5 Unique Engagement Shoot Ideas You Just Got to Try

Engagement shoots, pre-nup shoots, or pre-wedding shoots—whatever you wish to call it—is essential to any engaged couple. It’s a way to let family and friends (and also everyone on Facebook) know that you're tying the knot. It's also a way to make more memories as boyfriend and girlfriend. But most of all, engagement shoots show everyone the couple’s personality.

Take for example, our couple Christian and Christine. They have a knack for all sorts of board games and are very jolly, very wacky people. So we made sure to incorporate those in the shoot.

Other than the define-the-couple side of the shoot, its success boils down to the theme.

Nowadays, couples add different gimmicks to their engagement shoot. Some go for full-styled shoots. Others go for simpler themes like the nature or garden theme.

Typical nature-themed photo shoots make great photos, but this concept is too common. Not that we're complaining though. Look at how good a simple walk in the park can bring to the shoot.

But if you want your own photo shoot to be out of the ordinary, here are 5 unique engagement shoot ideas you just got to try:

1. Holi Powder

Holi powder is originally used in India’s Holi Festival. Also called “the Festival of Colors,” this event commemorates the victory of good over evil. It's also done to celebrate love and forgiveness.

In other parts of the world, it is commonly used in fun runs, raves, and the like.

This theme is perfect for the adventurous, sporty, and outdoor-loving couple. Holi powder is associated with fun, energy, and vibrancy of life after all.

Even if you’re not exactly an “energetic couple”, having a holi powder-themed shoot is still a good idea. Everything about the theme will give a lively feel to your shoot. Full smiles and a fun time guaranteed.

Plus, just look at the pretty colors!

2. Fairy Lights

If you don’t have the budget to go to a breathtaking location for your shoot, don’t you worry! Fairy lights will make shoots in even the most mundane places a little bit extraordinary.

With their soft glow, these lights are perfect if you're aiming for that laid-back yet romantic kind of feel.

3. Everything Monochromatic

This might be a bit in contrast with the first engagement shoot idea, but hear us out. There is definitely beauty in black and white or straight-up everything monochromatic.
