isolated area with wide-open space and bring all your favorite food and drink while your photographer snaps away. We recommend planning your picnic around sunset for that perfect golden hour glow.
Stay at Home
Nothing is more cozy and comfortable than your own home, which also makes it a great photo location! Try finding a spot in your home with some great natural light, whether that’s your bedroom, living room or even kitchen. You’ll get some beautiful shots when you both feel most at ease in your own home.
Take a Dip
Michigan is home to so many beautiful lakes, why not include them in your engagement photos? While you may not feel like braving the cold water, hop in a boat with your fiancé and photographer for some romantic shots with nobody else around.
If you’ll be taking your engagement photos in the winter, a snowy white wonderland makes for a gorgeous backdrop. This one may be a bit harder to plan, but the results will be priceless – especially after a big snowfall. Be sure to keep an eye on the weather and choose a location that’s easy to access in the snow.
