When Moho Photos sent us this carnival engagement shoot, we broke out into huge smiles and knew we had to share it. If you’re looking to do something fun and unique for your engagement photos, a carnival (or amusement park or state fair) is an excellent photoshoot idea!
Champlain Valley Fair Engagement Session
These photos were taken at the iconic Champlain Valley Fair in Essex, Vermont. Dubbed “the ten best days of summer” this fair happens every year in late August to early September. (Check out this list of fairs and festivals in Vermont for other possible venues.)
If you’re hoping to book an engagement session at the Fair (or another carnival) we recommend trying to go on a weekday versus a weekend because it will be less crowded and you’ll have more time to linger and get your shot.
Ideas for Carnival Engagement Photos
Channel your inner child and have FUN! Go on timeless rides like the carousel or ferris wheel; binge your favorite carnival snacks like cotton candy, funnel cakes, or popcorn; get competitive over some games… the fun photo opportunities are endless!
Another benefit of this location is that carnivals provide a variety of colorful backdrops for photos during the day or nighttime, which gives you lots of options.
