Congratulations, you’re engaged and one of the first and most fun items to check off the wedding planning timeline is your engagement photos! This is the perfect opportunity to let your friends and family to know more about you and your fiancé’s personal styles and help set the theme and mood for your wedding. Embrace props that showcase your relationship. Are some of your favorite date nights evenings at the Seattle Opera in black tie or are you more likely to be found wondering the grassy knolls of Discovery Park? Customize your engagement photos to reflect these traits and don’t forget too add engagement shoot props! Adding props into your photo session is not only a great way to help you and your partner “get into the spirit” of the photos (like holding those Venti Starbucks coffee cups because you’re both caffeine aficionados) but they also help to tell the story of you. Props can range from the simple, like exampled above, to the grand, like using your godmothers’ beloved MG TF that she lets you borrow for road trips along the Oregon Coast (true story!). Personal props have special significance but don’t forget that rental companies are also a great resource to utilize for styled shoots. Not only will they have entire collections curated, they often offer delivery and pick up options-something not to look over when you’re looking at lugging a velveteen couch up the dusty path on a hot Seattle day. Here are a few photos for inspiration featuring some of our vintage and antique décor from one of our sweet couples whose wedding ceremony & reception will continue the vintage vibe created during their engagement photo session with coordination and styling by Holly Patton of Perfectly Posh Events and Kimberly Kay Photography.
