Must-Have Engagement Photos From Your Session

Spring has officially sprung, and we all know what that means: wedding and engagement season is about to be in full swing!

Spring is a wonderful time to shoot your engagement photos. Color is returning to the world, and soon enough fresh florals will be adding lively pops to the natural scenery around Richmond. But what kind of photos do you want?

Capturing your unique love story is what I love to do, but there are a few classic engagement images that will always be a perfect way to share your joy!

Show Off The Ring!

I’ll start with the obvious one: give that ring a close-up!

Your ring is the shining star of your engagement shoot, and whether you keep it a simple close-up or style it by sipping champagne or holding a bouquet of spring blooms you want to show it off! Be sure to give your ring a nice polish before the day of the photo session. You want it to sparkle like the centerpiece it deserves to be!

A Memorable Landscape

Is there a place that means a lot to you, or a view that takes your breath away every time you see it? Consider incorporating it into your engagement photos!

Having a photo of you in such a special location will be a great way to make your pictures unique to you and more meaningful for memories 20 years from now. If you use them on social media or in mailed announcements, it also gives your friends and family the opportunity to share in that amazing view!

Snuggle Up Close

This pose is particularly popular: snuggle up close to your partner, lean your head on their shoulder, and then give the camera a smile! It works from both sides, capturing your individual joy and showing your love and contentment at this particular moment. You might even close your eyes and daydream about your future together!

Showcase Your Love & Intimacy

Picking poses that appear to be candid shots where you are lost in the moment with your loved one is always successful!

Slow dance like no one is watching. Lay in the grass and stare adoringly at one another. Coordinate with me to stage a romantic picnic setting…the opportunities are endless, and it’s the perfect way to showcase your personalities as well as your love story.
