ENGAGEMENT LOCATION IDEAS

LOCATION & TIMING

Engagement Location Ideas.

Location is key. But finding that perfect spot is really dependent on your personalities. Do you love hiking & the outdoors? Then maybe a woodsy type area would be great. Or you both share a love for old architecture? Maybe the beach? Do you have funny & sentimental memories of the simple things? Maybe a fun and unique session at the laundry mat will work. Or just strolling through the pier or market for a relaxed vibe. Remember to be engaging, have an activity or story, like a road-trip to the coast, a picnic in the orchards, or a date to the county fair. I have a lengthy list of previous locations I’ve shot at – so just list what you’re looking for and I’ll put something together for you!


THE SPIT

Located in Southport, Gold Coast (20 minutes north of Surfers Paradise)

Timing

You can schedule your engagement session one year before your wedding or just a few weeks before your wedding. Schedule an earlier date (4-6 months prior to wedding date) if you’re planning to use the photos for the save-the-dates/invitations or for the photo guest-book. The best light to shoot is 1-3 hours before sunset. Also keep in mind the seasons. Spring vs. Autumn; very different moods, color palette, and styling options!
