Engagement Photo Advice: The Basics

Posted by aruchaevsky on Jan 09, 2013

With the new year, we usher in a new group of newly engaged couples, who will begin their wedding journey. Some couples cannot wait to get started and some will wait until the last minute, either way the end goal is the same: to have a great wedding and select the right vendors to help you make that happen.

One item early on your list may be an announcement or save-the-dates. This will usually require the expertise of a photography studio.

For couples, this is a great way to audition studios or begin to build a relationship with the one person, who will spend more time with you on your wedding day than anyone else–your photographer. Our professional advice when it comes to engagement photos is to select a location which is either special or symbolic to the couple.

It may be the location where he proposed or it may be the Jersey Shore, where you spend most of your summers, regardless make it special.

If you truly do not have a location in mind, discuss with your photographers some possibilities. Based on the couples interests and personality, we have recommended locations ranging from the beach to one of New York or New Jersey’s many park and gardens to the New York skyline or to a cobblestone road in a historic part of the state, which may feature some cast iron lamp post and benches.

Regardless of what you choose, this will be the first images of your road to marriage, and you will never forget it, so make it count!
