What To Wear:
Probably the one question that I get asked the most! Keep in mind that you dont have to be super styling' to achieve an amazing outfit for your session. The best advice I can give about outfit selection would be...
Try to COORDINATE instead of matching.
Make sure you look like YOU and wear what makes you feel COMFORTABLE!
Most couples bring two outfits (one casual and one a bit more dressier). However, if you want to stick with just one awesome outfit... thats okay too!
Bold jewelry, scarves, fresh florals, and colored shoes photograph really well!
LADIES!! Professional hair and makeup is definitely a good idea! Besides, you deserve a day of pampering! :)
I usually take a ring shot! So, if your ring could use a little cleaning, that would really make it SHINE!
Be On Time:
This is really important! Most Engagement sessions will take place right before the sun sets so, if you are late, we will have a very limited time for photos before the sun goes down. So take into consideration before hand, things like hair & makeup and traffic, so we don't loose any of that pretty sunlight!
Relax and Have FUN:
As you're preparing for your Engagement session, remember that we do not expect you to be a pro at this. We will do all the work! Keep in mind that It usually takes a good 20 minutes to warm up at the beginning, so try not to stress! Take this time to sit back and really enjoy this time together. Hug, kiss, flirt with each other, cuddle with each other... tell your significant other how much they mean to you and think about what you are really celebrating during your photo session... you are ENGAGED! Just be yourselves and have FUN!
