The secret to finding perfect engagement locations is, of course, finding a beautiful place. However, it does not only depend on that. You must also consider if you and your partner will be comfortable of the place. This is important in order for the two of you to look natural in shoots. Another thing that you should consider before scouting for location is that: the place must bring out the romantic but pure and innocent love of you and your partner. Research for places that you may both have happy memories together. You could even choose places where you and your partner first met. To give you some other ideas, go over these potential engagement shoot locations below.
Among the best engagement, photos are taken in locations surrounded by nature. It’s perfect because it gives off beautiful contrast and accentuates you and your partner’s love from the simplicity and pureness of the background. You can research for attractive tourist sites and look for places that you think will suit you. You might as well have a vacation after the shoot.
The vastness of open places creates photos that not only puts great focus on you, but also gives off the sense of ‘a light in a dark and empty room’ feeling. It will feel like the stark background represents the vastness of the world, and there, the two of you still found each other.
Still scouting for location? Buildings and great architectures will also be a great choice. Research for great buildings that will bring out your best engagement photos. Buildings will let your photos play with scales, and the great designs will give away the feeling that the world may have design for itself, but you and your partner are especially designed for each other.
There are still so many more unique ideas to choose for a perfect engagement shoot locations. However, remember another important factor, which is the photographer’s communication with bride and groom. The photographer’s mission is to be in sync, and the couple should be comfortable in working with him/her in order for him/her to capture natural and fleeting moments.
So that’s it. Have you found your perfect location?
