Engagement shoots are meaningful because this is a chance for you to give your loved ones a creative glimpse into who you are as a couple. One way to truly let your personalities shine is by choosing a theme that resonates deeply with both of you! We’ve written many memorable and outstanding engagement features, and we wish we could talk about them all! But, for now, here are 10 of the themes you might be able to get inspiration from. Whether it’s outdoors, indoors, or even underwater, get ready to take some notes from these incredible themes. Go on and start scrolling!
Do you love going on long drives and road trips together? You might want to get some inspiration from Nicko and Chamen’s road trip-themed engagement shoot. With a 90’s Ford truck, and Kodak cameras, this couple was all set for an adventure. Think of what an adventurous, road trip engagement session would look like for you, too!
You don’t always need different sets of outfits to make your engagement shoot look interesting, you can also wear pajamas all day just like Daniel and Vanessa! Engagement shoots are fun because you can be yourselves, and express your silly side without inhibitions. Think of the everyday moments that mean something to you both. Just like this couple it could be going to a convenience store, riding a pedicab, and walking hand-in-hand wearing pajamas.
Here’s another fun idea! What would married life look like for you as a newlywed couple? Would it be something like Mylo and Joyce’s? Moments where you eat breakfast together, cook for one another, or spending quiet moments lounging in the living room? Telling your love story through your engagement shoot will surely be beautiful.
Rough roads, a cliffside overlooking the beach and a nipa hut make this engagement shoot theme stand out. Another interesting detail the couple, Arjay and Nikki, incorporated is the batik patterned outfits they wore. It’s a beautiful detail that certainly gives their photos so much character. If you’re outdoor lovers yourselves, consider going for an out of town shoot where it’s just you and the serenity of nature.
Express your artistry with an engagement shoot theme that shows off your creative side. Mark and Ingrid chose to play with mud and clay to make pottery creations while they enjoy tender, loving moments with one another. Doesn’t this remind you of that iconic movie with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore? *cue Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers* Apart from pottery, maybe you can also do a painting class or try knitting!
When you wish to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle (or working from home), why not make your engagement shoot an opportunity to go somewhere with fresh air and a breathtaking view of the mountains? Get inspiration from Ishi and Dyan! Take a look at how their engagement shoot shows meaningful moments through conversations over drinks, and just cozying up with each other.
If you’re free divers, like Matt and Andrea, why not take the plunge by having your engagement shoot done underwater? See how magical and surreal these photos are! How graceful this couple is while underwater truly is breathtaking.
If you’re both city dwellers, then why not roam familiar streets and enjoy a nice stroll together? Matt and Pia passed through walls of street art and uncrowded sidewalks of Bonifacio Global City. Sometimes, you need not look too far for a creative venue! Simply make use of your surroundings and see how beautiful it can be.
There are times when all you’ll need is a white wall and you can let your naturally playful personalities shine bright! Take Junnie and Vien as an example. They opted for simple, mostly white backgrounds and casual outfits for their engagement shoot and the results are beautiful. As the saying goes, “less is more.” Wouldn’t you agree?
Nothing wrong with going for a full-on wedding theme during your engagement shoot session! Why not add something borrowed in the mix, too? Regine wore her Mom’s 38-year old wedding gown and she certainly looked lovely! She even recreated her Mom’s wedding hairstyle. If you’d like to make a tribute to your parents, your engagement shoot can be a way to do so.
