Why take engagement photos? First, it’s a great way to get more comfortable in front of the camera with your wedding photographer. You’ll get out all of the jitters, learn about how your photographer operates, and, on the flip side, your photographer will get a better idea of your comfort level and your best angles—resulting in better pictures on your wedding day. But the most popular reason to take engagement photos—save-the-dates. That’s why I love when couples show off their personalities with creatively-themed shoots. What better way to introduce your guests to the two of you as a couple?

Here are some of my favorite, unique engagement photos!
