Engagement Photos

An engagement photography session is a great way to show your distinct love for one another and to also prepare the two of you for being in front of the camera on your wedding day.  During your engagement session, you'll have the opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer even better and vice versa. During this photo shoot your photographer learns all the little things that make you a great couple. The way in which you interact with each and feed off each others energy will make for great engagement photos and practice for the big day.

The traditional in-studio engagement photograph is no longer the standard. Photographers will go "on location" to a spot that means dearly to the two of you. When trying to determine your setting for your engagement session, consider the location as well as fun props. Do you want a day outdoors riding bikes, or maybe you have a favorite pub and love to play pool? However you decide, make sure it is something you both enjoy!

Below are just a few ideas to help make your engagement photographs express yourself:

Massachusetts beaches

  Massachusetts parks
George Street Photo & Video

Beach: a popular choice. Grab a brightly colored kite or just yourself and flip flops! If you have a beach with a lighthouse nearby, this is a great addition to photos.

Train Station: a great spot if you met or start your journey together everyday on the train! Commuter rails are in many towns - hop on inside the station, train or on the tracks.   Swan Boats/Boston Garden: take a ride on the swan boats or picnic on the Gardens. The lush green grass or fun swan boats enhance the photos.    
 

Some other great locations to consider for your engagement photos:

  • Swings at a playground
  • Walking your pet
  • Mini Golf or Golf Course
  • Canoe or fishing on a lake
  • Umbrella in the rain
  • Building a snowman
  • Building a sand castle
  • Walking around a music or art festival/museum
  • Carnival or Amusement Park
 
  • Tip: with photographers' blogs easily at your fingertips, browse through their recent engagement pics. Not only will you get ideas for your session, but you might just find a wedding photographer that has a style that you truly relate to.
