Wedding Trend Alert: Themed Engagement Sessions
Whether you choose to be a saucy minx, Stepford wife or sassy girl-next-door, planning an engagement session around one of your favorite themes is a great way to capture and create memories that otherwise would’ve been lost to the masses… and not to mention, they provide an even better excuse to whip out that allstar treasure chest of Halloween costumes from year’s gone by :)
For cereal, 2010 is all the rage for themed engagement sessions, and I couldn’t be more excited! If you’re anything like me, you more than likely have a bajillion shots of “everyone look over here – watch the birdie!, watch the birdie! (SNAP!)” pictures filling every frame, album and drawer in your house. The people and outfits may change from shot to shot, but the poses are always the same… hence why costume driven engagement pics become even more entertaining!
In general, engagement sessions give a couple and their photographer a great arena to practice posing before the big day but are sometimes uncomfortable and not the easiest avenue to generate creativity. By allowing yourselves the ability to embrace different characters, themes or eras, you and your *boo-to-be will easily be driven to a whole new level of awesomeness!
After dressing to the nines, even the most nervous Nellies can come to life. Take my Mister, for instance. Don’t get me wrong, ladies; I love my husband very much, but if you think for one second the man enjoys showing off his handsome mug for a camera, you’d sadly be mistaken. In fact, I would compare his level of awkwardness to that of Chandler from Friends during his and Monica’s engagement session. If you’re not familiar with this reference, please know… it does not paint a pretty picture. Seeeee… (article cont’d below)
So, whether you choose to dress it up or dress it down, just remember that dressing up your pre-wedding pictorials is just the ticket for unique pics and fun times!
