What type of location do you want?

Deciding on the type of engagement session location that suits you and your partner's personality, style, and interests can be exciting and stressful.

To start, consider the type of place. Do you prefer a natural setting like a park or garden, or an urban setting like a city street or a rooftop? Do you have a favorite spot in the city that holds special meaning to you and your partner?

Next, think about your shared interests and hobbies. Perhaps you both love hiking, biking, or exploring new neighborhoods. Or maybe you like to stay indoors. Doing an at-home or indoor studio photoshoot is also an option.

Location convenience: Pick the best of both worlds

Pick the location you want, first and foremost, but also keep in mind travel. Usually, a photographer will charge you extra for travel to those locations far away. Make sure to have a few locations in mind before you chat with your photographer so you can really pick the best location for both parties. Most photographers are very willing to travel wherever you want them to, however, keep in mind that it may cost you more. If your engagement session was included in a wedding photo & video package, make sure you know what travel is included in that package.

Pick your season

Consider the time of day and season when you want to take your photos. This can affect the lighting and overall ambiance of your shoot. Most couples take their pictures during the golden hour which is 1.5 hours before the sun sets. Also, keep in mind that winter shoots are very cold and can affect what you wear during the shoot.

Look at a variety

When finalizing your decision on your engagement location remember to look at various galleries and photos from that one location. Looking at just one gallery or one photo won’t really tell you how your photos are going to look. Looking at a variety will help you know if that location is good for you. Pinterest is also a great place to brainstorm.
