With so many themes and styles, it can be tough to choose what cute engagement photos to like. Cute engagement photo ideas are a great way to bring out personalities.

We may not know when engagement photos became common, but, what we do know is if couples want to share that big announcement, then these 22 cute engagement photo ideas are the way to go!

Tips to Make the Best Engagement Photos

We’ve included some valuable tips on how we take the best engagement photos for you. These tips will help you choose the best themes and styles to go with ideal poses, locations, timing, and colors for a stunning photoshoot.

Poses

Acting natural in front of the camera is hard to achieve unless you’re used to it. In that case, you can use simple poses to ease the discomfort. Common poses that are ideal for formal engagement photos include:

  • Side by side, head and shoulders, half-body and full-body shots

  • Hugging poses such as back hugs, arms around, couples’ embrace facing each other, and even a piggyback pose

  • Profile poses such as an almost-kiss or couples staring into each other’s eyes

  • Reenacting scenes from your favorite movies or tv shows

  • Simply walking by your favorite spots or dream locations

Location

If it’s about making your engagement photos looking dazzling, location is everything. Some of the best places for engagement photoshoots include places that are memorable to you and your partner, dream vacation spots, or any place that has a nice view.

Timing

As to when you would like us to snap, there are many options. We can do it any time of the day, but there are a few times of the day that are perfect for engagement photography ideas. Nighttime pictures, sunset shoots, or rainy-day pics are just a few examples!

Colors

When it comes to coordinating the right colors, black and white are timeless. They’ll always produce stunning shots we’re sure will become your favorites. But if black and white isn’t what you’re going for, we can always go with more dramatic hues from the wide assortment of colors.

22 Inspirations for Your Own Cute Engagement Shoot

Now that you know about the importance of best timing, ideal location, colors, and poses for good engagement photos, below are some fun and creative ideas that you can think about.

  1. A Candid Shot

With our years of experience in photography, we can attest that candid shots are always the best ones. In that case, sometimes all you need to do for candid engagement photos is to let out the warm and friendly you.
