Tips on where to take engagement photos

Feb 20, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography, local wedding photographer in Prescott, can capture your special day and create artistic wedding photos.Unlike many wedding shoots that are traditionally very posed and more formal, engagement sessions offer couples more variety, opportunity, and fun. Prescott family photographer Aris Affairs Photography offers these helpful hints in making your engagement photo shoot a treasured memory.

Make it a day
Make your engagement photo session a part of a beautifully full day focused on you and your beloved. Rather than sandwiching a session somewhere between errands and obligations, devote the entire day to your engagement. Consider beginning your day together with an intimate brunch at your favorite restaurant. Your photographer could even meet you there to snap a few cute shots before moving to your primary location.

Set the real scene
Location, location, location doesn’t just apply to real estate. Your engagement photos should reflect you as a couple. Before you think about heading out to your local park or historic hotel lobby, think about the locations that truly reflect your interests. Do you binge watch cooking shows, then test your talents in the kitchen? Do you flex your collective muscles hiking and biking Prescott’s amazing trails? Incorporate the interests that brought you together in the first place into your photo shoot.

Wait for the sun
There are better times of the day than others for taking outdoor photos and they all revolve around the sun. If you’re looking for that golden, glorious light in your photos you’re looking for the time of day just before sunset called the ‘golden hour’. Photos taken mid-day may be more convenient but the day’s earlier sun is often harsher because it’s directly overhead. Both sunrise and sunset are optimum times for beautifully and naturally well-lit pictures.
