Our Engagement Shoot

Jenna WillardComment

No two engagement shoots are alike. Jason and I wanted to create a setting that we've never been photographed in before; something that captured the essence of our relationship. 

If any of you don't know our proposal story, Jason popped the question with the most romantic night picnic I've ever seen. He thought of every little detail from the handpicked chocolates to the special music playlist he made. What really made this so intimate was that the spot he chose was in St. Petersburg, the city where we met, and it was just us two. It was absolutely perfect; something you would have seen in a movie!

We wanted to relive that romantic night, so we decided to have a romantic picnic engagement shoot with the same atmosphere. Take a look!

Some tips for planning your engagement shoot: 

  • Talk about it! Communicate with your photographer beforehand and explain to him or her what you want to get out of your pictures. Let them know if you have a particular vision or if you like certain styles of work.
  • Plan it out! Make sure your color combos work well together and think about your location before picking out your outfit. 
  • Get Pampered! Make sure your hair is styled, your makeup is done professionally, and your nails are perfect; you're going to want multiple pictures of your ring! Also, make sure your fiancé gets a nice haircut and shaves if necessary :) 
  • Make it yours! Add a touch of your personality as a couple. Incorporate something you like. Since I love to bake, I made a cake with our date on it. 

Our amazing photographer, Erika Delgado, did such an amazing job capturing what we had envisioned for our engagement shoot! We can't wait to see what she has in store for us for our Wedding!! To see more of her work visit her website!
