Awkward Engagement Photos — What Not To Do

Here at The Knot, we’ve seen our fair share of beautiful engagement photos. Heck, if I ever get engaged (don’t jinx me!) I’ll wrestle my to-be-fiancé into getting them. But as it turns out, engagement photo sessions just aren’t for everyone. Here are some tips to avoid the photo faux pas these couples made.

Be On the Same Page

When it comes to something as simple as where to point, you should definitely know what your vision is. Going in different directions? Marriage might not be the next best step...am I right?

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
