Finding the right place for your engagement session can sometimes be a little tricky, and for a lot of our couples we end up sending a list of a few recommended places for them to consider. But to make that list I always ask the same first question – are you thinking of a more rural or urban location?, as that helps me narrow things down a bit. And although I offered up a few rural locations when I first chatted with Chantal + Brandon about options, I knew from the get-go that they would end up with something more urban. Because, well, as you can clearly see, Chantal + Brandon definitely fit beautifully into the urban scene and the Byward Market was such a great fit for their session!
You know that you want an engagement session, have picked the right season and time of day for it and even the perfect location. Now what are you going to wear and what is your spouse-to-be going to wear alongside you?
Our final special feature on engagements is all about what to wear to your engagement session. From dressing for the season to coordinating your outfits together, we’re sharing a few of our favourite tips and tricks to looking picture perfect for your session.
Okay, so you know you want to do an engagement session, and you even know when you want to do it, but now you’re stuck on the where? There are so many options available to you when it comes to a location for your engagement session and yet somehow you can’t think of even one!
When it comes right down to it, the most important thing to consider is that the location makes sense to who you are as a couple and what you like to do together. So with that in mind, here are a few tips on how to choose the perfect location for your engagement session!
If you have checked out our portfolio, or are a regular reader here on the blog, you have likely noticed that the majority of our sessions involve a great deal of nature. We typically like to do sessions in natural settings, incorporating the trees, leaves and flowers into our photos as much as possible. And for the most part, our clients like that too, which makes sense as you tend to draw in the same type of client that you show in your work. But every once in a while it is really nice to change it up, and shoot in a much more urban area, and this of course leads us into Emilie + Brandyn’s engagement session.
Emilie + Brandyn’s session was full of great urban locations, amazing graffiti and murals, and some cat photos – because what’s an engagement session without a few cat photos?!
