Engagement session ideas I think you find just by looking at photos you like. From there you figure out what they did you like…was it their clothes, makeup and hair, location, particular posing, just the feeling of the image? After examining all of those factors and probably feeling overwhelmed you and your photographer (hopefully me :)) go out to try these engagement session ideas out. Generally I find it is amazing how many more of our own flaws you can overlook when there is a photo of you best friend, lover, and fiancée in it….at least thats the case for me. I am usually a terrible critic–not loving photos of myself because of my arms, my nose, I look fat etc….not to mention the other things I critique because I am a photographer (the background, the light, the connection, the editing etc). It is funny though how it becomes less about me all of a sudden and more about the connection and the relationship–the feeling of the image. For example maybe you want romantic engagement photos, or intimate engagement photos, or fun engagement photos…0r maybe you want to include your pets in your engagement photos? There are some great coastal Maine engagement session ideas and locations….do you want the rocks and ocean, a field, a lighthouse, the woods? I would use those words to describe some of the awesome engagement sessions I have had this year. I hope you experience the same thing with your engagement session and I hope you enjoy getting ideas from looking at these. These are my favorite engagement session images from 2014.
