We love a picnic as a romantic date; just bring your favorite snacks, your favorite person, and a cozy blanket to a pretty spot outside, and you're all set! And we love picnics as a theme for engagement photos even more. You can upgrade your basic picnic date by adding a few props that make sense for you as a couple, like vintage books or vintage suitcases, before heading to a grassy spot with your photographer. We're celebrating National Picnic Day on April 23 with these cute picnic engagement sessions.
1. Sweet Romance
Sweet treats and soft, pretty colors make this picnic session a winner.
2. Keep on Truckin'
Rent a classic truck and have your picnic in the bed.
3. Basket Case
We love these traditional baskets -- you can carry them on future picnics together!
4. Book It
If you're a book-loving couple, use classic texts throughout your photos.
5. Get Framed
Set a unique scene with mismatched vintage frames.
6. Fine Wine
Red, white, and blue blankets set an all-American scene.
7. Pedal Pushers
Incorporate a fun vintage bike into your shoot like this couple did.
8. A Sweet Spread
"Mr" and "Mrs" napkins are a sweet detail.

A wine and cheese date is romantic...and delicious!
