What to wear? Most couples choose to bring two outfits for their session. When deciding what to wear for your engagement session, I always suggest clothing that fits under the description of “Timeless”. Neutral colors are always a great choice and blend nicely with almost any location. If you wear a bold color, my suggestion would be to find it in a solid as opposed to bold patterns and stripes. For example: If you want to wear the color red, find a solid red dress and pair it with neutral jewelry and shoes. Try to find a pallet where each color compliments each other and pick pieces based off of those colors. For example: If you are wearing a long black dress, you could choose a color pallet of blacks, whites, and blue jeans or khakis.
With that being said, the biggest piece of advice I can give you, is to wear what you feel most comfortable in! If you don’t feel comfortable in what you are wearing, it will show.
Don’t be afraid to dress up, but most importantly don't be afraid to be yourself.
Although the location does set the scene for your portraits, don’t overthink it! You two will be the main focus. If you are unsure on your preference of a backdrop, we are here to give suggestions.
Your engagement portraits don’t have to be just about the location, let’s do something fun!
Did you guys meet at a coffee shop? Let’s go get coffee downtown. Do you guys love going out on the boat? Let’s head to the water. A picnic at the park is a personal favorite. Our options are only limited to our imaginations. [If you guys are down for a helicopter ride, I am too.]
HAIR & MAKEUP
When you feel good, you’re confident and confidence translates into great photographs! For some people, getting their hair and make-up done does just that! You can use our engagement session day to do your wedding hair and make-up trial, or go for a more natural look. These are YOUR images and I want y’all to feel the best that you ever have. If you don’t feel like yourself with a lot of make up on, don’t wear it! Do what makes you feel the most confident.
“CAN WE BRING OUR DOG?”
Of course! Make sure to bring some treats or their favorite toy!
“DO YOU SUGGEST ANY PROPS?”
A blanket for you guys to sit on, flowers, a motorcycle/vintage car, or even colorful smoke bombs can be awesome.
“CAN WE GO TO MORE THAN ONE LOCATION?”
Yup! Let’s go!
