Cute Midwest Engagement Photo Ideas Along A River

Today, we are so excited to be sharing these sweet engagement photo ideas with you all! We love the relaxed environment, fun colors, and tender moments shared between this couple.

Nature provides a stunning backdrop for occasions such as this one. Before you decide to travel far distances for your engagement session, consider stepping foot into your own backyard. If there is something the two of you love, try using it as a prop. From signature coffee to horseback riding, try to commemorate a hobby that fits both of your personalities. This couple used colorful paddles from a canoe, as a focal point within their shoot. These props even match their custom, orange save the dates!

During your engagement photography, try to visit different nearby locations; this will allow for more unique photo opportunities and variety within your session. From the scenic river to the romantic bonfire, we are swooning over all of these pictures.
