Are you dreaming of movie like editorial and romantic couple scenes? Wanting something a little more elegant and glam for your engagement photos? If so, you’re going to love these elopement styled engagement photos! The adrenaline of feeling like you’re eloping and getting a mini wedding day practice… add in a beautiful location and your lover… and you can create breathtaking photos that you’ll cherish forever. Plus I’ll totally guide you along, give you fun prompts and direct you the entire way!
Find the Perfect Elopement Styled Outfit!
To create this you’ll want to find something white and black to wear! Like a short cute dress or fun white suit. Maybe switch it up and wear black and have your partner wear white? Whatever works for you! But why save a white dress and black tux for just your wedding day? It’s more fun to wear it twice! 😉 Some of my favorite places to find something is Lulus, Princess Polly or ASOS.
Add Elopement Styled Details!
To spice it up, add fun details such as a bouquet, chic heels, pearls, a boutonnière, or maybe even some hip shades. You can hire a local florist, maybe even ask a florist you want to use for your wedding! Or you can even create your own bouquet. Literally go to Trader Joe’s or your local grocery store, pick out your favorite flowers and colors, and have fun creating it! The more details the better – but keep them fun, classy and easy to move around and use!
Find that Ideal Elopement Location!
Find a location that has a vintage vibe and cool architecture. Some ideas include a downtown five star hotel, the local courthouse, maybe the public library, or any building with columns and warm neutral tones is perfect! If you have absolutely no idea if you have any buildings that fit this vibe, simply get in your car and drive around the city to scout it out! You’d be surprised how many corners or buildings, streets, lobbies, and more are picture perfect for an elopement styled engagement! Also, I will totally provide a location guide for you and tell you all the best spots!
Lastly, just have fun with it!! Get ready to be intimate, giggle, kiss a lot, and feel like your in a scene of a romantic movie – cause let’s face it, you basically are!
