If you’re anything like the wedding photography team at Le Image, you must be so excited that fall is finally here. Fall in New York, and the east coast in general, is a wonderful season and a perfect time to schedule your engagement photo shoot! September is quickly becoming one of the most popular months for weddings and it’s easy to see why. September is full of great 3-day weekends (Columbus Day & Labor Day), it’s still pleasant weather and the beginning of autumn is always a magical and romantic season. Our wedding photographers also suggest that September and October are great months for engagement photos. Below is a list of our top three engagement photo ideas for fall.
Engagement Photography Ideas
Central Park– Central Park is always the perfect venue for New York Wedding photography but fall really brings the park to life! Starting in October, the New York City trees start to change color and the beautiful fall leaves can provide a great background for your couple’s photos. If you’re stumped for engagement poses or inspiration, take a blanket and picnic basket and have the engagement photographer take pictures of you and your loved one enjoying the outdoors!
Pumpkin Patch- Do we have any “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” fans? If so, channel your inner Linus and Sally and find a great pumpkin patch for your engagement pictures. Pumpkin picking is a great fall engagement photography idea and provides you tons of props for your photos. Also, natural light is always the most flattering!
Apple Orchard– Our New York engagement photographers love this idea for an engagement photography location and not just because you’re surrounded by delicious pick-able snacks during the photo shoot. Apple Orchards are very beautiful and full of color, making them a perfect location for your New York engagement photos.
We hope this article has given you plenty of engagement photo inspiration. Autumn is a beautiful season and we hope you and your loved ones make the most of it!
