21 fun engagement photo ideas to inspire your own pics

Posted by

There's more to fun engagement photo ideas than gazing into each others' eyes in a park. You can do, well, anything! We even saw some back in the day that poked a little fun at a few of the more traditional poses. We put out the call for some alternative ideas for engagement shoot ideas and our vendors came through with some winners. We're talking movie and TV references, arcade gaming, dinosaur cameos, lightsabers, wands, and dance parties anywhere.

Are YOU doing anything a little different in your own engagement shoot? Let us know about it in the comments!

  1. If the guy on the right, in the ‘Betty Clicker Photography’ photo was standing in front of the mountain/rock in the previous ‘Twisted Aisle Weddings’ photo he would disappear in the background! Perfect camo 🙂

  2. My fiancé and I are both musicians. We actually met in college studying audio production. We’re going t be working with a photographer to capture some shots of us at my partner’s place of work: a recording studio.
