How to Take Insta-Worthy Engagement Photos

Features

Engagements are such an amazing time in a couple’s life and a photo shoot is a perfect way to capture this time to turn it into tangible memories to be treasured for years to come.

Additionally, an engagement session is a way for couples to see what it feels like to be in front of a camera and it will help get rid of the jitters before the big day!

I recently spoke to Blue Nile, the world’s leading online retailer of diamond engagement rings, to share my professional tips for taking beautiful, insta-worthy engagement photos.

Here are my top 3 pieces of advice for a great engagement shoot:

Dress up

You don’t often get the opportunity to have professional photos taken so make the most of it and dress up! For the ladies, long flowy dresses are huge right now as they add romance to any photo, and for the gentlemen, a well-fitted suit is the perfect complement.

Trust your photographer

Trust your photographer with regards to timing for your engagement session. He/she will be a great resource for picking the time that best suits their style of photography and the location you have chosen.

If you’re nervous about posing, be sure to choose an experienced photographer who will guide you through a variety of poses.
