It's National Picnic Day! All the Details You Need for the Perfect Picnic Engagement

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.
