Choose your props wisely.
We get it. You like cheese. Or you’re from Wisconsin. Awesome!
But when you’re in the midst of getting photographed and feel awkward standing around waiting, please don’t grab the nearest object and hold it over your head. This is what regret is made of.
Your fiance is not a prop.
Guys. Twilight is awesome. But posing for a photo that makes it look like you’re sucking the life out of your fiance isn’t exactly the message you want to send out. Same goes for photos of the groom pretending like buying you an engagement ring ruined his life, or other terrible gender stereotypes.
Be nice to your fiance
Chances are he doesn’t want to stand around all day getting his photo taken. So make sure you take him out for a nice lunch or something if he’s not into this photo thing. Otherwise, he might get annoyed and post terrible photos on his blog, mocking the entire engagement photo process.
If you’re going to go with a theme, go hard.
There are a lot of photos of movie themes out there. If you’re going to spend the money and effort on getting your photo taken and maybe hair/makeup and costumes. Why NOT be a little more obvious about it?
Because I’d be hard pressed to find someone who does not enjoy this Sith Star Wars shoot. The bride has covered herself in red and black face paint. Who among us cannot admire that dedication?
