In a Thousand Words: 8 Epic Engagement Shots

If the typical engagement photo says a thousand words, how many more can you say with photos that express your love and personality?

When you incorporate something you love into your engagement photos, whether it be a sport, a talent, a favorite food, a spot you frequent as a couple, or a job you love, your photos will show your personality. Nothing will feel better than when your friends and family receive your engagement photos and can’t stop saying “They’re so you!”

Don’t be afraid to be unique! Think about what makes the two of you happiest (other than each other) and theme your engagement shoot off of that. Here’s a few examples of couples embracing and sharing their hobbies.

For the man or woman who spends many an afternoon on the green, an engagement shoot on a golf course is a must-have. Make sure something golf related is in the focus or it may look like just another shoot with a grassy background.

Or share your musicality with your soulmate by playing your favorite instrument for your photo shoot. If music is part of your life, it’s undoubtedly a big part of your relationship too. Break out that guitar and do what feels natural; it’ll make some great shots and really show the connection between the two of you.
