If there’s anything you need to know first it’s to not stress about it! These tips and tricks will help you take the guesswork out of the equation so you can roll up to your session stress-free and stylin’. Now let’s get into it ✨
Pick out your vibe
That’s right! This is your time to shine, Pinterest. We need to get all of the inspiration and nail down what kind of aesthetic you’re going for! Do you want sunset golden hour photos in a dreamy field? Rooftop photos in a glam outfit? Cozy downtown coffee shop vibes? ☕️
You can even pick a location that holds meaning to you. This will make your photos 100x more special.
You would be surprised by how many essentials you already have in your closet… but this is the BEST excuse to shop 😉
Choose your colors
Picking colors doesn’t have to be difficult. I’m ALL about neutrals. They’re timeless and classy and you will be guaranteed to match. However, some pops of color are always fun so let’s factor in some things. If you’re doing a fall or winter engagement shoot, warmer and darker colors will be your best friend. You don’t want something that will wash you out, but the moody colors are definitely for those colder months. Spring and summer photoshoots look great with light colors and pastels! Consider your background when choosing your colors too. You don’t want anything that will clash too much. If you’re wanting your photos to be in a ton of greenery, don’t wear green! Wear something that will separate you from the background.
Another helpful tip…
compliment your outfits!! Don’t match! You want to complement each other by choosing colors that work well together. If everyone is wearing the same clothing, people will all tend to blend in together.
Okay.. patterns are kind of a big deal and people don’t really like to talk about it. If you or your partner has a shirt or dress with a pattern on it… have no fear! Just have ONE person wear a patterned outfit. Think of one person in a flannel and the other person in a plain-colored sweater. Again, we don’t want to clash or compete with the background. The less busy the better!
Who said engagement photo fashion has to be uncomfortable?! Not me! If you’re wanting to wear a tux or a glam dress, let’s do it! Just make sure that YOU feel comfortable in it! I know a ton of people are always nervous about being in front of the camera… but if you’re in an outfit that you feel comfortable and confident in, it’ll be SO much less nerve-wracking!
Comfortability is KEY 💗
