Engagement Photography Styles & Locations
Congratulations On Your Engagement!
As you start off in your wedding planning journey, let JD Entertainment help you in one of your first milestone events…Engagement Pictures!
Besides being a fun bonding experience for you as a newly engaged couple, engagement photos can serve several purposes!
Most commonly, if you are planning on sending out Save-The-Dates or wedding announcements, couple’s will usually decide to add a favorite picture or two from their engagement shoot.
Another way that couple’s often choose to use their favorite engagement shot is as a larger print with in a matted frame, in place of a guest book at their shower or reception for guests to sign.
Engagement photography is also useful to serve as a “rehearsal” for your wedding photography! It is a helpful step we suggest into getting comfortable with being in front of the camera and learning the style of your photographer. Of course, the most important aspect of engagement photography is having the special memento of a love-filled & exciting time in your life!
Choosing Your Engagement Style – Here are some things to consider:
Personality– Your personality as a couple should always shine through! Are you goofy, laid back, nature lovers, glam & sophisticated, or traditional?
Hobbies and other interests – Do you share any special hobbies, love of a particular thing, or something you bond over as a couple? Photo props are welcome and always make your engagement shoot more unique and one of a kind!
Location, Location, Location! –
Do you enjoy exploring Downtown or exploring the great outdoors? Urban or Rustic?
Think about the place you first met or just a favorite spot the two of you love to go! If you get stuck on choosing, our Professional Michigan Photographers can always suggest locations!
Sports Fanatic or Alma Mater– Do you enjoy watching a particular sporting event together? Tigers, Red Wings, Lions, or Pistons… include your Love of your favorite team or Alma Matter into your engagement shoot!
Specific Shots – Our Pro photographers will of course walk you through the engagement photo process with posing and picture ideas but it also always helps to be prepared! Look through some engagement photos to get a feel for the style, shots and even posing that you like! Have an idea of common engagement shoot pictures & posing that you love and share them with your photographer.
Seasonal Shots – Michigan Winters are cold but the Engagement Photos come out great!
Advice from our Pros!
“Choose clothes that fit well — to the season, the location, and to you. I always encourage ladies to get their nails done because ring shots are always in order!” – Pro JD Entertainment Photographer Abi
“The best advice I give before ANY PHOTOSHOOT is to relax! And I always say if you feel awkward or too “posed” in your photo then it’s going to look off. So let the photographer know so we can make adjustments.” – Pro JD Entertainment Photographer Nick
