7. A Coastal Shipwreck Engagement Session

8. A Destination Session with a Waterfall

Favorite Engagements of 2015

Traveling somewhere amazing this coming year? Why not use it as an excuse to snag some truly memorable engagement (or anniversary) photos like the couple from this Stunning Icelandic Anniversary Session did! We love this shot by Lauren Fair Photography.

9. Sand Dunes + Lots of Style

Favorite Engagements of 2015

We love that this duo opted for a Scenic Two-Part Engagement Session! Their sand dune photos by Ben Sasso are totally frame-worthy (and we are so excited to be sharing this couple’s wedding on GWS next month!!)

10. Love at Great Heights on Top of a Crane

Favorite Engagements of 2015

If you do something unique for work, like the crane operator groom-to be from this Engagement Session on Top of a Crane, we say incorporate it into your session! High fives to Our Love Is Loud for climbing up to the top to snag these images!

11. Engagement Photos with a Motorcycle

Favorite Engagements of 2015

We love how the cute couple from this Whimsical Creekside Engagement Session, by Clayton Austin, incorporated the groom’s motorcycle into the photos! Incorporate your favorite possession into your photos to give them a personal spin :)
