Incredible Night Engagement Photo Shoot Inspiration

Trying to come up with creative engagement photo shoot ideas? Stay on trend and add in mysterious and romantic flair by scheduling a night engagement photo shoot! A night engagement photo shoot has the power to add magic to your pictures and create dramatic scenes using professional lighting techniques.

This exquisite inspiration is totally going to get you to keep your photographer after dark! You don't have to shoot for the stars to get super stunning night engagement photos like these. And no need to overthink it or get too fancy. All you need is a relaxing evening, a patient and talented photographer, a favorite scenic spot {in the city, countryside, or at the beach!}, and your guy.

A few tips as you plan your night engagement photo shoot

  • Leave it to the pros: Photos taken at night follow a different set of rules than daylight photos. Professional photographers will be in the know on  camera settings—shutter speeds, lighting, flashes/no flashes, etc. You get the picture.
  • You need at least a bit of lighting: So that you can be seen, of course. The moon is most obvious. Streetlights, surrounding buildings, or the sunset at dusk will all make a big impact in your photos.
  • It might take a bit to get great shots: Again, night photos are tricky. You'll likely have to experiment some with your photographer, so patience is a must. Once he/she gets the lighting and camera settings perfected, you'll be all set!
  • Add backlights! Check with your photographer on using backlights for a dramatic, romantic effect. You'll really pop out in your photos, and will be able to capture more details. Plus backlit photos are super trend in engagement and wedding photography.
