Today we’re giving you 10 ideas that can help you narrow down your options and pick the right spot. Are you ready to begin? Let’s start.

(1) Where You Met Or Your First Date Spot

Where did you and your partner first meet? You can reminisce the day you first met during your engagement shoot! Go to the very same spot where you first met or where your first date took place.

(2) A Place That Holds a Special Meaning For You Both

The love story of architects Celine and Louis began when they worked at the same firm, so for their pre-wedding shoot, they chose a location that was meaningful to them: an architectural project they both worked on. How about shooting engagement photos at a place that holds a special meaning for you and your fiancé?

(3) Your Hometown or Home City

You can always highlight your hometown or home city during your pre-wedding shoot. It’s a way to celebrate your roots! Nicole and Jimmy did just that by taking photos around Hong Kong, including places like Man Mo Temple, which reflects their cultural background.

(4) Where The Proposal Took Place

We just love how Gladys and Ron flew back to Japan and shot their pre-wedding photos at the exact same spot where Ron proposed! Consider this very sweet location idea for your engagement shoot, too.

(5) A Place You’ve Always Wanted To Go To Together

One of the things couples like to do is to tick off places to visit form their bucket list one by one. Did you ever think of hiring a photographer to come with you so you can take engagement photos while touring your must-visit destination spot? If you like this and if you have an upcoming trip, you might want to start looking for a photographer now.

(6) A Place That Reflects Your Hobbies Or Interests

Gisele and Calvin love to play tennis so it was a no brainer to choose a tennis court as one of the shoot locations during their pre-wedding photo session. To their advantage, this particular tennis court happens to come in the cutest blue color! Choose a place that reflects your hobbies and interests–plus point if it’s a photogenic spot, too!

(7) A Place That Best Reflects Your Favorite Season

Like many couples, Lisa & Stanley love spring and Sakura season so they were determined to catch the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom in Japan for their engagement photo shoot. They also wore traditional Japanese attires and shot in a traditional home to complete the whole look. If you have a favorite time of the year, choose a place that can highlight that season.

(8) Your Favorite Restaurant

Every couple has that one restaurant they they just keep coming back to, do you agree? If you do, you can opt for a casual photo session there. Order your favorite dishes then just chill and relax! This is the perfect setting for a fuss-free and very laid back engagement photo session.

What’s your favorite movie scene? How about recreating it? Teresa and Percy did just that! Inspired by iconic scenes from Life of Pi, the Notebook, The Painted Veil, and a poem by Pablo Neruda, these romantic photos were carefully planned for months. Well, done to this duo because their pre-wedding photo session is so stunning!
