How to Choose an Engagement Photoshoot Location

Every aspect of your relationship is perfect to you. You and your partner can be together in happy times, be there for each other during the sad times, and you can find your own happiness in life, together. Your relationship is one of a kind, and it even has its own personality. Together, you are unstoppable. And now you are engaged, congratulations!

Now, it’s time to celebrate your new relationship status and plan your engagement photoshoot. This is also a great way to announce your big news to your loved ones. You likely have a thousand creative ideas running through your head to make your engagement photos unique. However, there is one very important element to consider, your photoshoot location.

We believe that your engagement photos are not only a wonderful way to preserve this new point in your life, but also to celebrate the huge step you just took. That’s why, here at Joseph Hummel Photography, we have put together a few pointers on how to choose an engagement photoshoot location. If you want stunning engagement photos, be sure to keep reading to learn how you can create them:

  • Timing is extremely important. Timing plays a huge role in your relationship, after all you wouldn’t want to become engaged too early, or have missed out entirely. And, it will certainly play a huge role in choosing your location for your photoshoot. Consider what time of year it is. The sun is shining, it’s nice and toasty outside. Now, think about your location; Is it beautiful right now? Or has the heat gotten the best of it? Is it open, or accessible this time of year? What hours of the day will provide the best lighting for your photos? These questions will help you to determine the time of day to schedule your photoshoot, as well as determine if your location is really the best spot for a photoshoot right now.

  • The passions that you take pride in. It helps to think of your engagement photos as a chance to express your own love story. For example, if you and your partner both share a passion in life, or a favorite hobby, you can reflect it within your engagement photos. So, if you both enjoy hiking, then your favorite hiking trail could be the perfect spot. If you share a love for it, why not set your romantic engagement shoot in a place that honors it?

  • The place that makes you smile. You and your partner have had your fair share of adventures and experiences. There are certainly many different places that hold a special meaning to you, from the place where you proposed to the spot you exchanged your first “I love you”. These places play an important role in your love story, and hold sentimental value. They could serve as the perfect photoshoot location.

Capturing your engagement while it is still new is a great way to preserve that bubbly and exciting feeling that you share with your partner. These are a few tips to help you choose the perfect location to capture your own precious engagement photos. Here at Joseph Hummel Photography, as an Lake Tahoe engagement photographer, we would be honored to capture your engagement photos.
