Engagement Photo Inspiration from the Past

It is the month of L-O-V-E and originally I was going to post several vintage photos of couples being all lovey dovey. And I thought, hey, why not mix in some modern day engagement photos?

Ok, don’t hate me wedding photographers, but most engagement photos nowadays are just so… meh? They look staged, too bright, too forced. So, now this post has become an inspiration source for engagement photos that I hope become the new norm!


And goodness, don’t get me started on the outfits most couples wear for their engagements! LADIES! PLEASE put on a dress! I beseech you to wear a skirt with a blouse! I’ve seen too many engagement sessions where gals wear jeans, a button up shirt, and boots.

I get it, you want to be comfy. I’m sure jeans and boots are your daily mojo. But these are your engagement photos! Don’t you want to be a vision of feminine loveliness?!

I know. Not everyone is into that…although if you’re reading my blog, YOU probably are!

I just think if you’re going to make the effort to schlep your way to a hillside dotted in the most amazing wildflowers nature has to offer and a sunset that makes blind children cry… don’t you think you should wear something other than leggings and a sweater?

We think so! And hope you do too!
