Couples have their engagement portrait shoot first, several weeks before their wedding start. On this e-session, the couple comes dressed up depending on the concept or theme they want to be captured. Forget about artificial backdrops and explore unique environments and romantic locations and have it as your backdrop.

Couples are ready to have their intimate moments captured on-location by their photographer. Most couples tend to pick places like the beach or at the park, to name a few. If you are living within the countryside area, old motels, wide open fields, and dilapidated barns can give you unique photographs. If you live in a city, a vintage signage, graffiti, and brick walls can make excellent background.

Images captured from the engagement photo session are usually presented by the couple to their guest at the reception through an audio visual presentation or photo slideshow projected on a big monitor. In here, the photographer will show their love story through his images using Animoto to create that stunning slideshows in minutes.

Here’s some of a bit edgy, unique, and traditional ideas for your engagement portrait shoot on-location. Take it as an inspiration to come up with a decision for a memorable location that will be captured in photograph and cherish for a lifetime.
