Engagement Sessions

Coordinate Outfits

Are you not sure what to wear for your engagement session? I’m here to help! You should bring one or two outfits to your session so I can get various looks for you. I suggest the following: BRING A “DRESSY “OUTFIT. It’s not every day you get all dressed up with your sweetheart and take photos together. Use this session as an excuse to go out and get fancied up! I’m not saying you have to wear a gown and tux (unless you want to), but maybe a dress or skirt for you, a suit or nice slacks and a button-up shirt for your fiancé. This outfit will be great for saving the date cards or the announcement in your local newspaper.

THE CASUAL LOOK. I also suggest you consider bringing a more casual outfit. This outfit is ideal for your more fun, relaxed photos. Tailored jeans and a nice shirt are always a great choice, especially if we will be walking around in nature often. Make sure to bring shoes specifically for this outfit, too.

COORDINATION IS KEY. The most crucial thing to remember is to coordinate. You don’t want to be match-matchy, but you want to coordinate. Choose similar colors and styles that photograph well together. For example, you don’t want to wear jeans if your fiancé wears a suit and tie in the same photo. Also, remember to dress for the location. For example, if you are doing a natural, rustic, vin, or tage session, you’ll want to avoid bright colors and instead wear neutrals.

 

THINGS TO AVOID: Logos, unless we’re doing a sports session and you’re wearing jerseys, etc.

Patterns—Try to stick with solid colours or minimal patterns. Plaid shirts are fine as long as your fiancé isn’t wearing stripes or polka dots. It’s a good rule of thumb to have only one partner wearing a pattern at a time.

Fluorescent colors – These don’t photograph well and can cast bright tones on your skin.
