The Best Ways to Capture Your Love in Photos

2021 trends have been announced, and nature is in. With the pandemic having a significant impact on our lives, people are turning to nature. Flowers, plants, and greenery are all trends to watch for in 2021 as we try to bring some peace and tranquility into our lives.

Celebrating an engagement is truly a light for both you and your loved ones during a time where life is a bit darker for everyone. In this article, we explore some of the best ideas and backdrops to share your happy news with the world and create memories in a time where connecting with our family, friends and loved ones is more difficult.

Memorable Engagement Photo Locations

Somewhere Sentimental

One of the best ways to recreate the magic is to pick a location that is meaningful and significant to you both. Perhaps it is the place where you met, or the spot where you realized that you were in love.

Whatever the case may be, re-visiting a place that you feel transformed your life and set the stage for your love to blossom can truly bring out that sense of joy and nostalgia, and create beautiful pictures, naturally. You’ll be so focused on reminiscing together that the photographer is bound to capture the most beautiful moments.

Greenhouse or Garden

Since 2021 is all about reconnecting with nature, both indoors and outdoors, a greenhouse or beautiful lush garden is a great spot for engagement photos. The lush greenery and/or vibrant flowers as your backdrop really instills a sense of peace and happiness.

Somewhere Upscale

If you’re missing getting dressed up to go out for a fancy night out with your boo because of the pandemic, perhaps you can use your engagement photos as a reason to put on your best outfit. A good photographer should be able to provide you with more inspiration for the type of backdrop that will work best with this look. Especially if you give them a few details about what’s most important to you, as a couple. This look goes particularly well in black and white, with a backdrop of beautifully preserved roses that you get to keep for years to come afterward. Perhaps, using them again on your wedding day.


Go Organic

If you’re not the flashy type and you prefer a more natural and organic look, there are a million ways to incorporate this into your engagement photos. Dress in your coziest flannels and sweaters, sit in a pile of beautifully colored leaves in the fall with a coffee in hand. There are so many ways to incorporate who you are as a couple into your photos, and now is the time to show the world how much you love each other in an element that makes you both comfortable and as natural as possible.

Close-Up Selfie

If you want every ounce of your happiness to be shared with your loved ones, a close-up shot of the joy in your faces is a beautiful way to capture your happiness together.


Any photo taken by a lake, river, ocean, or beach is simply stunning and gives a sense of tranquility.

No matter which backdrop you choose for your photos, what matters most is your happiness and creating memories of this special time in your life. It’s an opportunity to capture all of the love you have for one another, so that you can look back for years to come and reminisce about how far you’ve come together.
