In the weeks after Valentine’s Day, you might find that as a wedding and engagement photographer, this could be one of your busiest times of the year.

Their engagement photographs are where the couple are also likely to find the images for their ‘Save the Date’ cards too, so it’s really important that the images are fantastic.

A bit of portrait editing can make sure that the images you give them are really great.

Here are some ways to make sure that your engagement shoots go smoothly.

Have some location ideas

Think of some unusual locations for your photo shoot. If the couple live in your town, or met somewhere interesting, then that would be a good place to start. Perhaps they want to visit somewhere out of town, and no doubt they’ll have some good ideas. But it’s always useful for you as the photographer to have some ideas ready, even if it’s just for inspiration.

Have some props to hand, or use photography software

You could have some handmade or vintage props in your toolkit, which you can bring out if you wish. Something handmade adds a personal, unique feel to your images, making the couple feel extra special.

If you don’t have any props to hand, you can still ask the couple to pose as if they had a prop. With Anthropics’ other photo editing software, Smart Photo Editor, it is easy to add objects after the photo has been taken.

Put your clients at ease with portrait editing software

As a photographer, you need to be as friendly and approachable as possible. Your clients might be a little uncomfortable and self-conscious, but it is up to you to be relaxed and make them feel relaxed too. Another way you can assure them that their images will be perfect is with your portrait editing software. You can make sure that everyone will look their very best.
