What to Wear For Your Engagement Session (Part 1)

On camera, solid black & white can make skin tones look very washed out and unflattering. I know, I know, but on your wedding day you may be wearing a white gown, and possibly a dark, or black suite or tuxedo. Trust me! It’s different. So, when choosing outfits for your engagement session, try to choose colors that POP and that compliment your hair & skin colors! Primary colors like red, royal blue and yellow photograph beautifully as well as emerald green, bright purples and pinks, oranges and many other colors that really POP!

Plan for at least one outfit change. We can do casual and then a bit more formal.

Ladies: If weather and wardrobe allows plan for at least one outfit to be a flowing dress. We can do a lot with flowing dresses.

Guys: For your "bit more formal" plan on a button down shirt with a pair of chinos, khakis, dress pants, or a nice pair of jeans.

Avoid: Fluorescent colors and clothes with fine lines, or loud with logos and designs.

Through it all remember to be comfortable!

If you do not like fitted clothing (super tight dresses or pieces that fit awkwardly) then leave them at home. So, if there are pieces in your closet that make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable, don’t include them in your engagement portrait wardrobe! Additionally, we will most likely be sitting on the ground, laying down, walking and doing other things that could be difficult if your clothing is uncomfortable.
