8 Tips for your amazing engagement video

Updated: Mar 15






1. TELL US YOUR STORY



The better we know each other, the better we get to tell your story. At the end of the engagement video we are going to be the best of friends! We get the coolest stuff by bonding with you.


What makes a great story that is heartfelt and authentic is how well we know the two amazing people who the engagement video is about.




2. THE LOCATION IS WHERE YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS



The location is the most important part, as this is going to set the mood and feel of your video to make you feel all the tingles inside. We are lucky to be located in Southern California where we can choose from ocean the mountain ranges, and deserts to snow. We can help you pick an adventurous location that brings meaning and makes you both exited. The setting is simple yet powerful; you are with your favorite person in this world, expressing the deep love you have for this other magical human being, and you can't keep your hands off! There have been many times that we were at a beautiful location and it starts to bring up some powerful emotions of deep love connections that we are all part of this big beautiful earth.



2. WARDROBE



This is where the fun starts! Pick out an outfit that you love and compliments you. Do you feel good in it? Does it make you feel comfortable? Your outfit should make you confident to stand out from the location. Don't be afraid to experiment with this! Send us pictures if you need a second set of eyes, or in our case it would be 4. The outfit that looks extra cool in video are long dresses that have that flow to them. Feel free to bring extra options to the shoot. Remember you can always return it if we don't use it.


3. BRING PROPS TO PLAY WITH


Sometimes we just need something to play with because we don't know what to do with our hands. Props help to be more playful and gives the story a bit more of an edge.


  • Pets

  • Flowers

  • Chairs

  • Ribbons

  • Musical instrument

  • Champagne & picnic

  • Smoke


4. BE YOURSELVES


We want to capture your true selves; yes we want the real you! Be the silliest or be the affectionate couple with all the cuddles and smooches! We like to capture your love as raw and organic as we can. We like our videos to have authenticity to your life.



5. POSING


We give directions on posing but instead of worrying so much about posing we like to put you in a certain mindset. We like to focus more on the real experience of raw emotional connections. Imagine you are at the airport because one of you went on a long trip, and you are seeing each other for the first time in a very long time. What would your reaction be like? That's the kind of emotions we try to capture. Another great tip is to pretend you two are attracting magnets always-connected. We are always willing to try new ideas and new poses so if you have something you want to try we are all up for it. We want to feel goosebumps when watching our videos!
