Besides location, the other most common question I am asked is what props should we bring. Props are a great way to add a little something extra to your photoshoot. The location and clothing are very important as well. In this post I will give some ideas on props to bring to an engagement photo shoot.
A little chalkboard-These are super cute and versatile. Make sure to bring some chalk and you can write some cute little phrases on this. You can even write your names, the date of the wedding, or whatever else you would like. They sell these at most craft stores.
Balloons-You can get creative with the balloons too. You can get the really big ones, you can get mylar ones that are shaped like hearts or anything for that matter. You can get creative with the colors too.
Ice Cream Cones-If you are doing your shoot somewhere where they have them for sale it is a quick easy thing to incorporate. You can each have your own or share one.
If you’re a coffee lover like me you can also have coffee mugs, paper cups from your favorite shop, or even do part of your shoot in a coffee shop.
A cute calendar page with your wedding date circled on it.
A cute sign about love. They sell all kinds of plaques, signs, etc at craft stores and even on etsy.
A vintage camera. (I have one I can bring if you want, just let me know)
Wooden Letters-The first letter of each of your names or the first letter of the groom’s last name.
Pets-If you guys have any pets that can leave the house they are great to incorporate.
Umbrellas or Parisols
Swirly Lollipops or any cool looking candy
You can also spruce up your outfits by wearing hats, scarfs, awesome shoes, or hair accessories.
Most importantly though, make the shoot about you!
