Tips on taking engagement photos


Photographer offers advice for engagement photos
A San Francisco photographer, Michael Soo, recently shared some tips for the bride- and groom-to-be as they pose for the engagement photos. This way, they are sure to be unique and creative but also romantic.

Picking a theme is the first step for a pair to decide on, and also allow the photographer to get to know them as a couple. For example, is the couple fun and loving or more quietly romantic? The next item is to find the perfect location.

"We then help narrow down the locations for the engagement photo session, the theme and then the ambiance and experience that brings out the glow of their love," said Soo.

Building a trusting relationship between the photographer and couple is imperative to these sessions. In addition, one of the most important things a couple needs to do while taking these photos is to have fun while posing, as it should be care-free and easy.

Plus, this is a great way to practice for the abundance of pictures that will be taken on the couple's big day and they won't have to find a wedding photographer.
