Engagement Photo Shoot Trends

There’s nothing more lovely than an engagement photo shoot done right. Not only can you tell your love story through gorgeous images, but they can also make beautiful keepsakes (more on that later!)

Some trends come and go and you certainly don’t want your photos to end up looking dated. That’s why we picked out four hot trends for engagement photos that will definitely stand the test of time!

1. Background Check

An interesting background can tell your loved ones a lot about your love story. Did you fall in love in fall? Did he propose in Paris? Do you like romantic strolls on the beach? A gorgeous background can also add a color pop (think red brick walls in the Back Bay or the beautiful gardens in Boston Common.)

2. Playtime with Props

When you and your partner play with props, you fall into a world that is just you and your love having fun. This gives your photographer a chance to catch a lot of spontaneous smiles and laughs between you and your Groom-To-Be. Ask your photographer if he works with props or bring some of your own!

3. Be (Authentically) You

Is there an activity you and your mate love to do? Surfing? Hiking? Playing Scrabble? When you’re engrossed in an activity you love, there’s no time for jitters or overly posed photos. It’s also a wonderful way to reveal a little more about who you are as a couple. (We love how this one couple, below, reenacted their first date!)

4. Get Ready for Your Closeup

Images that really jumped out at us were engagement photos that didn’t show all of the Bride and Groom-To-Be.  Wait, here us out!  One hot trend is, after you have captured your more traditional poses, catch some beautiful close-ups.  These can make gorgeous prints in your home that are truly works of art!
