I have been collecting creative ideas for engagement photos. Of course Lee and I will want some of the traditional posed photos, but I want us to have fun with the session too. For example, I would love to incorporate ice cream into one of our photos. Lee said he would like to incorporate dentistry. I think we will just have to incorporate dentistry by showing our pearly whites when we smile. :)
Here are some fun ideas I have found:
Back to back: simple and sweet
Balloons could be fun, and inexpensive.
I also like the idea of incorporating a small bouquet.
The two pictures above were taken on a bridge in our hometown. I definitely want to try to recreate these.
Bubbles! Cute! And again, inexpensive.
Since we met dancing, a dance pose could be fun. And maybe not just the cliche dip like you see in many other photos.
A perfect example of a close-up formal shot. And of course it's perfect: they are royals.
Love the light in this one! And i love how she is hugging him from behind.
Ice cream! It must be done. :)
Random, but cool: getting touchy-feely in the library.
I like shots in the middle of the road
One thing Lee and I both really dislike: the pictures where the girl/guy is standing in front, and the significant other is standing in the background, blurred out. I think this is a nice alternative. The focus is on the girl, but the guy is still part of the picture too.
Cute props make photo sessions fun. Maybe they should be "pears"? :)
I like the perspective on this one with the columns.
A fun save the date idea with a chalkboard.
Another save the date with a post-it note.
Too fun. The ring makes a perfect "o."
A unique optical illusion!
Here is another location in our hometown I think would be fun to use. This is underneath one of the bridges. I like the perspective the rectangles offer.
