Engagement photos are a great way to show off your engagement on Facebook, Instagram, and can be a great photo to put on announcements and invitations. In most cases an engagement session lasts one to two hours, and usually are taken between 6-9 months ahead of a wedding.

Picking your location
Personally I have always enjoyed taking engagement photos outside, in local parks. Places like Lake Calhoun, The Lyndale Rose Garden, are great options for engagement sessions in Minneapolis. The only question becomes, how do I look my best?
Wear comfortable clothes
The best place to start planning for your engagement photos is to have loose clothing that you are comfortable in. This is not the time to pull out the fashionista dress or the Italian Suit!
Complement with complimentary colors
As far as colors go, it is always easiest to have one partner go with a darker color like charcoal, navy, or black and have the other go with a light complimentary color.
For example in the photo below, the couple went with a dark color theme with black and red. This perfectly compliments the fall colors, and the loose comfortable clothing allows them to be comfortable and natural.
