Props & Poses: Fall Engagement & Wedding Picture Ideas

Fall is just around the colorful corner, which means ‘tis the season for cooler weather and the most picturesque nature backdrops for outdoor engagement and wedding photos. The leaves change into warm shades of red, orange and golden yellow, while the air has just enough bite for you to strike those cuddled up poses in cozy sweaters and matching plaid shirts—you can’t get more beautiful or romantic than that.

To help you strike the right pose with the right seasonal props, here are seasonal favorite fall props and coordinating engagement and wedding picture ideas for outdoor shots.

Trees and Leaves

Very few things beat the romantic warm colors of fall, which are best seen on the trees and falling fall foliage. Here are some cute and fun poses to capture the picture-perfect amount of color, coziness and love.

Stand under or around trees with their stunning changing colors. If it works in your favor, the leaves will perfectly fall around you two.

Even more unique than just standing is dancing in the leaves. It’s a cool action shot. Plus, it’s cuter for couples—and way less messier—than jumping in them.

Seasonal Blanket

The crisp air is quite refreshing this time of year, but it can also be chilly. Stay warm as you cuddle with your partner using a cozy plaid or other seasonal pattern blanket.
