Top Five Tricks For Engagement Photos

There's a lot of talk and info regarding photography for weddings. But what about the engagement photos?! Aren't those just as important? YOU BETCHA! That's why I've combed the internet to give you the best TOP five tricks for amazing engagement photos.
None of these are listed from most important to least important. It's completely random. The fact that they are on the list means THEY ARE ALL IMPORTANT!
I also want to invite the photographers out there on Vingle to share your tricks and strategies for getting perfect engagement photos.
1. Keep it short
Professional shoots shouldn't be more than three hours. Even two hours is a long time. But definitely anything more than three hours and misery starts to set in, for the happy couple and the photographer too.
2. Fit before fashion
Of course you want to look your best! But part of looking your best is wearing something that fits you best. You know I love a good Stuart Weitzman stiletto, but if it puts a grimace on your face (or a fake smile), then it's probably best to go with flirty kitten heels or flats. Barefoot works too!
3. Underwater
Underwater shots are pretty slick...when they're done right! Here's the trick: do it right about noon, or when the sun is highest and most direct. This is going to give you the best lighting in the pool, lake or sea. Remember safety and buoys above the water to mark a no-boat zone.
4. Airbrush leg spray
Show them legs, but do it right! Lotion, just before a shoot, is NOT a good idea. Save that for after the shower. What you want is Sally Hansen’s airbrush leg spray or foundation. This is going to give you legs that look perfect and effortless.
5. Whiter teeth
So, here's how to get the illusion of whiter teeth for NO MONEY: petroleum jelly. With a q-tip, (not your fingers!), swab a dab over your teeth. Doing so will reflect light, giving the impression that your teeth are whiter than they really are.

ATTENTION: You Can Become A Mermaid, Really!
I have discovered my life long goal, and it isn't being rich, famous, successful or a good person (just kidding on the last one) . I want, no I need, to become a mermaid. Just think about it for a second, swimming super fast, always being in the ocean, helping your sea creature friends...its practically the American Dream, except better. Celeb fashion photographer Angelina Venturella and amazing underwater photographer Chiara Salomoni have teamed up with the most interesting man in the world, Eric of the Mertailor to capture stunning pictures of "mermaids" to raise awareness AND money to preserve the ocean. I need to be apart of this and you will too after you see the mind boggling pictures. Its kind of amazing to see a mermaid out in the open, right by houses! I think thats what I love about this picture. It makes this dream seem a bit more attainable. Just look at the details on her tail! And the top piece its own work of art! Being able to go to work and be made up to look that outta this world....#goals. There is something so mystical about his picture. Mermaids have been in folklore for forever, and this picture certainly makes it even more romantic. Again just look at the TAIL! The Mertailor has found his talent and it is jaw dropping. I love that project mermaid doesn't just stick with typical mermaid colors. This dark and mysterious mertail is beautiful and completely enchanting.
