There are so many beautiful locations in Ireland that you can use as backdrops for your upcoming engagement pictures. How can you choose the best spot to capture the essence of your love and the beauty of Ireland?
Throughout this guide, we will help you figure out what's most important to you and your fiance as you choose the perfect Irish backdrop for your engagement photos.
Location is key for engagement photos, and finding the perfect one can make or break your shoot. If you're not from Ireland and don't know your way around, it's a good idea to hire a local photographer who knows where all of the best spots are.
Here is a list of some of the most popular spots for engagement pictures:
Cliffs of Moher
The White Friar Street Church
Antrim Castle Gardens
Malahide Castle Gardens
There is No Better Backdrop than Ireland
The Irish landscape is your backdrop. It's beautiful, it has history, and it's full of interesting locations. The Irish countryside offers all the right colours to make your engagement photos amazing. Dublin also offers its own unique culture and rich history, filled with winding cobblestone streets and stunning architecture.
Choose Your Clothing to Compliment the Location
When getting ready for your engagement pictures, make sure that your outfits are neither too casual nor too formal for the setting you will be going to for your photos.
Try and wear clothing that will help you stand out from the background but not too loud or obvious. Light pastels and warm colours will compliment any Irish setting.
It's incredible how much the Irish landscape can change in just a few miles, so we recommend revisiting places often to capture different seasons and moods. The most important thing is to have fun! We know that when things go wrong or don't go as planned, it's easy to get stressed out, but remember: it's just an engagement photo shoot!
If you have a specific vision in mind, make sure you communicate that with your photographer. Bring props, a change of clothes, and a loving attitude as you get ready for your close-up before your big day.
