Creative Props for Your Engagement Session

With a fun backdrop and interactive props, your engagement photography session is the perfect opportunity to capture the excitement for your upcoming wedding. From signage to sandcastles and even an appearance by man's best friend, there is something for everyone. Take a peek inside for a bit of fun and festive engagement prop inspiration.

Don't be afraid to show off your personality in your engagement photos! Include pieces that reflects your favorite past-time. We always recommend thinking about your day-to-day hobbies and incorporating some elements as props. We love how these musicians brought their passion into their day! Picture frames, beautiful balloons, or even a suitcase for explorers all make great options to help you get your session started. 

Words and letters are a great way to add a little extra oomph to your photos, especially if you’re hoping to turn one of the photos into a “save the date” or beautiful print for your mantlepiece. If you’re feeling crafty, consider designing your own signage! Check out these techniques for DIY signs that will help you get those creative juices flowing. We love wooden initials, chalkboard signs and banners!

One of our favorite trends has got to be a good cozy session at home with some tasty treats, or seeing a couple toast to their engagement! We can’t think of a better way to express your love other than with a bubbly glass of champagne or with a scrumptious loaf of homemade bread, can you? Cheers!

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Gather some fresh flowers, bring along an umbrella (we’ll make sure it won’t rain on your parade!), or snuggle under a blanket with your loved one. Feeling inspired by your surroundings? Have some fun and create your own backdrop!

This precious couple met as teachers at an elementary school and were lucky enough to have their engagement session where they first met. The creativity these two put into their session blew us away and is still one of our favorites to date. Remember exchanging notes with your crush in elementary school? We love how this couple brought that tradition back for their schoolhouse engagement.

Are you and your future spouse sports fanatics, bookworms or competitive gamers? Feel free to bring what you love to your session - be it your favorite Harry Potter book, a baseball you caught on your first date or scrabble pieces to spell out something sweet! These interactive props will serve as a way to help you and your fiance feel more at ease in front of the camera.

Your puppy is all over Instagram, Snapchat and the refrigerator, so why not include him or her in your engagement photos, too? While they may not be props per se, bringing along your furry friend(s) is always a favorite option for an engagement session!
