Once you’ve picked your photographer for your engagement photos, the next step is to think about where you want to take these pictures. After all, they will forever commemorate the special moments that you shared as an engaged couple.
With these four suggestions, you can easily find the engagement photo location that speaks to you as a couple:
Places that are special to you as a couple: Whether it’s where you had your first day or your favorite place to hangout on a Saturday, choosing a place that is special to you as a couple tells your story.
We also find that another fun thing to do is to pick a place where you can do your favorite activity. Spend your Sunday mornings rollerblading? Love volunteering at the local animal shelter? Show a bit of your personality by shooting some of your engagement photos at these locations.
Places that are special to your city: Your engagement photos are a great way to show the city where you fell in love or where you got engaged. Large or small, you can find a landmark in your city or town that serve as special monuments for the location.
Our favorite picture-perfect spots for engagement photos in Houston include:
- The Discovery Green Park
- Houston Arboretum and Nature Center
- Water Wall in the Galleria
- The Fountains at the Texas Medical Center
- The Orange Show
Places that showcase your love: Picking a non-descript location such as a park can make sure the focus is on the two of you, which is preferred by some couples.
Outdoor portraits are beautiful and can be uniquely yours with an outfit, a pet, even your own props; or just the lush and beautiful scenery.
Places that reflect your favorite season: If your timeframe allows, think about capturing your photos during the peak of your favorite season. From autumn colors to the fresh green of spring, capturing your images in your favorite time of year is fun and can be unique. And yes, even a light rain can give you some fantastic engagement pictures!
When it comes to picking your location, you can often go to more than one – as long as the locations are close together. Where ever you choose, focus on making it a fun date and let the photographer capture your fun and love as a couple!
