Things to remember when trying to come up with a ‘theme’ for your engagement session:
Clothing – If you are super into sports, you can dress up in your favorite team’s jerseys or other team swag. If you’re having a vintage wedding, you can go along with that theme with your attire. If you like to dress up and go dancing, you can dress the part in your photos. Use your clothing to express your interests and hobbies as a couple.
Props – Bringing props is going to be the easiest way to incorporate your hobbies into your session. It could be a guitar, a Scrabble game, your bikes, some paint for a colorful, messy session, etc. Bring your pets, take your boat for a spin around the lake, pack a picnic…the possibilities are endless.
Location – Another way that you can incorporate your interests is to think about locations that have significance to you. Where did you meet? Where did he propose? Where is your wedding going to take place? We can go to the lake, a sports stadium, the theater, your favorite bar or park, a hotel, the fair, etc. Think about places you love to hang out together. We’re open to ideas here, so just let us know what you’re thinking!
Composites - We are always pushing the envelope to create unique imagery for our clients. Think about maybe sitting on a bench with a baseball field behind or the two of you in a locker room with a bench and lockers to put stuff into. These are just a few of the art pieces we can create for you to stand out from crowd and also have a large wall portrait for you and your friends to talk about over a beer or a glass of wine.
