Engagement Photo Idea: Props

Categories Photography + Real Weddings

Meet Kayla and Jacob. Today, we’re kicking off our series of 3 engagement sessions featuring props! What’s a prop? Anything that lends support. So, as far as engagement photography goes, props can be anything from physical items that you hold in your hand or wear on your body, to even a building, tree, or babbling brook … anything really.

5 REASONS WHY USING PROPS IN YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS IS A GREAT IDEA:

1. Props help to show off your personality, flair, hobby and unique wedding style.
2. Props add visually interesting elements to your photos.
3. Props bring a level of drama and storytelling to your e-session.
4. Props can be used to introduce your wedding theme on a multi-photo Save the Date postcard or magnet.
5. Using props encourages spontaneity–avoiding awkward or unauthentic posing. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

Among the first words Kayla spoke to her photographer were “I’ve got a 23 piece vintage camera collection I plan on using for decor at the wedding.” So what did Kayla and Becca from B. Jones Photography do? They collaborated on concept, outfits, and props for this sweet session that hints at their upcoming wedding. Enjoy!

Wine Valley Golf Course Wedding

Categories Photography + Real Weddings

We’re absolutely in love with Crystal and Manuel’s simply elegant golf course wedding from Wilton Photography today. Where to begin … Crystal and Manuel got ready and had their first look pictures at the historic and stately The Marcus Whitman Hotel. Their outdoor wedding took place at the Wine Valley Golf Course and for their ceremony backdrop–mountains and rolling wheat fields. A wedding with a view … and the expansive sky only added to the sweet romance of the day. Enjoy!

Pre-wedding/First look: The Marcus Whitman Hotel, Walla Walla, WA
