Pinwheel for Simplicity

Pinwheels make us think of long summer days, fun and a time when everything was simpler. We think pinwheels look fantastic when your engagement shoot is located at a park. Sometimes all you need is space, each other and a pinwheel.


Bubbles for Fun

Can anyone be unhappy when they’re blowing bubbles? Of course not, that’s why we love seeing them in engagement photos. Couples can have some fun with bubblegum or some bubble solution. One of our favorite uses of bubbles was a couple that went to a children’s museum and had the bride stand in a large bubble while her fiancé pretended to pop the bubble.


Sign for the Trendsetters

One of the trendiest props for engagement photos and wedding shoots are signs. Now, you don’t have to spend a lot to have signs.  We recommend using a chalkboard and different colored chalk to write or draw your thoughts, but a slip of paper will do in a snap! Then, all you need to do is let go and have fun.

Bikes for Kids at Heart

Do you love back country roads and long lazy days with your loved ones? Then vintage bikes are perfect for you. Take inspiration from the bike-riding scene in The Notebook and let your fiancé take you on a bike ride. Did you ever believe that you’d get to ride off into the sunset with your love?


Your Best Friend

No, we’re not talking about your human besties. Whether it’s a dog, cat, or pet cockatoo, pets are an important part of your relationship. While cute, cuddly pictures are always adorable, we suggest you snap a few pictures of your pet stealing the show. Bridechilla carries pet wear so your cat or dog will be looking his or her finest alongside you.

Now, are you ready to take your photos? These are simple, but fun props that let couples shine, so get out there and show everyone how fantastic you are!
