Sharing your engagement photographs to announce the big news is a great way to surprise your friends and family. Engagement photography is becoming popular and many couples are opting for it. It is a great way to spend some time together and also the best time to get some good clicks. These pictures are completely different from the photos taken on the wedding day.
This can be more of a casual and fun shoot just like a pre-wedding shoot. The only difference would be that this shoot is done right after the proposal while a pre-wedding shoot is done any time before the wedding.
A good thing to do is to shoot your engagement photos with your planned wedding photographer itself. This way you would get to know your photographer and also be more comfortable on your wedding day. Just in case you are unsure about a photographer this is good way to test the photographer. Also this kind of a candid shoot will let the photographer capture the real you. This would also help in case you are camera shy. These shoots could revolve around the things you like. The theme for the shoot could vary from fashion to rustic and you could make it interesting by using props.
Engagement photos capture the best in you and create a visual story of your love. The emotions in these pictures are priceless. These pictures can be used in many different ways apart from just for a keepsake purpose. They could create a prequel to the wedding album leading to the wedding pictures or you could use them for the save the date cards or incorporate them into your guestbook which is great way to share them with your family and friends.
