One of the most common parts of a wedding photography package for a couple to book is an engagement session. This is an opportunity for you to spend time with your couple and get to know them. It allows you to make them as comfortable as possible in front of the camera, so they are not nervous on the wedding day. Plus, the images you share with your couple after the engagement session help solidify your brand message and expectations they had from seeing your past photos on your website and blog. If you’re looking for engagement session ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
Here at ShootDotEdit, not only do we provide wedding photography editing, we also love to share inspirational photography from other pros in the industry. If you haven’t put an engagement session in your wedding photography business packages, consider adding it, at least to the top package. Below, we share 15 engagement photos to inspire you as you prepare for shooting engagement photography. Plus, a few of the wedding pros share their inspiration behind their images!

SimplyTwo Photography positioned the couple in this engagement shot where the light is just gorgeous shining into the tunnel!
“This scene was all sorts of excitement. There’s something utterly magical about a textured, creepy tunnel at sunset that compelled us to explore further. With the light flooding in, shadows were cast at just the perfect angle, leading viewers to my super-in-love couple. Fun fact: This shot almost didn’t happen because parking was extra difficult that day and we were tempted to move on to the next location.” – SimplyTwo Photography
