Be you.  If you haven't worn heels since your high school prom, probably best to stick with flats.  The most comfortable you are the happier you'll look in your photos. 

Plan on a one hour session.  If you want specific lighting conditions discuss that with your photographer to choose the best time of day. 

Opt for at least one classic look that will stand the test of time.  Trendy looks can be fun, but you want to ensure these photos can be posted (and envied) for generations to come. 

Consider what locations represent you as a couple.  Did you get engaged seaside?  Have a favorite picnic spot?  Incorporate it into your engagement photos for a truly personal touch. 

Trust the process.  It's your photographer's job to know what angles, and poses, will look most natural for you and your fiancé.  Many times you'll be in positions you haven't been in before in order to get the most beautiful photos. Nervous about ho you look?  Ask to see some images as you go and feel free to point out anything you aren't happy with. 

Tips and Tricks to Looking (and Feeling)Your Best In Your Engagement Photos

Don't worry about your partner's enthusiasm level.  You're engaged which means that while your partner might not be giddy with laughter like you, they do love you.  Trust that your photographer will be able to elicit that in your photos. 

Choose neutral and complimentary clothing colors.

Laugh. Hug. Play. Snuggle. Touch. Kiss 

Know that it's normal to feel nervous.  Just take a deep breath and remember what got you here; the love you have for each other. The more you remember that during the day the better your photos will turn out.

Consider including all members of your family - especially the furry ones - into at least a portion of your engagement pictures.

Have fun!
