The Rise of the Engagement Photo-shoot

by - 1:30 pm

Getting engaged is one of the most exciting times in a couples life together, I should know having recently gotten engaged myself only a few short weeks ago. As my time as a wedding planner I have noticed the amount of effort that goes into an engagement announce has drastically increased over the last few years, specifically the rise of the 'Engagement Photo-shoot'. 

As a newly engaged couple I can definitely see the appeal of wanting to shout your big news from the roof tops...believe me it was difficult not to do this the minute my partner proposed. However personally we are a low key kind of couple... truth be told I don't class myself as overly photogenic, therefore we didn't opt for the increasing popular engagement shoot. However that being said, I have pulled together some of the best engagement photo-shoots I have come across over the years as a source of inspiration to those couples who are considering this to announce their big news to the world!

Why not kill two birds with one stone as they say! Bundle your engagement shoot in with your save the dates!

Including man's best friend!

Being a huge dog lover and owner of two small dogs myself, if I were to do an engagement shoot this would be right up my aisle! I love when couples incorporate their beloved pets in their wedding, whether that be on the engagement photos or on the big day itself.

The not so formal engagement portrait!

Some of my favourite engagement shoots come in the form of the less formal settings. It is great to see couples coming up with new, unique and funny ways of announcing their engagement news! After all life is all about laughter!

Each couple will have their own way of planning their wedding and announcing their engagement, whatever your style do it your way. Ending this post with some more traditional engagement shoots.
