15 Stunning Engagement Photos That Will Knock the Air Right Out of You


It's not a shocker that we at BRIDES are absolutely obsessed with engagement pictures. Unlike photos on your wedding day, which can sometimes feel posed and rushed, engagement pics allow you, as a couple, to really let your personalities shine through on film. Which is why we were super duper excited to see that the 50 winners of the Best of the Best Engagement Photography Collection from Junebug Weddings were recently released. Warning: your mouth is totally about to drop to the floor. They are THAT stunning.

Now before we take you through some of our utmost faves (which were really, really hard to choose TBH), it's worth noting that this isn't some little photography contest in the U.S. No, Junebug Weddings does it big — we mean REAL BIG. According to BuzzFeed, "the 2016 collection features winners chosen from more than 5,000 image submissions from photographers in 35 different countries" around the world. And to think we had trouble choosing our favorites from a more condensed list of 50. Le sigh.

But we digress. Whether you clicked on this post wanting some engagement pic inspiration of your own, or you just really, really wanted to see some couples crazy in love as Bey would say, these drop-dead-gorgeous photos have your needs 100 percent covered. We promise.

Just look at this presh take on The Notebook! Swoon.

Or this ~romantic~ hot air balloon sunset. What about this quick Italian getaway?

Or you know, a casual (and dare we say sexy) engagement photo in the middle of the ocean.

This deeply romantic diner pic is actually making us rethink our wedding locale...

Holding onto youth (and each other) forever.

Are words really even needed here?!

Adventures are endless, especially when you're with your best friend.

Speaking of best friend... pillow fight engagement pics? So. Down.

Patriotism at its finest.

And nature in its most beautiful state.

Or its most mesmerizing.

It only takes a moment...

...to fall in love.

And lastly, our absolute fave. We're in puppy love!
