There are a lot of different factors which are going to affect how good a picture looks. Photography is an
art in this way, because while different people may be taking pictures of the same things, they will often
get wildly different results based on these factors.

Planning Your Engagement Photos Once a couple decides to get married the real work beings; planning, planning and more planning are the order of the day every day for the following months leading up to the wedding date. There is no escaping it, fellas, so gear up and get in line with your fiancé because it is going to get brutal. That is unfair to say, it will not be that brutal so long as the couple goes about it in the right way. While planning may seem like an arduous and sometimes unnecessary task, preparing for future events makes those events run vastly more smoothly than if the couple tries to wing it or play it by ear. This principle of planning to make things run smoothly includes even the principle step of wedding day preparations for most couples, the engagement photos. Engagement photos are important to a wedding mostly because of their appearance on the wedding invitations but they can also serve another purpose. Get to know the photographer Engagement photos can serve as a preliminary practice run of how the photography aspect of the wedding day itself will unfold. Engagement photos will accomplish this by first introducing the hired photographer to the couple and allow both parties to gain a feel for how the other works with photography. This will ensure that any bumps that may arise during picture taking will get sorted out before the big day and will give the photographer and the couple a chance to plan together various aspects of the future wedding photos. With engagement photos accomplishing so much more than simple pictures on an invitation, one can see the importance of proper planning to ensure that the engagement photo shoot itself goes smoothly. Themes The first thing that a couple should consider when planning their engagement photos is to decide whether or not they wish to incorporate some sort of theme to their photos. Themes can be fun to work out and can tie the photos together but whether an exact theme is chosen by the couple or not they must still decide on a concept or general idea of what they want their photos to include. This concept is important because it will dictate how the remainder of the photo shoot will go and what different aspects will have to be included, such as wardrobe and location. Concepts to an engagement photo shoot could include decisions on whether the couple wants to take fun pictures, romantic pictures, passionate or sexy pictures, conservatively simple yet elegant pictures, or more of a reality TV style image that captures the couple in everyday activity. Whatever the concept or theme, the couple can then plan their location and wardrobe around that theme making those decisions flow with relative ease. The location, urban or earthy, industrial or sentimental, will follow what theme the couple decides upon. Likewise will the outfits be determined by the theme or concept chosen by the couple, whether the wardrobe be athletic or sophisticated, lavish or simple. Announcing your engagement to world can be an exciting and fulfilling event and the photos taken to immortalize this event should be equally exciting and fulfilling which can only be accomplished by proper planning.
