Your engagement is such a fun time… the excitement of spending the rest of your life with the one you love, all the wedding planning, and picking out your dress, so why not showcase that fun in your engagement photos? There are so many fun engagement photo ideas that you and your soon-to-be can do. You can choose to be goofy and showcase your crazy side, like many of the photos here, or you can make your photos be in a location that you both love or do something you love.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the setting, location, and theme so you can come up with fun engagement photo ideas for you and your love.
1. Think About Both of Your Interests.
You want your photos to showcase what you and your soon-to-be husband or wife are both interested in. What do you both love? Do you love the outdoors or a specific sports team? Did you meet at a theme park, on a college campus, or at a beautiful wine tasting while on vacation with both of your families? Plan ahead with the theme or location of the photos you would like to have so when you discuss these ideas with your photographer, you can give them some ideas… they can then bring in their photographer’s eye to help narrow down the most photogenic places or locations to shoot your photos!

2. Don’t Be Afraid to Be Creative
Do you want to do something that seems totally out of the box? No problem! If your photographer thinks that the idea will work, try it! Do you both love to run the Color Me Rad and think incorporating throwing paint on each other in your photos would be fun? Why not? You may be so surprised at how fun those photos turn out!

3. Be Sure to Plan for the Unexpected
Much like your wedding, especially if you are planning an outdoor one, it is always good to plan ahead for anything unexpected that could happen. Do you want to have an outdoor session but it is gray and pouring rain? Is it so humid outside that your hair is not doing exactly what it should be doing? Do not worry, work with your photographer and together you will take amazing photos. Or, what if you are taking photos in a boat and that boat decided to break down or sink? Definitely, something that would change up your plan but you never know how the photos may come out!

4. Do Not Let A Big Idea Discourage You
Is there a location that seems difficult to get into that you really want to take your fun engagement photo at? Are you just not sure if it will be worth it in the end? Don’t get discouraged about your ideas. Make sure you talk to your photographer and he or she can help you to prepare the concept that you have in your mind, and it will most likely be worth it in the end!
