Mississauga engagement photography tips
Here are a few priceless secrets that will hopefully allow you to achieve a similar experience with lovely pictures that reflect the magic of your relationship!
INSPIRATION CAN COME FROM ANYWHERE
Look at as many engagement pictures as you can–I seriously combed through hundreds–to come up with fun, creative ideas. Consider the photos of your photographer as well as those of other artists from around the web. This should prove valuable when it comes to locations, props, outfits, and the style of photos you
SELECT LOCATIONS THAT REFLECT YOUR PERSONALITY
The backdrops for your pictures are important! Think about which spots in the city of your engagement shoot best reflect your personalities and energy; ideally, it is good if at least a few locations are personally meaningful to you as a couple.
PROPS CAN ADD BALANCE TO YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
Bring as many happy props as you can … and please do not underestimate their importance, for they can add fun, spice, and uniqueness to your day. Not only will creative props help distract you from being photographed, but they also offer a welcome balance to the kissing and affection photos. We used Champagne, confetti, funny sunglasses, two bouquets of colorful flowers, and bubbles.
PRACTICE KISSING THAT WILL TAKE THEIR BREATH AWAY
I don’t know about you, but we had never kissed in front of a camera before, and we were not sure how our kiss would actually look on film. Accordingly, we set up a video camera on our computer, practiced and recorded our kiss, and then watched our footage to see how we did. Ha, ha! I felt like such practice would pay handsome dividends when called upon to display affection in front of the lens of a relative stranger.
