2. Go Creative with Props

Go beyond “Soon to be Mr and Mrs” kind of chalkboard quotes and try something new, something unusual. Literally, sky’s the limit. You can use your pet, flowers, flat, bicycle, fishing poles and what not as props.

3. Customize It

It can be your secret to an absolutely brilliant engagement photo session. Choose a location with which you two have some special memories attached. If you have some interesting hobbies like vintage cars or anything, try to incorporate the same.

4. Pick the Right Clothes

Choose clothes which compliment your personality, your style and the surroundings. You need to feel comfortable as well as confident. Coordinating with your partner’s dress is a nice idea, but, try not to colour-match it.

5. Get Your Makeup and Hair Done by Professionals

To be the star of the show, you must look like one. For a flawless face and hair, take professional help. This little investment will help a lot in making it a great photo session.

6. Clean the Ring

Do not miss this step at any cost! Make sure that you go to the engagement photo shoot with clean ring for a clear and amazing close-up ring shot. Of course, you don’t want the macro lens finding out all the hidden dust particles.

7. Just be Yourself!

Posed shots are amazing, no doubt. But, candid shots are almost always the showstoppers. They say it all without saying anything. So, be yourself and be natural. That’s the best and most unique thing about you and your love story.

8. Eat Before the Photo Session

Because you don’t want to look famished and grumpy in the engagement pictures. So, make sure that you have a small meal before you head for the photo session.

9. Engage in Some PDA

This is your one fabulous chance to do all the PDA and enjoy it without worrying about public eye. People will surely swoon over the final photographs!
