I am not a big fan of posed engagement photos because posing stifles the natural energy level of the couple. So what do you do about engagement shoots that are inherently posed photo sessions? Turn your engagement session into a story told through the camera, of course! In today’s blog I will give you a list of creative engagement photo shoot ideas and introduce you to Ariel and Jeremiah, who turned their engagement session into a documentary about how they love to cook.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! I thought sharing with you the Astoria Park engagement photos of Meredith and Jonathan would be the perfect way to end a perfect Sunday afternoon.
I recently shot an engagement portrait of Aimee and Colin at NYC’s High Line and the surrounding meatpacking district. In case you’re not familiar, the High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is an extremely popular tourist destination in New York, and my recommendation to anyone wanting to have a photo shoot there is to do what we did: get there early on a weekday. At 10:00 a.m. on a Wednesday, we virtually had the place to ourselves which resulted in some great shots.
