I would like to interrupt the big engagement ring reveal with something that’s been on my mind lately—engagement photos!
We are having our engagement photos taken soon, and I am racking my brain for ideas and inspiration.We want to do something fun and different for our e-session, but it’s hard to step away from some of the beautiful ideas that have been trending lately. In case you have been living under a wedding rock, here are some e-session “themes” that keep popping up:

I keep seeing blankets everywhere. Either people are wrapping themselves in blankets, lying on them in a field, or using one to picnic in a garden. The more handmade the blanket, the better. Bonus points for quilts. I think blankets give engagement photos a warm, comfortable, and homey feel, and I can see why they are so popular. We don’t actually own a handmade blanket (or blankets with any character), so I don’t think we will be using this idea in our own engagement photos.
