Elevate Your Engagement Sessions: A Guide to Achieving an Editorial Feel

Engagement sessions are more than just pre-wedding photo shoots; they are an opportunity to capture the unique essence of your love story. If you’re looking to add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your engagement sessions, creating an editorial feel is the key. In this guide, we’ll explore valuable tips and techniques to help you approach engagement sessions with an editorial mindset, ensuring stunning and timeless results.

Wardrobe Choices: I encourage you to choose outfits that align with the editorial theme. Timeless and classic attire often works best, steering clear of overly trendy elements. Consider a wardrobe stylist to ensure you look polished and cohesive in front of the camera. Click here for some outfit inspiration.

Posing with Purpose: Editorial photography often involves intentional and well-thought-out posing. I will gently guide you into poses that convey a sense of connection and intimacy. I then experiment with dynamic angles, close-ups, and candid in-between moments to capture the raw emotions between the two of you.

Lighting Techniques: Time of day and lighting is vital to achieve that editorial polish. Soft, natural light is often favored for its flattering and romantic qualities. Locations can look completely different on an overcast gloomy day versus a bright and sunny one. It’s good to keep this in mind when choosing a location(s).

Detail-oriented Shots: Editorial photography thrives on attention to detail. I aim to capture close-up shots of the engagement ring, hands intertwined, or other significant details that tell the couple’s story. These shots not only add depth to the narrative but also contribute to the overall editorial aesthetic.

Achieving an editorial feel in engagement sessions involves a thoughtful combination of location, wardrobe choices, posing techniques, lighting, and attention to detail. By incorporating these elements, we can elevate your session, creating timeless images that capture the essence of your love story with sophistication and elegance. See galleries here.
