Getting engaged is one of the most exciting moments in a couple’s journey together; there is no better way to capture this exciting time in your life than taking engagement photos. Isaiah Tanenbaum Photography in Long Island City has the training and experience to make your pictures perfect. A graduate of Amherst College, Tanenbaum’s work — from headshots to theatrical photography to party photography — has been featured in The New York Times, Backstage, The Village Voice, and TimeOut New York.
When it comes to taking engagement photos, here are four tips for how to get the best shots:
- Choose A Theme: One of the best ways to show off your personality is to choose a theme. From re-enacting moving scenes to representing your favorite sports team, themes add a twist to the traditional engagement photo shoot. No matter what theme you choose, a wedding photographer can make your dream a reality.
- Go Outside: When it comes to picking a location, don’t stay in the studio. Choose a spot that means something to you and your partner, whether it’s a nearby botanical garden where you go on dates or the downtown landmark in the city where you live.
- Make Your Outfit Pop: Whether you wear a bright pair of heels or a statement necklace, let your personality come through with your accessories, but don’t overdo it. If you aren’t comfortable, your engagement photos won’t turn out well. Dress for your surroundings and be practical. And don’t forget to coordinate with your partner!
- Get Close-ups: You’ll want to show off your outfit, but make sure your wedding photographer also gets close-up pictures. Don’t be afraid to show that you’re in love. Close-ups are also necessary if you plan on submitting a photo to a newspaper with your announcement.
No matter what type of couple you are, Isaiah Tanenbaum Photography will take engagement photos ring true with you. They also offer proposal and wedding packages. For more information about their services, visit the website or call the wedding photographer at (917) 692-5737.
