Tips to a successful Punta Cana beach engagement session

 

DECIDE ON A VIBE

Would you like your beach engagement photos to look adventurous and fun, or soothing and romantic sounds more like you? Thinking ahead on the overall mood you are hoping for your photoshoot will help you when sourcing outfits, accessories, props, and locations. I always advise having a single vibe for beach engagement photos so you can stay on track and avoid loudness. Also, make sure to communicate your style and vibe with your photographer beforehand, this will also help him/her to think ahead about posing ideas to help convey the results you are hoping.

 

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

If you are going for something dreamy and romantic, For example, wearing a flowy dress of a beautiful pastel color will turn your beach engagement photos into a real fairytale.

If you are into the more casual and playful look, beach engagement photos can turn into a real adventure by just deciding to wear something carefree and informal. Victoria + Jorge decided on the latter.

Whatever you choose to wear, I will always recommend that you and your partner coordinate your outfits selections so that they have at least one common element. It could be the overall style or the same or complementary color palettes; this will help to keep a cohesive look, which will end up in impressive beach engagement photos.

 

BRING PROPS

Any element of significant meaning for both of you will help, throw in a cute beach blanket or a pair of unique sunglasses to make the setting more visually attractive and unique. It’s lovely when a photoshoot tells a story, and props are always welcome.

 

PLAN FOR THE RIGHT TIME

Ask your photographer on the best time for your beach engagement photos. Especially if you are on vacation in a place you have never been to before. If possible, try to schedule it on weekdays instead of weekends, to avoid crowds and enjoy some privacy, especially if you are kind of a shy person. Also, try to schedule it as close as possible to sunset time to enjoy softer and more favorable light and more enjoyable overall environment. Sunrise also is a wonderful option if you and your fiance enjoy raising with the sun. (Note: if your photographer tells you that any time on the day is good for photos run away from him/her.)

 

PERMIT

Confirm with your photographer if there is a permit needed for the beach that you are hoping to set your pictures done.

 

COME PREPARED

Bring Flip flops, towels, maybe an extra change of clothes just in case and water.
