You might have already noticed that I love capturing and sharing amazing, adventurous engagement photos of couples who are not just passionate about each other but about the great outdoors as well!
Whether it’s the snow-capped peaks of Banff National Park or the blueness of Lake Louise that speaks to you, adventurous engagement photos can capture your love in all its glory against some of the most stunning backdrops in the world!
If you’re drawn to the wild, bound by wanderlust, and dream of taking your engagement photos against Alberta’s awe-inspiring landscapes, you’re in the right place! And here are some tips to help you plan for unforgettable, adventurous engagement photos!
Let’s embrace your adventurous, outdoorsy spirit for your engagement photos! Your engagement photos help tell your love story and should scream YOU as you look at them!
So let’s go hiking, camping, canoeing, or whatever you and your partner would love to do for your engagement shoot. I’ll happily tag along and capture you as you have fun going on adventures together!
One of the greatest benefits of outdoor engagement photos is the beauty of natural lighting. The golden hour (the hour before sunrise or before sunset) provides a soft, warm light that is ideal for romantic and dreamy photos.
Similarly, overcast days can provide a diffused light that’s equally beautiful, creating a unique, moody atmosphere for your images.
The more you interact with your environment, the more authentic and natural your photos will look! So you could sit by the campfire, walk hand-in-hand along a woodland path, paddle out into the middle of a lake, or share a romantic picnic under a towering pine tree, just to name a few options!
As an experienced elopement and engagement photographer, I know the ins and outs of Alberta’s natural landscapes and how to capture you and their magic!
Trust your photographer to suggest the best spots for your shoot, to know when the lighting is just right, and to help you capture all the good moments!
Plan your shoot, but also be willing to go along with what Mother Nature throws at you. Weather can be unpredictable, but that’s totally okay!
A sudden rain shower or snowfall can create a romantic, moody backdrop, and I’m prepared to capture your engagement photos in any weather, as long as you’re up for it!
Most importantly, remember to have fun and enjoy the moment! Laugh, play, tease each other, and enjoy the beauty of the outdoor wilderness together! These genuine emotions will really shine through in your engagement photos and allow you to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the session.
I hope that these tips for amazing, adventurous engagement photos are going to help you prepare for your session.
