There is no right or wrong for an engagement session. The most important thing that is you do it. Many times, couple select venues that offer multiple options for backdrops. It really does add to the variety of the pictures and it reduces the need for wardrobe changes. But how far are you willing to travel for the perfect location? We want to share these Utah mountain engagement photos where the couple traveled over 200 miles for just the right spot.
This featured couple came from Idaho Falls, Idaho to Brighton, Utah so that they could get pictures in the mountains of Utah.
The most interesting part of this shot is not just the location but they are wearing. You would expect a session in a venue like this to have the couple dressed more outdoorsy. But they are wearing ensembles for a nice night on the town. The colors of their clothes blend in well with the surroundings.
They are pictured in the woods embracing along a tree and in the middle of a clearing.
If you are planing an engagement session, don’t settle for just any venue. Pick a place that has meaning to you or provides multiple backdrops. Don’t be afraid to travel if necessary. Your sacrifice will be rewarded with spectacular pictures just like this couple.
