2. Skate Away: Lace up your skates for a fun afternoon of photos and ice skating. You’ll be laughing the entire time as you support each other on your skate around the rink. (via Jeff Loves Jessica)


3. Mountain Top: You don’t need snow to get that wintery vibe. If your love for each other makes you feel on top of the world, why not have your engagement shoot in the mountains? You’ll be able to get a great view and even greater photos. (via Jenna Bechtholt / Green Wedding Shoes)


4. Playful Pair: Show off your fun personalities by adding a little bit of playfulness into your engagement session. Snowball fights are definitely encouraged. (via Rebekah Westover / Love of Fair)


5. Power Couple: Standing side by side for your engagement photos is a great way to show off your stylish outfits. Plus, any excuse to wear a plaid poncho is okay with us. (via Winsome and Wright / Style Me Pretty)

14. City Slickers: Okay, so technically this is an anniversary shoot, but spending a day frolicking around NYC for photo ops is just too good to pass up. Hit up your favorite go-to spots to make memories that will last a lifetime. (via BellaLu Photography / Green Wedding Shoes)
