Best Engagement Photography by Mango Studios
Engagement photography is so much more than a bonus offer included in your wedding package. If done right, these sessions will help you get to know your photographer so that on your actual wedding day you will be comfortable in front of the camera. But these sessions don’t have to be all about preparing for the big day— you did just get engaged, after all, why not have some fun with it?! Styled engagement photography is becoming an increasingly popular way to announce your betrothal because it allow couples to experiment with theme while creating some seriously pin-worthy images. If you are considering a styled engagement session, pick a theme that conveys your story. Think about real details of your love story and how you want them to translate in the photos. Start with an item that unites you (like a vintage car, for example) and build from there! When choosing props, remember quality over quantity. You don’t want to overwhelm the camera with a plethora of items all somewhat related to that vintage car. Keep it simple. A lacy dress paired with a leather jacket and a seriously dapper top hat will capture your theme without being distracting or overwhelming. Finally, choose a setting that is both meaningful and relates to your theme. Do you remember where you first met, or where he popped the big question? Maybe a favourite date spot? If there is a special location that ties to your theme, use it! This will lend a sense of legitimacy to your photographs in that every element from theme to props to location will be united, while the significance of the location to your relationship will add a deeper dimension to all the images. Styled engagement photography is a fun way to announce your wedding that will also provide you with some seriously meaningful images that can be cherished for a lifetime!
