Get Fun, Personal Photos with a Date Activity + Engagement Shoot


If “I’m ready for my close-up” is something you’ve NEVER said, then a date activity meets engagement photo session might be for you! This new photography trend is about capturing candid, personal photos. Forget having to worry about posing and “smizing”–all you’ll need to do is have a great time with your guy doing something both of you love. Just be sure you hire a photographer who specializes in a photojournalism style and is comfortable with a less formal engagement session. Then plan a special date. Whether its reading books in a coffee shop or roasting S’mores in your fireplace, pick something that’s sweet and meaningful for the two of you. Do a bit of extra styling–if you’re doing it at home, put a vase of flowers on the table or if you’re going to be eating milk and cookies, use cute, patterned china. And then enjoy! Sound like perfection? We definitely think so!
