tips + tricks :: fun engagement props

Engagement

When planning my engagement sessions with my clients, I always encourage them to make the session as personalized as possible. I want the final product to be the couple. While locations and wardrobe are great ways to bring a couple’s personality into the shoot, little props can completely transform a simple location like the beach or an open field and really show of what the couple is all about.

Here are some ideas of fun props to use in your session:

Other fun prop ideas include:

– Picnic basket with pinic goodies

– Hats (baseball, fedora, floppy hats, etc)

– Chalkboards + Chalk

– Blankets

– Umbrellas

– Balloons

– Bubble Gum

– Bottle of Champagne

– Bikes, old cars, motorcycles

– Sports gear (baseball gloves, baseball bats, basketballs, etc.)

You can DIY your props, find them at a craft store or order them online. All of the props below were found on Etsy. I would love to do a shoot with any of these. :)
