For those of you Halloween lovers that can’t get enough of the Halloween spirit, let this fabulous Spooky Engagement by Los Angeles Photographer Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder inspire you. It has just the right amount of scary for a Halloween theme wedding invitation, save the date or can use years later as a postcard! And it honestly is a lot of fun to shoot!
This particular Halloween Theme Engagement was taken at a local city park. Remember it is all about location, location, location! We wanted to give it a Friday the 13th meets Stephen King’s It feel, and that’s why we selected this park that actually had a lake with lots of trees around. We also loved this location because thanks to the trees, it gave us a great amount of shade and light. The only issue we had was coming up with the right time to shoot, since it is a public park we had to arrive there early enough to guard our spot but then wait for the sun to move the right spot and not give the shoot a washed out look.
Props are just as important when shooting a Halloween Theme Engagement shoot. We bought some yellow caution tape from Home Depot and decorated the area to give it a crime scene look. We then set up a spooky picnic with fun props to give the the couple on their date from hell spot!
This was a lot of fun to shoot because it was very nontraditional and allowed everyone to just have fun with it. The girls even had one of their parents to wear the clown costume and be part of the fun! We totally recommend a Halloween Theme Engagement Photo Session for those that are looking for something unique and creative. It does help if you also love Halloween!
