1. Choose a Location that Speaks to You
In Palm Beach County, we have a plethora of awesome places for engagement sessions. From the beach to gardens to awesome cityscapes, there’s bound to be a place that speaks to you as a couple.
We personally love the the elegance of a stroll down Worth Avenue and the art-filled walls by Subculture Coffee in downtown West Palm Beach.
2. Get Sentimental
Your wedding is a celebration of your relationship thus far, so what better time to get a little sappy! Pick a location that is meaningful or part of your love story.
It could be where you got engaged, where you first met, or an area that symbolizes the city that you both love.
These types of locations are great because they are familiar; therefore, you will be relaxed and can be yourself.
3. Have Fun
Is there something you and your fiancé love to do together? Cooking? Football? Running? Any of your shared hobbies would make for great engagement photos!
Bring your photographer along as you play vintage arcade games at the Silverball Museum, take a class at Shoppe561, or bike along Ocean Boulevard. It’ll be an adventure!
4. Lighting is Important
Palm Beach is on the east coast, so keep that in mind when picking your engagement location. Different times of day offer different lighting options.
If you want the sun glistening off the ocean behind you, a sunrise session is where it’s at. If you want soft sun beams peeking through the trees that create beautiful halos of light, you are looking at a golden hour session.
Talk to you photographer about the timing you’d like and they can help with the appropriate location.
5. Pick the Right Clothes
When picking the location, you need to consider what you want to wear for the session.
If you want to wear a romantic, flowy dress, consider going with a location that’ll have some wind – like the beach or a field.
More structured attire would look great against cool architectural features like an Addison Mizner building or at the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden.
