One fun way to let the world know about you and your fiance’s engagement announcement is with a beautiful holiday photo shoot. The magic starts with hiring a professional who specializes in providing customized engagement photography. Here are some tips for creating a visual that will provide a lasting and loving keepsake for family and friends.
3 Exciting Holiday Engagement Photo Shoot Ideas
1. Choose a Colorful and Festive Backdrop
With vibrant colors, lights and decorations, Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa are the perfect times of the year to have a holiday engagement photo shoot. Scout New York City for picturesque locations that will provide a festive backdrop for engagement photography. For instance, Rockefeller Center offers a rainbow of seasonal glitz. Look for holiday settings in parks, wintery storefronts, and even brownstone stoops adorned with festive holiday lights.
2. Select Festive Fashion
There’s nothing like an elegant winter backdrop to cozy in front of for a picture. Now finding the a warm but fashionable outfit to wear for the picture isn’t always easy! From winter whites to rich reds and greens, your wardrobe choices are endless during the holiday season. A professional wedding photographer, with extensive engagement photography experience, can offer wardrobe suggestions that will compliment the look you are going for. You and your partner can go casual with fleecy parkas and boots, or sophisticated with faux furs, silver or gold evening wear. If you’re stumped for more ideas, check out fashion magazines with holiday editorial spreads for inspiration.
3. Use Personalities as a Guide
Are you and your new fiancé the chic couple who always steal the spotlight? Do friends and family consider you both to be the playful and adventure seeking ones? Incorporate your unique personalities into your winter engagement shoot. Use this announcement of your upcoming wedding as a fun and celebratory way to share how much the two of you love each other.
