top engagement photos from 2014

To everyone reading this who just got engaged over the holidays, Congrats!!! :) We know that Christmas is one of the most popular times of year for popping the question, so it was a given that our end of the year recaps would include our favorite engagement sessions from the past year, to inspire those of you who will be planning for your own in the very near future!

We love how the engagement sessions from 2014 brought us so much personality + fun. Our advice to couples wanting their photos to stand out from the pack: pick a unique location, use fun props, design it around your first date, wear a fun dress, etc.! Make these photos all about the two of you + your uniquely original love story.

Ready to see the best of 2014? Check out our picks below: unique locations first, fun outfits next, killer props third, and ending with a sweet session designed around the couple’s first date!
