Use words. It’s said that a picture speaks a thousand words. Since a picture already has so many why not add a couple more? Set the mood or tell a story with some cute 3D letters in your shoot.

DIY some props. One of the most popular ways to spruce up an engagement session is props, props, and more props! Most of them are easily DIY-able and the sky is pretty much the limit on what you make and how you make it.

Engagement Photo Styling Tip 8

Incorporate your lifestyle/hobbies. Your engagement should ultimately be a reflection of you and the things you love, namely your cute spouse-to-be! There’s always room for a little more love though, so think about including hobbies or passions into your shoot somehow. Photography: Taryn Rahl | Source: The Pretty Blog

include pets in your engagement photo

Engagement Photo Styling Tip 9

Include pets. Your furry four-legged friends are definitely an important part of the relationship so it makes sense for them to be a part of the shoot. They’re undeniably cute as well so what other reason would you need? Photography: Clayton Austin | Via:  Green Wedding Shoes

Engagement Photo Styling Tip 10

Choose a destination engagement location. There’s no rule saying you have to take your engagement photos close to home. Were you hoping for a destination wedding but it just wasn’t practical for guests and budget? Take the opportunity to go there for your engagement session instead! Or just use it as an excuse to travel and get away with your spouse-to-be.

Accept Help from Others

From The Bride: Accept other people’s offers to help with the wedding and avoid the temptation to try and do everything yourself! It can be very hard for me, and I’m sure lots of other DIY brides, to give up control, but fight the urge to be overly concerned with every tiny detail.

When you’re doing a DIY wedding, there are lots of small projects that helping hands make go by much more easily. Family and friends will offer to help and they’re not just trying to be polite! Accept their help and take advantage of the great talents your friends and family have
