The past day or two I have been thinking about engagement photography.  Now engagement photography is not really a big thing in New Zealand as of yet.  Although that seems to be slowly changing.  While it is common and accepted here in little old New Zealand to hire a professional photographer to shoot your wedding it is far from common to hire a professional photographer to take some engagement photos of you and your fella before the wedding.

So what exactly is engagement photography all about?  And what’s the point?

Check out this link from weddingbee.com.  It does a pretty good explanation of engagement photography and why it might be good for you.

And here’s a link to a video on “Engagement photo trends” from TheKnot.com.

It’s a little bit “OTT” but it shows some great photos and includes some great engagement photography ideas (like having an engagement shoot at the Laundromat where a couple met for the first time).

And last but not least here’s a link to a variety of engagement photos from Google – some great pix on here!

Right, that’s it from me for now – I have to fly.  I will post more on this subject as soon as I have some free time.

I am a wedding photographer based in beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand. I have been full-time with the photography thing since 2006 and still can’t believe I get to do what I love for a job! Here are a few words that I think sum me up: I AM…tall and bald, happy, imaginative, constantly hungry, active and friendly. I LOVE…my girl, coffee, photography, fooooooood, my family and friends, riding bikes, being outside, the simple things in life, people… I love my life! I believe that wedding photography can and should be SIMPLE, NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL.
