Tips for Choosing a Location for Your Engagement Photos

Now that you have made one of the most important decisions of your life, to get married, you may have thought that you were getting a break before making any big decisions. But, it is time to announce your new engagement. Photography is a beautiful way to announce your big news, and it also allows you to highlight the relationship that you and your partner share.

Your engagement photos will be one of the many important photoshoots that you and your partner will schedule. It marks the beginning of your path to marriage, and spending the rest of your lives together. However, it requires more thought than just booking a date and time. In fact, the location you choose for your engagement photos plays a big role in how they will turn out.

Here at Joseph Hummel Photography, we believe that engagement photos are a great way to celebrate your new relationship status. That’s why we have put together a few tips for choosing a location for yours. To learn how you can choose the perfect setting for your heartfelt photos, be sure to read on:

  • Think About Your Hobbies. Take a second to think about you and your partner’s hobbies. Do you enjoy golf, pottery, bird watching, hiking, scoping out the newest movies, or even sailing? No matter your hobby, it can inspire the perfect location for your engagement photoshoot. If you both love exploring and hiking, you can choose a location that showcases a woodsy appeal, such as among a forest or trails. Or, if you would rather be sculpting works of art out of clay, you can book your photoshoot to take place at your favorite pottery studio. Use your hobbies to inspire a great location.

  • A Location with Meaning. For your entire relationship, which locations hold the most meaning for you both? If you are having trouble thinking of locations, it may help to recollect on vital moments within your relationship, such as where you met, where you proposed, or even where you were the moment you knew you were in love. For example, if you are high school sweethearts, you can showcase a throwback and stage your engagement photos at your high school. Your location has the potential to add personalization to your images.

  • The Right Timing. No matter the location you choose, it’s important to ensure you choose the right time, too. If it’s an outdoor location, consider the time of day that will present the best light, and when there will be the least amount of foot traffic from people visiting your spot. If it’s an indoor location, be sure to check business hours or times when there will be a large amount of people present for an event.

Your engagement photos will truly be beautiful if they are captured in a stunning location. These are just a few tips to assist you in choosing the perfect setting for yours.
