Prepping for your Engagement Shoot

engagement photoshootAfter your man has proposed, you’d think getting married would be so easy. It’s not only after you think about the little details that you begin to realize getting everything perfect is hard work. One of the first and most important things you need to do is to announce your engagement to your family and friends. How else could you pull that off with flair better than showing them an elegant engagement album?

The Digital Age

While people now live in the digital world, it’s still important to have something tangible. Yes, digital photos are much easier to manipulate, and storing them is as easy as clicking your mouse, but what happens when your files get corrupted or if your computer or laptop gets infected by a virus? Besides, don’t you think keeping an album and looking through it with your family in the future is much more romantic than just sifting through the photos on the monitor?

Get it right

As these photographs would last forever, it’s important that you and your fiancé get the coolest possible shots. To do this, you need to consider a few things.

The first thing you should think of is finding a skilled photographer. A professional photographer will help you conceptualize a theme for your photo shoot. The next thing you should think about is the location of your shoot. After doing this, consult it with your photographer so he can figure out the best spots for the location and what kind of lighting he needs to set up on the day of the shoot. The last thing you should deliberate on is the clothes you and your partner will wear. Typically, you and your partner’s clothes should reflect your identity as a couple. Wearing matching clothes is also a good option.


The kind of album you choose may be just as important as the photographs you take, because a good quality engagement album would last much longer than cheap ones. Poor quality photo albums could break at the spine or be ruined by small amounts of moisture. The point of getting an engagement album is to preserve memories and this would only happen if the album is built to last.
