Engagement photos and why I think you should have them

To me, the memories made while engaged are just as sweet as the memories made in the first year of marriage. So yes, I highly encourage you to have engagement photos, they are more important than you think!

Engagement photos and why I think you should have them

Here are my thoughts and tips, and while every photographer has a different approach, I’d like to believe this will help. Even if you haven’t booked me as your wedding photographer.

Your engagement session usually lasts one to two hours. I schedule a date and time with you based on the best light. The last two hours before the sun sets is the best for engagement photos, in my opinion.

The last thing that I want you doing before your engagement photos is worrying and stressing. Allow plenty of time for traffic. In Stockholm, traffic is terrible, and I don’t know how many times my couples have stressed because of traffic. I say, don’t you worry about that. I’ll wait for you guys! I much rather you two talk about your day and dream together than worry about arriving late.

Stunning landscapes and gorgeous styling, because the places you dream up together will be an essential part of your story!

I always encourage my couples to choose a location with beautiful light and atmosphere that is a good fit for them. Stunning landscapes and gorgeous styling, because the places you dream up together will be an essential part of your story!

That might mean that your session happens at your home, a place you love to visit together, or maybe you will finally go to that dream destination together! If you need help brainstorming and picking a location that will be perfect for your session, let me know. Some of my clients’ favorite places have been at a private island, a picturesque little harbor, or the nearby forest where someone is building their dream house.

Engagement photo locations in Stockholm

In Stockholm, there are many fantastic locations for engagement photos. But I have also photographed sessions in the south of Sweden, in the archipelago, in Norway, and often I travel to Italy for engagement and honeymoon photos. You pick the location, and we’ll create some magic together. I do, however, have a little list of secret spots in the Stockholm area where I often take my couples for photos. If they don’t want to pick a location on their own. I’m here to assist before, during, and after your engagement photos, so I will help you out with that.

Professional hair and makeup before your engagement session

Now is the time to do professional hair and makeup. It’s incredible to see how much professional hair and makeup add to the engagement photos. It will make a huge difference, I promise. If you need outfit suggestions, I’m more than happy to assist with that too.

The engagement session is also the time for us to get to know each other. A possibility for you to get used to being in front of my camera. I can’t tell you enough how valuable that will be when the wedding day comes around. You will be more relaxed and secure with me as your photographer resulting in priceless photos of the beginning of your journey as a married couple.

It’s about love, emotions, and relationships. The unique spark that only you have. It’s your love story, and I’ll be honored to photograph it for you.
