Today at Bayside Bride we’re exploring our favorite engagement photo trends! From close-ups of your newest bling to the furriest members of our families, there are just so many to choose from! Here are just a few of the ones we’re loving…
- CLOSE UP OF THE RING -
Admit it, you love showing off your new bling! So how does one really showcase that beauty? With a perfect close-up, of course! A hazy or repetitive background can really contrast the clean crisp lines and clarity of the diamond, allowing your new rock to be front and center!
- PROPS -
Your engagement shoots should feature not only your fairytale love, but also your unique personalities! Do you love baking together? Were you high school sweethearts? Utilize props to add a fun and different twist to your shots and stand out from the rest!
- SLOWING TIME -
That moment you first lay eyes on each other, that first kiss, the moment he asks you to be his bride, what do these all have in common? Everything around you seems to slow down, almost stop, and the only thing that matters is the exact moment you’re in! Why not try to capture that in your engagement photos? There are various ways to recreate it but one of our favorites is to contrast the movement of a busy city with a passionate kiss. With a photo like that, consider everything around you ceasing to exist.
- SPOTLIGHTS & SILHOUETTES -
Spotlights and silhouettes put all the focus where it should be, directly on you and your hubby! Without the distractions of a background or a busy environment, a viewer’s eye is drawn directly to you both like a magnet!
- INCLUDING PETS -
I don’t know about you but I think I can speak for a majority of people who would consider their pet as much a part of their family as their own blood relatives! Make your engagement shoot a family affair and include your precious pet! I mean really, whose heart doesn’t melt the moment they see a picture of an adorable pooch!
