5 Pointers for Making Your Valentine's Day Engagement Session Unique

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, so it makes sense that you’d consider using the holiday as a theme for your engagement photoshoot. But how can you avoid paper hearts and bows and arrows and make your Valentine’s Day engagement session really stand out? Read on for some pointers.

Valentine's Day Engagment Photoshoot Red Background

1. Add splashes of red

Most Valentine’s Day engagement shoots are covered in shades of pink and red. Instead of making each image totally filled with these colors, only add touches of Valentine’s Day hues to your shots. For example, wear all black and hold a red rose during one pose. That red rose, while small, will speak volumes. Another way to add a splash of red that won’t overpower the focus of the photoshoot—the engaged couple—is to use a crimson-colored background. 

2. Avoid the cheese factor

It’s easy to go over the top with themed engagement photoshoots and create an overtly cheesy session. To avoid this, stay away from gimmicks such as having one of you dress up as cupid, throwing paper hearts on each other, dressing entirely in red, and the like. Make your Valentine’s Day engagement shoot subtle—not so cheesy you need a bottle of red to go along with it.

3. Stay away from red completely

Valentine’s Day sessions are some of the most romantic engagement photoshoots that can be executed—but that doesn’t mean you need to throw cupids, hearts, and the color red into any of your shots. Instead, you could stay away from the theme entirely and focus only on your love for each other.

4. Use light to your advantage

Remember point number one? If your engagement session’s photographer knows what they’re doing, they can play with red light to create an image such as the one shown at the top of this blog post. Talk about a unique Valentine's Day shot!

5. Celebrate what makes you a unique couple

No two couples are the same—each pair has its own quirks and funky characteristics. Celebrate these unique aspects of your relationship in your ultra-romantic engagement photoshoot. Have a shared passion for breweries? Bring a couple of pints of craft beer into some of your shots. Love the outdoors and spend most of your dates in nature? Make Mother Nature the backdrop of your Valentine’s Day engagement session.

Regardless of how you go about your engagement photoshoot, if you choose the ideal photographer, you’re sure to be thrilled with the results—so make sure to do your research!

From the initial meeting to communication, to the wedding, everything was wonderful. Deevo has a quirky personality and it made the whole experience better. My husband didn't really like taking pictures, but I think he enjoyed it because of Deevo.
