Activity-Based Engagement Shoot Ideas & inspiration

A Uniquely-You Engagement Session

Why not stray from the "traditional" engagement sessions at a park or a garden and do something that is more true to who you are as a couple?

Doing an activity-based engagement is often easier because it gives you something to do and takes the focus & pressure away from being photographed. This is especially preferred by people who may be a little shy in front of the camera, but also for those who want the photos to be a true reflection of who they are.
