Showcase your sports fanatic side. Can you and your fiance be found watching the game on Sunday? If  so, then sport your favorite team jersey in your engagement photos. Heck, go to the stadium to capture your portrait like the above couple did, and please  note all the details in their photo. Besides custom Bride and Groom jerseys they also have a hand painted football that says Michelle loves David. Captured by Finding Light Photography.
Just gaze! Get cozy and just gaze into each others eyes. As silly as it sounds, it really does make for an incredibly romantic photograph. Exactly like the one above captured at Joshua tree by Kaysen Photography.
Do not disregard sunrise. If the weather will not cooperate try an alternative time. Shannie and Omar wanted to do a sunset session, but it was going to be 113 degrees at sunset. Instead they opted to do a sunrise engagement session. As you see it turned out equally as lovely. Captured by Brenda L. Munoz Photography
Ride your bike. If you love riding your bike together, incorporate that into your engagement photo. To personalize the photo this cute couple put a hand-painted wooden sign with their wedding date on the back of the bike. So perfect for their Save the Date cards. Megan and Michael’s fabulous Autumn engagement session in Central Virginia was captured by Dani Stephenson. You can see the rest of their engagement session here.
Hold Something! Have your photographer capture you and your love holding something. From a leaf, a piece of wood, a large piece of paper or anything for that matter, so latter your stationer can super impose your wedding info on the image like the one above from  3 Cats Photo.
Take the season into consideration. Christmas is such a fabulous time to get engaged, and we suggest embracing when you said, "Yes." Capturing your engagement photo in the midst of the happy holiday will preserve your happy moment in time forever. Captured by Eleven and West Photography.
Embrace the military. Don't be afraid to incorporate your military uniform into your engagement photos. Take note, this bride to be even wore anchor earrings to match their, "Navy Military," theme!

Fancy  always looks pretty. Jacob and Lily aren't the type of people to take photos but given such special occasion they felt this was the perfect time to capture who they are as a couple on film. They wanted the photos to not only represent our personalities but to be timeless with a touch of whimsy. They dressed up just for the occasion. Lily in a The Lacie 27" Tulle Skirt by Space46 Boutique (ps we might need one of these) paired with a top by Darla Tank by Club Monaco and roller shoes Nine West. This downtown Toronto engagement session was photographed every so beautifully by Julia Park.
Bring your own props & DIY paper rose. Lily also made these breathtaking paper flowers for their engagement photos. Here is how she did it : The flowers were handmade with doublet crepe paper, 180 gram florist crepe paper, florist tape. 18 gauge florist wire and wooden dowels. Each paper flower was made of 5 tear drop shaped petals and 15 heart shaped petals which were cut from doublet crepe paper, stretched then curled for a more life like effect before being taped with florist tape around a wooden dowel. Leaf shapes were cut out of 180 gram florist crepe paper and taped onto floral wire.Photographed by Julia Park.
Planning a big move after your wedding? Be sure to incorporate a location that was memorable to your and your love.

Go to a scenic location. If you have a favorite place that is breathtakingly beautiful, do not be afraid to capture that in a few of  your engagement photos,  like Jackie and Andy did.

Similar yet different outfits This may sound silly, but try to coordinate the style of your  outfits. You do not need to be all matchy match, but try to coordinate similiar styles. This means if your loves looks ultra fancy, than you look ultra fancy. Just like the adorable couple above hanging at the beach and captured by  Ilene Squires Photography.
Incorporate your favorite pastime together or where you met. Jane and Peter met at The Minikahda Club overlooking Lake Calhoun on a warm summer night.

Keep it real and simple Are blue jeans and boots your thing? If so, we highly suggest going with that look for your engagement shoot. Wear what feels comfortable to you. If you are not used to getting dressed up, it will reflect in your photos. Capturing your love, and feeling like yourself is what is most important. Trevor and Kaylene's  Ellensburg engagement session captured by Echo Photography is a fantastic example of this.
Incorporating  a cute sign into your wedding photo. It lways looks great like our couple above. His sign says, " I am her sugar,"  and her sign says, " I am his sweetie." We are also loving their super cute outfits. Take note of her sparkly sequined dress. Captured by Millie B Photography
Incorporate your wedding venue Will your wedding be at a winery or apple orchard? Incorporate the location into your engagement photos like Luz and Gabe did for their engagement photos. Captured by New England wedding photographer Sarah Jayne Photographer.
Coordinate with your surroundings. Amanda and David obviously took their Michigan surroundings into consideration when planning out their outfits. They seamless blend into their engagement photos captured by Little Blue Bird Photography.
Don't think about it and just kiss! Be present, be in the moment and just relish in this beautiful time together. Just like the two above! Beautifully captured at the beach during sunset by Yes Dear Studio. It really does not get more romantic than this.
