Engagement Photo Props

Make your engagement photos as unique as your relationship! Show your fun and quirky side with props to give an added unique flair.

    1. Umbrella. Shield the glaring sun, or stay dry amidst showers, an umbrella is a cute and classic prop for engagement pictures. It causes you to snuggle in close, and can be used for up close headshot type shots if it is extremely sunny outside to create a less harsh tone.
    2. Blanket/blanket scarf. This one is pretty popular, but make it your own! Use a t-shirt quilt of all of the races the two of you ran together, snuggle up in a blanket your mom crocheted for you when you left for college, etc. Props create an instant love story conversation piece.

    1. Personalized drink ware. Engaved champagne flutes, Mr. and Mrs. coffee mugs, Starbucks coffee with a “fiancee” name written on the side, you get the idea. This creates an instant close up shot of your  left hand with that gorgeous sparkler. It creates a natural pose, and gives a lifestyle portrait vibe that can make you feel relaxed.
    2. Animals. Do you and your significant other share a pet? You can’t forget your furry friend when taking photos. Seize the opportunity to take a family photo with your pet. This doesn’t just have to apply to pets. Horses in a field, birds flying in a flock around you, butterflies in a garden, and many others are also great ways to incorporate animals to create a one of a kind photo.

    1. Food/drink. You love chocolate truffles and he loves craft beer. Make a picnic out of it, displaying and styling it beautifully for a relaxed and cozy lifestyle portrait session. Feed each other for a romantic and intimate shot. You can’t get much more personal than indulging in your favorite food and drink.
    2. Transportation. Some of the best engagement photos are the ones taken between sites. Take photos on the metro, subway, in a taxi cab, on a bicycle, on a motorcycle, in your favorite car. This usually appeases to your man, so let him have fun with this!

At Home Date Idea: Beer Tasting Game

Love hosting fun nights in with your friends? Or even just looking for a great at home date night idea? What about a blind beer tasting game?! It’s fun, it’s different (not that a good ole fashion pizza and movie night isn’t awesome…) and it’s not crazy expensive!

Draft Magazine asked Michael Ferrari, a cicerone and manager of The Common Table in Dallas, for his best blind tasting flight. “There is so much variation among beers that look exactly the same, and having beers that are visually indistinguishable leaves all of the guesswork to the two most important senses in beer sampling: smell and taste,” he says. “The best mix is one that uses a few style archetypes with a couple of oddballs to keep things interesting.

How to Create an At Home Blind Beer Tasting Game:

  1. Create the menu.
  2. Put all the beer bottles into brown paper bags (ya know, the real classy ones from the liquor stores!) and then wrap a rubber band around the neck so there can’t be cheaters!
  3. Pour all your guests a sample of each beer. To keep all the beers organized, we recommend getting a butcher’s paper table cloth. Then you can have each guest draw 5 circles around their beer mugs and write 1 through 5 under each circle. Pour everyone a sample of Beer #1 first, then Beer #2, and on and on.
  4. Under each of their samples, guests can write on the butcher paper table cover and take notes about each flavor.
  5. After the reveals, the guest that got the most guesses correct gets to take home the left over beer!
