Destination engagement sessions are becoming increasingly popular among engaged couples. In recent years I have had the opportunity to travel to several locations to help celebrate couples engagements. If you are looking for an extra special experience to celebrate your engagement a unique location is perfect! Let’s dive into what a destination session is, who should consider this type of session, the benefits, and some of my favorite locations.
A destination engagement session is when a couple travels to a specific location outside of where they live. Usually, the location is significant to the couple and is a place they have been wanting to explore. Although, it can be a place they have visited in the past or a place that has a special meaning.
The purpose of these sessions is to capture beautiful and memorable photos in a scenic location. These sessions are often scheduled as a part of a destination wedding.
This provides an opportunity for couples to get to know their photographer and build a relationship before the big day. However, even couples who are not planning a destination wedding may choose to have a destination engagement photoshoot. Simply for the experience and the opportunity to capture stunning photos in a special or new location.
Destination engagement sessions are for anyone, but are typically for couples who are looking to do something a bit different. These couples usually are looking to adventure to a new location to celebrate this new milestone in their relationship. For example, Jordan and Luke wanted to have their engagement photos in Tennessee. So we headed down south and snapped these gorgeous photos at the Hermitage Hotel and Parthenon nearby. Later this year I will also be meeting them in New Jersey to photograph their wedding!
Being engaged is a special time in a couple’s life. It’s a time that often gets overshadowed by wedding planning. The engagement period of a couples relationship often feels like it doesn’t last long. There is so much anticipation and planning- that it’s not given the credit it deserves.
A destination engagement photoshoot can be a wonderful way to celebrate this special time and create lasting memories together. It’s a chance to take a break from the stress of wedding planning and focus on your relationship. Also, it gives you the chance to take a trip, just the two of you. This can help mark this time in your lives. I guarantee you won’t regret having a destination engagement session, if you choose to do so.
Destination engagement sessions are ideal for couples who want to create memorable experiences and stunning images. If you love to travel this is a great opportunity to check-off one of your bucket list locations.
