Whether your engagement session is with me or another talented photographer, let me share a few tips on how you can prepare for your shoot! Perhaps the biggest question is – “What should we wear?!” So… Below I’ve listed some tips on what I’ve found photographs best in front of the lens!
I. Choose two outfits. One dressy, one casual. Think formal and business casual. Ladies, don’t forget about Rent the Runway. I love that site for finding formalwear at a decent price! I also like to search Pinterest for style inspiration. Fellas, fitted suits, dark denim, button down shirts… you get the vibe. GQ all the way! Still stumped? Or looking for an extra personal touch? Reach out to my friend and fashion stylist, Styled by Randi. Randi is great because she can work with what you already own or help you find some new pieces to add to your closet. Either way, it’s a total win! Let her know I sent you!
II. Get glam. No, really. Schedule a hair and makeup appointment. And, don’t forget a mani/pedi, too!
III. Shine. Get that bling cleaned and get after that sparkle!!
IV. Coordinate, but don’t match. You shouldn’t want to look like twins, but definitely choose something that compliments each other.
V. Make a reservation at your favorite restaurant so you can have a date night following the shoot! I mean… you did get all dressed up. Don’t waste your cute outfit!
There you have it!! Now go work that camera, girl!!
