What are Engagement Photos?

Engagement pictures are an exploding trend these days.

I've seen just as many engagement pictures as I have wedding ones! Here's why we are jumping on the bandwagon:

1. To use them as a part of the wedding decor
2. To get a taste of what it will be like as center of the camera's attention
3. To capture this time as a newly engaged couple

Plus, it will be fun!!!

I want our engagement photos to be unique! I'm not thinking Sears still shots, I'm going impromptu. Here are some ways we plan to jazz up our session:

1. Incorporate the outdoors or go someplace fun
2. Use props like balloons or food
3. Have a versitile wardrobe

We're going to save on money by asking a good friend, relative or photography student (at the nearby community college) to take the pictures.

Here are a few good reads I found on the new trend:
