Can’t decide what to do, what to wear or where to go for your engagement pics? Here are 10 ways to engage locally.

1. Include your pets.
2. Think about color (and props!).
A big bouquet of bright red balloons and a dress to match? Perfect. Photo by George Street Photo and Video.
3. Mix it up a bit.
Try mixing up your poses: include formal, candid and more intimate shots. Photos by Erin McGinn Photography.
4. Black + white = romantic.
While front-facing, full-colored shots are nice, don’t hesitate to emphasize the romance of it all. (Anyone else see the Dear John movie poster resemblance? Swoon!) Photo by Gabrielle Marks Photography.
5. Include iconic Rhode Island imagery.
Be proud of where you come from (or where you met) and incorporate a Rhode Island staple that everyone will recognize. Photos by M. Studios.
6. Go back to your place.
Go for a locale that is special to the two of you, like the park bench where you first held hands or the classroom where you first met (these two are high school sweethearts). Photo by Olivia Gird Photography.
7. Be creative!
Work with your photographer to come up with unique shots and angles. Photo by Lauren Halvorson Photography.
8. It’s the Ocean State. Enough said.
This is Rhode Island and there’s a whole lot of beautiful coast out there. See if your photographer knows of any local hidden gems and keep your loved ones guessing. Photo by Joseph Laurin Photography.
9. Consider the time of day.
Of course you’ll want some good shots of your faces, but consider scheduling your session later in the day to catch a sunset. Photos by Blueflash Photography.
10. Don’t forget Providence!
