10 Unique, Simple Props to Make Engagement Shoots “WOW” Worthy

By, May 31, 2011

An engagement shoot is all about creativity! It doesn’t have to be posed and formal, although we would suggest a few portraits as well. It makes Mom and Dad happy too ;) This is an opportunity to showcase your personalities, while showing your love for each other. Whether you’re going for a romantic setting in nature, a goofy shoot with lots of color, or working with a contemporary backdrop, the right prop can add a special touch that makes your engagement photos memorable. Props can be easy to come by – you can find and use simple items that you see everyday. We seek inspiration in almost anything, from fruit at a farmers market, to a tea set in an antique shop, to a pile of leaves in nature. The possibilities are endless!

1. BUBBLE GUM

Aaron of True Photography: “Anna and Ryan are a fun couple, so we wanted to make sure we captured their goofiness. Whether it was Anna popping bubbles in Ryan’s face, or the two of them cruising down the street on a tiny child’s bicycle and rollerblades, we were able to encompass their personalities in a creative and colorful way.”

2. A CIGARSan Diego Wedding Photographer: True Photography during a night shot on a bridge smoking a cigar for a cool effect

Aaron of True Photography : “To create the mood lighting was everything. We back-lit the image to create a nice rim. We didn’t want to over-pose the shot, as there was already plenty of mood with the environment. If we over-posed the shot, it would have quickly gone from cool to cheesy. Linda and Steven definitely pulled off the look :) “
