The A,B,C's of Engagement Photos

The idea of engagement shoots is a fairly new trend. Gaining popularity in the past 5 years or so, an engaged couple will schedule a separate photo shoot with their photographer anywhere from 3-9 months ahead of the wedding date.  This photo shoot will solely feature the couple and there is a lot of room for creativity with the location, props, and theme.  These pictures can be featured on the Save The Dates, on the couple's wedding website, and at the wedding if the couple wants framed pictures incorporated in the decor.  

Now a lot of couples initially think that e-photos have to be formal and serious, but the only rule is that there are no rules!  I know plenty of brides that we have all seen e-photos of a couple gazing in each other's eyes in some meadow and decided that is not for them.  This really is a fun opportunity that you probably won't have again.  I would definitely recommend figuring out your vision with your photographer ahead of time and to incorporate your interests and personalities into the shoot.  There is SO much room for personalization, so follow your ABC's- always be creative!

If this is something that tickles your fancy, I recommend checking out this post for basic guidelines/a starting place.  Here are some e-photos that may give you some inspiration.  Enjoy!
