    It depends on your style and what you’re going for. But most commonly, it’s taken outdoors, so can be done at a park, flower field, beach, state park. Could be someplace that’s significant to both of you.!Wherever you think is pretty and fits your guys style. I also know a lot of brides who do studio shots which are then edited but they’re usually done in Asia. I’m hella extra so my two sets of pictures so far have been the beach (late summer) and in the mountains with snow. I have a set of pictures planned for every season. The formality to you up to you as well. Mine are all stylized/formal rather than casual. Maybe fall will be the casual one for us.

    Honestly, any place that makes you and your fiance feel comfortable and happy.

    DH and I took them in the park by his parents' place, because it had a baseball field and all the other classic trappings of a NYC park. (Mostly, we just wanted the baseball field.)

    However, if you love, say, bowling, got take them in a bowling alley. Friends of ours took them in a theatre and also in city streets.

    These are a chance to really express your personalities, so focus on what you love.

    Generally either someplace with great natural beauty (field, park, waterfront, city with architectural marvels, etc) or a place with some significance. I opted to go without an engagement shoot due to budget concerns after I got engaged, but if I did have one, I'd have gone back to my college campus where he and I met. There are a lot of good photo ops (with Testudo, near the sundial, by the alumni center fountain we strolled by on walks, at the chapel gardens... You get the picture). My sister did hers in her hometown, because it has lovely parks, a really cool tower, and charming shopfronts. It's really up to you. Wherever you go, it'd be good to choose a place with some variety of location and maybe an outfit change or two so that you can have some variety in your pictures. And have fun!

    My photographer recommended that we do it in a park of somewhere outdoors because our wedding is in an old Catholic Church and our reception is at a historic mansion. Since we won’t have a lot of nature pics on our wedding day, she said we should avoid those types of locations for our engagement photos to get some diversity!!

    We had two shoots—one while on vacation in Peru and one in a sunflower field. Both sets of pictures were lovely. I think what matters more with engagement photos is the time of day you take them. “Golden hours” aka sunrise and sunset have the best lighting. For both shoots, we took ours at sunset.

    Ours were outside at the park where we got engaged. Anywhere with a nice backdrop or sentimental meaning is great.

    I did something super off beat and took mine at a pop up museum. it was because i wanted something super colorful and quirky. one of my friends took hers at her favorite ice cream shop and that was super cute.

    Only you can decide that. We ended up driving around a couple different cities and realized we had know clue what we were doing. So we gave our photographer ideas of how we wanted the pics to look, followed our her lead and our pictures turned out beautiful!

    We’re hopefully going to have an engagement session. Our plan is to do it downtown near our old stomping grounds by our first apartment we lived in before buying our house.
